Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

21 May, 1817  


Patrick Larkin and Hugh Wilson, pedlars, from Lurgan, near Armagh, have been apprehended by the Peace Officers of the Head Office of Police, armed with loaded pistols, on suspicion of robbery. Larkin had two ten pound Bank Notes, and several others of the Belfast Bank; and the horse robbed from Mr. Smith, of Richhill, Armagh, was discovered at the White Bull, Thomas-street, by the Magistrates of the above office. Those men are strongly suspected of being part of the gang who robbed Mr. Bonner, of Dorset-street, on the Naas road, Dublin a few nights ago.


The information on this website is free and will always be so. However, there are many documents and records that we would like to show here that are only available for sale. If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website:
