Footnotes

  • The Pepper family had obtained grants of land in County Meath in the mid-seventeenth century, adopting as their seat Ballygarth Castle in the village of Julianstown. The Topographical Dictionary of Ireland of 1837 lists Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Pepper, apparently the sitter in the present lot, as the proprietor of the estate, which numbered nearly five hundred acres.

    At the turn of the 19th century, the Royal Meath Militia, or 17th Regiment, was under the command of the Pepper's Irish neighbour, the 1st Marquess of Headfort.
