  2. There lived in Coole, Campile, Co. Wexford a captain named Crean [?]. He was boycotted every-place he went. The smiths would not put shoes on his horses, the shop keepers would'nt sell their goods to him. The labouring people would'nt work for him. In the end his wife and family had to go out and till the land. When he had his corn ripe and threshed the miller would'nt grind it. He died with hunger in the end. His wife and family went around begging.
