"Ballyjamesduff, a market and post-town, and a district parish, in the barony of Castlerahan, county of Cavan, and province of Ulster, eight miles from Cavan and 44 miles from Dublin; containing 3227 inhabitants of which number 863 are in the town. The town is situated on the old mail-coach road from Virginia to Cavan and consists of five streets, containing together 150 houses. The market is on Tuesday and is amply supplied. Here is a constabulary police station, and petty sessions are held. The parish was created in 1831, by disuniting nine townlands from the parish of Castleraghan, five from that of Denn, two from Lurgan, and four from the parish of Kildrumferton."
