 John MAXWELL. It is likely that one of his daughters married a HAMILTON, given the name James MAXWELL HAMILTON mentioned in the marriage jointure of 1804. There are also earlier MAXWELL-HAMILTON marriage links. The MAXWELLS of Fellows Hall show up in a lineage posted at: http://www.stirnet.com/HTML/genie/british/mm4ae/MAXWELL03.htm
 Fellowshall also known as “Creamrum” in the Parish of Tynan, Co. Armagh.
 David OLIVER (prob 1725-Feb 1806), husband of Susannah WALKER. Curiously in spite of all the leases involving Ballyrea, he does not show up in the PRONI Freeholders Records with that particular holding. In fact the only David OLIVER to show up there is one at Bangor, Co. Down in 1813-1821.
 Laragh is a townland in the Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan. NOTE: There are other townlands named Laragh, but this one fits the description of being beside Cornacarrow in the earlier lease thatthis lease refers to.
 Carnacara AKA Cornacarrow, Parish of Aghnamullen, Barony of Cremorne. is a townland on the northern border of the townland of Laragh, Co. Monaghan. It is at the point where the Owenagh River flows from the south into Lough Eglish. See Map:
 This is a confusing bit of business: Natural Lives of the same David OLIVER Lessee and William OLIVER Both Sons to said David OLIVER and Both Twins. Other leases have David described as the father and William and Joseph OLIVER as the twins.
 Galbraith Galbraith LOWRY CORRY, b. 11 July 1706, d. 1769. Son of Robert LOWRY & Anna SINCLAIR. He married Sarah CORRY, daughter of Colonel John CORRY & Sarah LESLIE. Galbraith Lowry-Corry was baptised with the name of Galbraith Lowry. He held the office of High Sheriff of County Tyrone in 1733. He held the office of High Sheriff of County Monaghan in 1743. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for County Tyrone between 1748 and 1768. On 1764 his name was legally changed to Galbraith Lowry-Corry. He lived at Aheniss, Co. Fermanagh Their son Amar LOWRY-CORRY became the First Earl of Belmount. SOURCE: http://www.thepeerage.com/p12957.htm#i129569 ..
 Aughennis AKA Ahennis, Co. Fermanagh.
 I believe that one pepper corn was a contrived payment to mean essentially no payment would be required to the owner of the land – sort of like selling a property today for $1.00. It is necessary that something change hands.
 John KILPATRICK of Killylea (Parish of Tynana, Co. Armagh). James & John KILPATRICK held a lease for ten years for Killylea in 1832 from Representatives of John MAXWELL. NOTE: A James KILPATRICK also held a lease on lands at Tullysarren where the Mullinture OLIVERs also held leases.
 George STUART of Drumilly, Co. Armagh
 Drumilly There are two townlands with this name in Co. Armagh. One is in the Parish of Killevy, the second is in the Parish of Loughgall. I would bet it is the second one, but have nothing to base it on aside from clusters of where people associated with OLIVER deeds tend to come from.
 John SCOTT It is of interest that LDS has a record of a William SCOTT who married an Isabella OLIVER in the Presbyterian Church of Drumbo, County Down. in 1720. Worth Checking out! A William SCOTT was also one of the Derry fighters in 1689 from Co. Monaghan. Both a William & a John SCOTT are mentioned in a 1718 DEED: 38-403-24787. A John SCOTT of Umgola is mentioned in a 1796 DEED: 510-33-328019 concerning OLIVERs as well as a 1797 DEED: 506-95-328017.
