This collection contains the entire Testimonial Roll given to Lord Viscount Morpeth in 1841 when he left the position of Chief Secretary of Ireland.
The majority of the images contain the signatures on the testimonial roll. Because the pages are adhered together to form one long roll, individual documents are not contained in each image. To avoid missing any names, the images contain a margin of the previous and subsequent page on the roll. Only key the names from the primary page of the image. Images in the top and bottom margins will be found on other images.
When residnece infroamtion is available, key only townships, cities, and counties. Any address, business, or occupational information should not be keyed. The only exception is when the business appears as a name (not after a name). In this case, the business should be keyed as a given name.
Key the names in the order of the verticle columns, and not in horizontal order.
