William Gregory papers, 1794-1838.

The series consists of papers of William Gregory from 1794-1838. The bulk of the collection is comprised of records that relate to Gregory's service as Civil-Undersecretary of Ireland. The records include incoming and outgoing correspondence, account books, and official papers. The incoming (1799-1838, bulk 1813, 1819-1830) and outgoing (1807-1835) correspondence is mainly between Gregory and the Chief Secretaries concerning the Irish administration, Catholic emancipation, famine, and civil unrest. The correspondents include Sir Robert Peel, Charles Whitworth, Charles Grant, Charles Talbot (Baron Talbot), Henry Goulburn, Richard Wellesley, William Saurin, William Lamb (Viscount Melbourne), Francis Egerton (Earl of Ellesmere), William Vesey Fitzgerald (Baron Fitzgerald and Vesey, and Henry William Paget (Marquis Angelsey). Among the professional papers are the account books of the Irish Secret Service (1811-1826), the account of Secret Service Money (1806-1821), and a civil list of Ireland listing state officers, civil servants, their salaries and tenure. The papers also contain typescripts for Lady Gregory's, MR. GREGORY'S LETTERBOX. The work is comprised of letters written by Gregory from 1813-1835, which were transcribed and edited by Lady Gregory for publication. Many of these letters however, were not included in the published volume. The small amount of personal papers is comprised of letters from family members, personal account books (1790-1813, 1831-1839), and datebooks (1812-1836). Letters from William Gregory to his grandson, William Henry Gregory are found in William Henry Gregory's papers.
