    My ancestor Jonathan Short was a solicitor and his son was a Barrister. This is the information I found regarding them:

    Kings Inn
    Shortt, Jonathan, First son of Charles of Shinrone, Kings County, and Grace Gilbert, over 16, educated Cloughjordan, County Tipperary, afft (by parent, guardian or friend) Easter Term, 1798 (attorney, Exchequer, 1805 (entry from Exchequer roll)

    His son was John Short a Barrister.

    Trinity College, Dublin
    The register of admissions to Gray's inn, 1521-1889, together with the register of marriages in Gray's inn chapel, 1695-1754. 1835 John Shortt, B.A., Trinity College, Dublin, aged 21, eldest son of Jonathan S., late of Dublin, Esq., deceased. [Kilkenny, Esq.

    So does anyone know if any remaining records exist other than these two entries I found. Any other ideas where to research? I wondered who Jonathan was apprenticed to? An email to Kings Inn gave me no clues.
