This document was shared thanks to the generosity of Christine WRIGHT of Gilford Castle. It shows links between the BROWN family of Killynure and the BRADFORD and DONALDSONs of Co. Louth. Also, the property of Kiltybawn figures in the records of these leases which it seems became the home of Elizabeth Johanna DONALDSON nee JACKSON.

* He lived at Tullyvallen, but his lease included part of both townlands. This would have been the Alexander DONALDSON (1765-1834) whose son, John DONALDSON (1818-1854) married Eizabeth Johanna JACKSON (1817-1900).

 


 

 



[1] Thompson BROWN (1837-1915) married Elizabeth JACKSON (1843-1923) in 1867. This letter is four years after their marriage.

[2] Jack PERRY. I assume he was a lawyer or clerk at 11 Bachelors Walk.

[3] Jas EASTWOOD – nothing known as yet

[4] Owen CARRAGHER. In the 1766 Census of Creggan, he lived at Liscalgot – as did George JACKSON (1718-1782), the great-great-grandfather of Sir Thomas JACKSON. In 1822, a will was probated at Clogher for an Owen CARRAGHER of Killybolley. An abstract may be available. I would assume the date of the Deeds Registry property transfer would tie into this. A tombstone in Casteltown Graveyard has a record of a possible relation: CARRAGHER IHS Erected by Michael Carragher of Clanbrazil Street Dundalk in memory of his wife Mary Carragher who departed this life October 6th 1839 aged 61 years. In 1824, a number of CARAGHERs lived at Cullaville, including an Owen and a Patrick CARAGHER. See also DEED: 500-66-312060 dated 1795 Feb 13. One of the famous or rather infamous highwaymen of the region was Big Charlie CARAGHER (a ballad was penned to his fame – So unpopular was this man that for over 250 years not a single Carragher family in South Armagh named a son Charles or its Gaelic equivalent. See: http://www.burnsmoley.com/pages/area/calmor.php ). 

[5] Patrick GARLAND – nothing known as yet. I am fishing here. A Patrick GARTLAND of Carrickmacross had a will probated  in 1801. In 1847, a Patrick GARTLAN of Ceastlan East had a will probated at Clogher. In the Creggan graveyard, there are a number of Garland remains: James GARLAN of Corlat d. 1787, his daughter Mary d 1789 and her sister Anne d 1790 and their brother Richard d 1840; James’  brother Nicholas d. 1788

[6] Otherwise known as Kiltybane: (I am assuming this is the place in spite of the variant spelling) AKA-Lisleitrum was 447 acres in the Upper Fews, Parish Newtonhamilton, Co. Armagh

[7] Sam BUCHANAN – nothing known as yet

[8] Bernard GARLAND – nothing known as yet

[9] Mrs. Elizabeth Johanna DONALDSON (1817-1900) nee JACKSON, wife of John DONALDSON (1818-1854) and daughter of John JACKSON & Elizabeth McCULLAGH. She was already widowed by this time.

[10] Margaret BRADFORD (1786-1874) sister of Barbara BRADFORD and a great aunt of Elizabeth Johanna JACKSON.
