I've just discovered that an ancestor of mine from Co Armagh was declared bankrupt circa 1890.

Does anyone know where bankruptcy cases would have been heard then? What are the chances that the records would still exist and where would I find them?

I found out that he was bankrupt through the British Newspaper Archive and will continue to check that. It appears he went to the US to avoid the bankruptcy but then decided to return.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Ian

Hello Ian,

If you send me his full name and his address or location I will check to see if any court papers exist for 1890.

best regards

Thanks, Robert.

Alexander MacLean (spelt M'Clean in the News Letter) of Newtownhamilton. He was an auctioneer and grocer, and his brother-in-law, David Ardis, is also mentioned in the case.

Hello Ian

I checked the PRONi catalogue today for anything in relation to this matter.

I looked at general bankruptsy papers from 1787-1907 but found no mention of your Alexander McLean or McClean. I didn't have time to check on Armagh Court Papers.
