OLIVER, Andrew - PRINGLE
NOTES: 1765 Oct 30 Deed of Release between Andrew OLIVER  of Corrodown  [?] in the Parish of Donagh & Co. of Monaghan, Farmer and Elizabeth OLIVER  wife of said Andrew OLIVER of the one part and William PRINGLE  of Caledon in the County of Tyrone, Gent of the other part £35 pd by PRINGLE for release one half part of the land of Mullin  formerly in the possess of Thomas GREISSON  deceased - for lives of William PRINGLE and William GREISSON - abt 10 acres in Barony of Tohrany  , Parish of Tynan & Co. Armagh. Witness Wm. DONNOLLY  wigmaker and Bryan Mc[C?]ANNA  , Labourer both of Caledon.
 Andrew OLIVER of Corragh Down aka Corraghdown, Parish of Donagh, Co. Monaghan. NOTE: The parish of Donagh is also close to the townlands of Lislooney and Derryhaw where several OLIVERs held leases for several generations. At this point, I am leaning towards the likelihood that he was the Andrew OLIVER who was a son of William OLIVER (born bef 1700 - died aft 1730) and Elizabeth HARDY. This is based on the convergence of deeds and geography, but does not constitute unassailable proof. The deed of 1764 August 5th is significant because in it Andrew OLIVER of Coraghdown is demising lands of Carricknaveagh, the part adjoining Carrickatee in Co. Monaghan. Both these townlands are on the southern border of the townland of Creeve. This is where several known OLIVERs, who had a brother named Andrew, held leases to mills in what was then known as Creevy Oliver (now simply Creevy). Another option is that he may be related to the OLIVERs of Tattykeel - a tree where the earliest generations are based on the research in Henry (William) Oliver: 1807-188: Ancestry and Descendants by Henry Oliver Rea, 1959. Many of the suppositions in this tree need to be revisited.
 Corradown aka Corraghdown, Parish of Donagh, Co. Monaghan – it was part of the Leslie estates in the mid-1800s. On its eastern border is the townland of Annaghroe, parish of Aghaloo, Co. Tyrone.Annaghroe is in the southermost part of Co. Tyrone, the part where the border of Co. Tyrone dips down and has Co. Monaghan on the west and Co. Armagh on the east.
 Elizabeth OLIVER. As yet, I do not know who she might be.
 William PRINGLE of Caledon in the County of Tyrone, Gent. His will was probated 1779. He was the son of John PRINGLE of Lyme Park. The family shows up as signatories on many OLIVER leases.
 Mullin AKA Mullan, Parish of Tynan, Co. Armagh. This townland bordered on the townland of Breaghy, which in turn bordered on the townland of Lislooney – a townland that William OLIVER held a lease to as early as 1718.
 Thomas GREISSON
 Barony of Tohrany AKA Barony of Tiranny, Co. Armagh
 Wm. DONNOLLY wigmaker of Caledon, Co. Tyrone
 Bryan Mc[C?]ANNA, Labourer, of Caledon. I suspect his surname was McKENNA or McCAN..
