Rich. Caulfield Council Book of Cork & early annals



To enquire whether the wall without the North gate, whereupon John Matthew, glover, now builds upon, James Lombard's land, as he supposeth, belonging to the Corporation [sic], or any nuisance to them or no. We find the wall without .the North gate, whereupon John Mathew begins his building, was built by the Corporation, and upon whose land same wall is built we know not, and this is our verdict. For the admittance of the above wall, John Mathew took a lease from the Corporation, for which he is to pay 5s. per annum to the Chamberlain of the City revenues. 5 May, 1631.
