My gg-grandfather William Bailie (1843-1896) was born in County Louth and according to his marriage certificate his father was a John Bailie, farmer. William Bailie himself was a policeman.

On PRONI wills there is a John Bailie Treagh, County Louth died 1876 and the executor is a Hugh Bailie of Scarva, County Down "Sub constable of Police".

Given that I have an ancestor William Bailie, a policeman born 1843 in Louth - and there is a Hugh Bailie policeman (born circa 1846 in County Louth) mentioned in the 1876 will of John Bailie of Treagh, County Louth - I suspect this John is my ancestor. I need further information to prove that though.

Does anyone have any information on the Bailie familie who lived at Treagh?
