This exercise resulted in the Register of Trees which have survived for various counties in Ireland. The registrations were recorded at the quarter sessions and published in The Dublin Gazette. Subsequently this information was entered in the ledger entitled Register of Trees into which, depending on the diligence of the Justice of the Peace, the original affidavits were copied out in full or in summary form. This information can be useful to genealogists interested in a particular family who had long-established roots in a particular townland or county.

Sir Compton was MP for Dublin for forty-four years. He was also uncle and heir to the 4th and last Lord Santry , the infamous Hellfire Club member who was sentenced to death for murdering a barman only to be reprieved by George III.
Legend holds that Sir Compton negotiated the reprieve by threatening to alter the course of the River Dodder, a vital water supply for Dublin, which flowed through his estate at Templeogue. Transcribed by Michael Purcell, July Pat Purcell Papers. Short of having a photocopier it appears there may have been several clerks recording the proceedings, with slight variations on each copy. It appears that Walsh and Headen were sentenced to be transported but on a document dated the same day they were declared "Objects of Mercy" by members of The Grand Jury and the Transportation Order was rescinded.
The dispute obliged Thomas to travel to Dublin on June 26th , just days after the Farranan-Walsh dispute was heard in Carlow, to see his attorney, John Carroll. One name that appears frequently in this matter is John Waters. On June 19th, Thomas headed out to his Longford estates to make some personal enquiries, returning to Dublin 8 days later on 7th July. On July 12th, he returned from Dublin to Kill with his sister-in-law, Kitty Isaac , and stayed there until August 21st.
He and Kitty then returned to Dublin while, on Monday August 24th, Thomas headed north for the Longford Assizes where he now had an appointment. During the next 10 weeks, which he spent at Kill, he must have mused as to what to do next.

Although the Act legislated against bribery and corrupt practice, the electors were mainly the tenants of the landlord families and bribery, corruption and undue influence continued to be an open part of the system, with objections registered promiscuously by both sides against individual voters.
The voters were "produced" by the candidates in front of the sheriff in the courthouse, swore the necessary oaths and declared for the candidate in question. The details were recorded and open to inspection, allowing for objections to be registered. Rioting, with the disenfranchised Catholic tenentry joining in, was common place. Thanks to Adams.
