Bartholomew Thomas Duhigg
|Bartholomew Thomas Duhigg|
Bartholomew Thomas Duhigg (1750?–1813), Irish legal antiquary.
Duhigg also projected, but never published, A Completion of King's Inns Remembrancer, giving an Account of the most Eminent Irish Lawyers, and a History of the Union with Ireland (History of the King's Inns, page 614). In a letter from Dr. Anderson to Bishop Percy, 3 September 1805, Duhigg is noted as "a writer of curious research and information", but as writing "a bad English style". In addition to his legal investigations he appears to have studied with much care the old Irish language.
He died in 1813. He was married, and had one son, an officer in the army.
