John TOWNLEY[6]. Nine sheets. A true copy. J. BUTLER.



[1] John  COULTER (1818-1901) of Ballsmill in the County of Armagh farmer. At least, This is the John COULTER, son of Thomas COULTER and Anne DOWDALL of Skyhill. He married Hannah LUNDY in 1852 and their son was Rev. Launcelot COULTER. His brotehr was Launcelot COULTER (1813-1873)

[2] William POLLOCK of Dundalk in the County of Louth Surgeon. NOTE: An earlier William POLLOCK was a farmer of Carrickastuck mentioned in a deed dated December 4, 1776. In Griffiths valuation, a William POLLOCK was recorded as leasing a dispensary house at Annaghavackey from Samuel BRADFORD. Going by a letter from Eliza JACKSON née OLIVER dated November 7, 1883, he may  have had a daughter who married a Dr. WILSON.

[3] Thomas SHEWELL see also Deed 1852 February 17. He died after making his will January 12th, 1813. A Thomas SHEWELL was in Dundalk as early as 1710. He died after making his will January 12th, 1813.  Also, there was a marriage between a Samuel COULTER and an Ismay SHEWEL in 1776. SOURCE: Marriage Licence Bonds - WW25: Diocese of Armagh. Other SHEWELLs show up in the Louth County Archives. SOURCE: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~fianna/county/louth/rodn1837.html  

[4] Samuel BRADFORD (1803-1881) of Cavananore in the County of Louth gentleman. I know nothing about him other than he was the son of Samuel BRADFORD and Margaret HENRY. He was one of 5 children, and his older brother Thomas BRADFORD ended up at Carnbeg.

[5] John  COULTER Junior. I would have assumed that this meant that he was a son of John COULTER aforementioned, but unless that John COULTER had a wife before Hanna LUNDY, this is unlikely since the COULTER-LUNDY marriage occurred about 1852..

[6] John TOWNLEY NOTE: I know nothing about him.
