Argue & Phibbs, Solicitors

This long-forgotten Sligo, Ireland based firm of solicitors was a partnership between Mr W. H. Argue and Mr Talbot Phibbs. A 1920’s newspaper reported that they were actively considering taking on a third member of staff, a solicitor from England by the name of Cheetam.

    My mothers name was May isabel Argue, born in Lifford and brought up in Lifford House, an hotel used by the Circuit Judges.

    I remember her mentioning these solicitors as being a relative bu I know nothing further.

    There wer brothers Norman. Vic.Bob, and Rex and a sister, Peggy.
    All are now dead, my mother died around 1990 at 93, I believe. Rex was a director of the linen firm, Herdmans of Sion Mills

    I have lived in Australia since 1966, my only blood relative is my sister, Aldwyth Searles who is 90, I will be 81 in March.

    If there is any info. about my family I would be pleased to receive it.

      It is reported else where the Mr W. H. Argue’s father was a policeman who came originally from County Cavan but upon retiring from the R.I.C. moved to live in Sligo. Unfortunatly no name is given.
