Gogarty, C.C., in the County Louth Archaeological & Historical Society Journal, Vol 1, No.3, 1906.   The format of the above list is slightly different.   It is not clear from the journal article what the connection is between the goings-on in the by-election, fought between Blayney T. Balfour Esq., Alan Bellingham Esq., Faithful Fortescue Esq., and Stephen Sibthorpe, and the above list, though it was obviously a bitterly fought contest.]

Blaney Balfour Approbation 1794

[Freeman's Journal, 25 March 1794]



To BLANEY BALFOUR, Esq; Late High Sheriff of the County of LOUTH


The Address of the GRAND JURORS thereof, at LENT ASSIZES, 1794.




We take the earliest Opportunity which the present Assizes offer, of expressing to you our sense of your spirited, manly, and prudent, Conduct, in the office of High Sheriff, throughout a Year of much difficulty and great public Disturbance.


Every man in the county, who is attached to the true principles of the Constitution, who reveres the Laws, and knows that the security of his Liberty and Property depends on their enforcement, and on the purity and respectability of Juries, must feel with us, the most cordial Approbation of your Conduct, and a sincere Gratitude for your Exertions.


Accept, then, our warmest Acknowledgements, and believe us to be,


            With the utmost respect and esteem,

                        Your very faithful and

                                    Obedient humble servants,


            John Foster, Foreman,                                  William Filgate,

            Mathew Fortescue,                                        William Sheils,

            Richard Dawson,                                           John Leigh,

            Henry Bellingham,                                          William Eccleston,

            Richard Cooper,                                             Nicholas Coddington,

            John William Foster,                                      Norman Steele,

            Wallop Brabazon,                                           Philip Brabazon,

            Henry Foster,                                                 Thomas William Filgate,

            John Thomas Foster,                                      Acheson Thompson,

            George Fostescue,                                          Alexander McClintock,

            Thomas Lee,                                                   Wm. Lat. Blacker.




To which Mr. BALFOUR returned the following Answer:




Permit me to return you my grateful Thanks for the flattering manner in which you have been pleased to express your approbation of my Conduct, whilst I served as Sheriff for the County of Louth.


Your Address is equally honourable and unexpected, conscious that I could deserve no merit from following the simple line of my duty.


To pursue, without deviation, that path which has lead to the Approbation of so respectable a Body, shall at all times be the Endeavour of him who has honour to assure you that he is, with unfeigned gratitude and respect,


Gentlemen, your most devoted,

            Humble, and obedient Servant,

                        B. BALFOUR
