WALKER-McCULLAGH

Ballynahonemore 1739-1810 Index

 

This deed may be significant because of the name WALKER - a David OLIVER married a Susannah WALKER. Also the mention of Ballynahonemore and the name McCULLAGH- a townland close to so many OLIVER leases in the mid-1700s as well as a name that figures in OLIVER intermarriages.

[1] Gervais WALKER of Kilmacrew, Parish of Armagh, Co. Armagh  Gent. I do not know if there is a familial link to the Susannah WALKER who married David OLIVER of Ballyrea, but I suspect that there is one. SOURCE: DEED: 1778, November 20 . I suspect a connection to an earlier GERVASE WALKER, son of Thomas WALKER & Isabel ABELL, who was born Abt. 1566 in Kilmore,  Armagh, Ireland, and died 15 Sep 1677. SOURCE: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, International Genealogical Index.

[2] Kilmacrew, Parish of Armagh, Co. Armagh 

[3] William McCULLAGH of Ballynahonemore, Parish of Armagh, Co. Armagh, farmer. NOTE: A Jane OLIVER, daughter of William OLIVER and Margaret STEEL married a John McCULLAGH – mid to late 1700s. I suspect a connection. See also Alexander McCULLAGH footnote.

[4] Ballynahonemore, Parish of Armagh, Co. Armagh. On the northern border of this townland is the townland of Drumadd. It is likely significant that this was the home of Elizabeth STEEL at the time of her marriage to William OLIVER(1730-1816) who was the brother of David OLIVER and brother-in-law of Susannah WALKER.

[5] James NEILSON. There is a subsequent James NEILSON of Ballyrea in a deed dated 1774 (SOURCE: DEED: 305-312-20214).

[6] John WAGH

[7] George WALKER now of Newry, Co. Down

[8] James DUNLAP of Drumkirk of Co. Armagh 

[9] Drumkirk of Co. Armagh  There is a Drumhirk in the parish of Derrynoose. I may have mistranscribed the name.It is on the border of Lisnadill Parish and hence close to several other OLIVER leased townlands.

[10] Adam DUNLAP

[11] Hugh CUMING of Kerneyhill, Co. Armagh. A Samuel CUMING, gent of Keady, Co. Armagh was involved in an OLIVER lease November 7, 1781. SOURCE: DEED: 370-333-251896. I don’t know if there is a connection.

[12] Kerneyhill, aka Kearneyhill, aka Kearney Hill, in the townland of Cavanacaw, Parish of Lisnadill, Co. Armagh. Thanks to Linda Leonard (August 2013 email), I have now seen this placename on a map. It is on the NW corner of Cavanacaw Rd. & Drumcaw Rd. This is south of Armagh, between B31 - the road to Newtownhamilton and A28, the road to Newry. In the historic maps of this spot, there is a house and orchard. Although a John McCULLAGH, a linen merchant married to a Jane OLIVER, lived there in 1818, there is no trace of them in Griffiths Valuation.

[13] Alexander McCULLAGH of Ballynahonemore, Parish of Armagh. See also William McCULLAGH footnote.
