Land in succession from:
Edmond Joynt>Michael Joynt>Patrick Joynt

I firmly believe there is a great big chance that this Edmond Joynt who was b. c. 1784 could be my ggg grandfather- father of my gg grandfather, David Joynt!!
I would just dearly love to know more about these people!! Any clue would not be too small!

I believe these folks mentioned in this newspaper article below of the families above. I am almost postive the David Joint mentioned below is my gg grandfather, David Joint (Joynt). There have been no other David Joynts found in Ireland except for my gg grandfather. David Joynt later moved to Ashfield, Beagh, Galway. Possibly he gained some share of land in a dowry with his marriage to Bridget McDermott. In Griffiths Valuation (Ashfield Desmesne) McDermotts lived right next door to David Joynt.

Clare Journal Jan 13 1851
Clare Assizes

David Joint, John Geogan, Margaret Geogan and Martin Joint were indicted for an assault and rescue of cattle seized for rent by Mr.Kerin, agent. Not guilty - it having been proved by a policeman who was present that the seizure was made before sunrise.

[Tithe law provided that private property could be taken if a person defaulted. It also provided that personal property in the form of livestock could be seized only between sunrise and sunset, and that animals behind locked doors could not be taken.]

And I believe this is the Patrick Joynt mentioned as the last landholder in above records.
