At the Waterford Assizes, James Brien and William Brien were trial for burglary and robbery in the house of Michael Duggan, and the abduction of Eleanor Duggan, at Tinnescart, 10th March.— Michael Duggan stated that his house was attacked and broken into by a party in the of Captain Rock and his men, on the night of the 10th March ; he was robbed of his arms and horse, and his sister was taken off; saw William Brien in the house and James outside; he went shortly after to the house of the prisoners in search of his sister, but did not find her; she was brought back by her own friends, who went in search of her; he had known the prisoners several years. —Eleanor Duggan stated, that when she was taken away, she was placed on a horse behind William Brien, and brought off much against her will, to a house at Old Parish, where she remained until found by her friends; she stated that not the least violence was offered to her, but rather the reverse. There was a proposal of marriage made by the prisoner William, but to which she would not consent.
John Bull, 12 Aug 1822.
