[1] James DICKIE of Carrickastuck – the “of Carrickastuck” confuses me. Otherwise, I would have thought it was James DICKIE (1771-1835) of Clonaleenan.

[3] Alexander DONALDSON (1771-1843) of Philipstown. He never married.Son of Andrew DONALDSON and Catherine BAILLIE.

[4] Stewart KING

[5] John FOSTER. 1st Baron Oriel (1740 – 23 August 1828) SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Foster,_1st_Baron_Oriel

[6] Collon , Parish of Collon, Co. Louth. There is a photo of the FOSTER home at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Foster,_1st_Baron_Oriel

[7] Rt Honble Frederick Visct. Boyne aka Frederick HAMILTON

[8] Sir Charles HAMILTON Bart d. 1818 at which point the title of the Hamilton Baronetcy, of Dunamana in the County of Tyrone became extinct. Son of  Sir John Stewart HAMILTON.

[9] John Stewart HAMILTON (c1740-1802) formally of the city of Dublin Esq. deceased

[10] Frederick HAMILTON of Dunfurth, Co. Kildare, Esq. eldest son of Frederick HAMILTON Esq.

[11] Dunfurth, Co. Kildare

[12] Capt. Charles GRANT Esq. Capt. in his Majesty's Royal Navy. On Jan 25, 1818, he was appointed to the Most Honourable Military of the Bath. SOURCE: London Gazette, Sept 16, 1815. He was the son of Sir James GRANT & Anne COLQUHOUN and lived at Cardonay, Scotland. SOURCE: www.theperage.com

[13] Charles COULTER  son of James COULTER. He probably married Mary McCORMICK. He was Annaghavackey, and died after 1791.

[14] Henry COULTER, son of James COULTER. His wife is unknown, but he had a son, Ralph COULTER.

[15] Paul PARKS (1767-1845), Co. of Louth revenue officer. Husband of Susannah BAILIE.

[16] James POLLOCK

[17] Patrick LAWLESS jr.

[18] William FOSTER Esq.

[19] Robert DICKIE (1740-1825) son of Samuel James DICKIE and Mary BAILLIE, and husband of Mary REID.

[21] Andrew BRADFORD. I am guessing that this is Andrew Coulter BRADFORD (1788-1847), Thomas BRADFORD & Elizabeth BREAKEY.

[22] Samuel BRADFORD. This is probably Samuel BRADFORD sr. (1739-1818) husband of Margaret HENRY.

[23] Andrew BRADFORD. I am guessing that this is the same Andrew Coulter BRADFORD above.

[25] Shortstone. There are two townlands: Shortstone East & Shortstone West, both in the Parish of Roche.  I would expect that Shortstone West is the townland in question. In the 1854 Grifffiths Valuation, pretty much the whole townland is owned in fee by a Robert BAYLEY. The only part that is not is a house and small garden held in fee by Mary COULTER, who would have been the widow of Samuel COULTER who was murdered in 1851. Her maiden name was BAILIE.

[26] John BAILLIE. This may be the John BAILLIE (1730-1810), but since he would be already dead, there may be another one that I have yet to unearth.

[27] Cloughmagniggan I suspect this is Clonaleenaghan aka Clonaleenan, Parish of Creggan, Co. Louth.

[28] Hugh CULLAN

[29] Barronstown, Parish of Barronstown, CO. Louth.

[30] James LAWLESS

[31] Alexander PARKER, shoemaker in Dundalk. In 1834, an Alexander PARKER married Mary BRADFORD of Cavananore, Co. Louth. See: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/1857Aug1-COULTER-CHARLETON.html

[32] John TOWNLEY

[33] E. WOODHOUSE
