1756 The County Louth Commission of Array


HOME PAGE                 SITE MAP



1756 Commission of Array for County Louth


The following names are taken from document reference number SP66/B/14 in the Public Records Office, Kew, England.


The Commission of Array was held nationwide in September of 1756. As this was the era of the Penal Laws, Roman Catholics were not permitted to bear arms. Consequently, the names in the following list can be assumed to be members of the Protestant faith. The Commission was held to ascertain the number of eligible men available to protect the country and to train these men in the use of firearms etc.


For a detailed account of the Commissions of Array in County Louth see:
