Richard Jackson Charitable Trust
Gerald Hamilton lenox-Conyngham, Trustee 1963-1991. His typed manuscript written in 1974, covered the history of the Trust, the minutes to 1945, the list of members to 1952 and Appendices 1 & 5. Fortunately one of the Trustees had kept a copy. Gerald was a brother-in-la of Hurbert Butler of Kilkenny.
Revd. George Mervyn Kingston, Vicar Choral Armagh Cathedral from 2003 was previously Rector of Creggan, Forkhill Union, Ballymascanlan Union and Rathcor 1990-2003 and Secretary of the Trustees from 1993.
Three paragraphs have been added to the pre-1945 minutes along with some corrections of typing errors. The minutes from 1945 and list of members have been brought up to the present, with the dates members served on the Trust, which were not in the original manuscript. There is a small addition to Appendix 1. A Postscript and Appendices 2, 3 and 4 have been added. Having worked closely with Creggan Local History Society for 13 years, I am pleased to offer this article to the Society for publication.
