·        He was a substantial landowner with substantial holdings in the parish of Killevy, Armagh.

·        After an extensive fire in 1836, these premises [Ballymascanlan Corn Mill] were repaired and within two years were leased to Launcelot Coulter who kept the mills open dany and night for three months of the year and for twelve hours a day on average for the remaining nine months. After the Famine, Coulter purchased the grain from local farmers, dried it in kilns, ground it into flour and sold the finished product to bakers in Dundalk ...To cope with the linen boom of the 1860s, Coulter had installed a scrutch mill at Ballymascanlan which had processed 333 stone of flax by the end of 1864. On his death in September 1873 the mills passed to his relative, Joseph Crawley, who sold his interest to Francis Boyle. SOURCE: Post Famine Economy of the Flurry Valley. Don Johnston. p235.Co.
