I heard this story form John Burbage, Drumlish. He is 63 years of age.
Lord Granard was landlord of part of the district and Colonel Douglas of another portion. They were in the district from time immemorial and Colonel Douglas lived in England. They were considered fairly good landlords. There were some evictions but no plantings. The land was always in farms. Farms were subdivided on marriage.
