I beleive they went to 'read' law in Dublin at Kings Inn. You probably had
Church of Ireland in your period. I'll check further. It wouldn't do much
learn Scottish law as it is significantly differnt from English (and Irish)
In any case the records are in the Kings Inns Library in Dublin. Apparently
students were required to complete a year of study in London. P 125
Falley "Irish and Scotch-Irish Ancestral Research".
P 167 in the Hodgson Collection (National Library, Dublin), besides deeds
and other documents from the estates of Sir Hans Hamilton, Co Down,
late 17th, early 18th centuries, records of the estate of Wm Dongan of
Clane, Kildare, census extracts, is a chronological list of Irish students
admitted to the Inner Temple, London 1547-1657 and other records.
P 168. A list of members of Kings Inns 1607-1771 with dates of admission
and some death dates is in Lodges Manuscripts. Also a list of Catholic
conversts (dates, names, residences) 1703-1772, convert's certificates,
naturalized Protestants (places of firth, occupation, etc), certificates
of conformity (to the church of Ireland), denizations of Scots and other
foreigners from Richard II to George I).
Are these collections filmed and in LDS? probably.
Grenham "Tracing your Irish Ancestors" p 123 has a great section on
occupations. For Attorneys and Barristers he has "King's Inns Admission
Papers 1723-1867" Phair and Sadlier, IMC 1986, NL IR 340 k i and
Dublin Directories. Also check Belfast directories for attorneys. There are
some from the early 18th century. Bardon "History of Ulster" might have
some PRONI sources in his bibliography.
