In this paper I propose to direct your attention to some statistical information which I have collected respecting the sales of estates in Ireland by the Incumbered Estates Court. The questions which I proposed to myself in arranging the information which I collected are the following:?First?"Does it appear that any necessity existed for establishing the cheap, simple, and expeditious forms of procedure of the Incumbered Estates Court, in lieu of the proceedings previously required in the Courts of Chancery and Exchequer? Secondly?Is there any evidence of the parties most interested having confidence in the proceedings of the new court? Thirdly?At what rates of purchase have the estates been really sold? Fourthly?To what cause is the difference of prices realized for the different classes of estates to be ascribed?
Description:A paper read before the statistical section of the British Association, at Edinburgh, August 6th, 1850.
