Many thanks for taking the time to share with us your list of names that you are trying to find for your Masters!

Before 1864 records were kept in the form of church and parish records, all the surviving records have been sorted into county-based genealogical centres

We also have an Irish Genealogy Resources article on our main website that has lots of helpful links that may be of interest too.

Hopefully, we will have some members or industry partners who may be able to help with the list.

Hi Ian, the website www.findmypast.com has prison records - most date from the 1800s but there are records for Kilmainham Gaol from 1789: https://www.findmypast.co.uk/articles/world-records/full-list-of-the-irish-family-history-records/institutions-and-organisations/irish-prison-registers-1790-1924. Some people may have spent some time in Kilmainham having been moved from their own local prisons before being transported.

In terms of the John Brown who was tried in Down, I would recommend that you contact Down County Museum which is based in the old Downpatrick Jail: DCMuseum@nmandd.org (http://www.downcountymuseum.com/home.aspx)

Best wishes with your research,

Ulster Historical Foundation
