The Times, 9th Feb 1895: Charlton Trust

A question affecting the alienation of Protestant endowments came before the judicial committee of the Privy Council today in the Council Chamber, Dublin Castle.

A scheme had been drawn up for the administration of the Charlton Trust which was an endowment made in 1792 by Thomas Charlton, of Curratown, near Navan, in the County Meath, to give marriage portions of £6-16-6 to the sons and daughters of Protestant day labourers in the counties of Meath and Longford who should marry with the consent of their parents.
