Mullagrewan Mr Robert Walker and Mr. Thomas CARR are
tenants. Note In the survey this is called Cleggan and in the country called
Donaghmore. Here it was that the famous Dr. Walker dwelt. I say famous
because of his great services at Derry in the last rebellion, the Rebels
burnt his house here, and his sonn Mr. John Walker is now rebuilding of it,
and the present Lord Primate for his Encouragement gave him what
Timber he desired for that use. This contains 116 acres 1r 24p Irish
plantation measure. There is a great deal of good meadow belonging to this
and on this farm is a very good corn mill built with Lyme and stone.
