This does not include all the COULTERs or
COLTERs – only the ones that I felt might be most likely to show a relationship
to our known COULTERs.I cannot add much to the background of most
of them – save to suspect that many of them are likely to be related to the
COULTERs that I am trying to nail down. When it comes to the COULTERs of
Mounthill, I feel reasonably sure that they are likely to be relations of the
Samuel COULTER who was murdered in 1851. In 1818 and 1826, there was at least
one John COULTER, one Samuel COULTER, one Samuel COULTER jr. and one John
COULTER jr.. How the relationships between them might look, I can’t say.
According to the Creggan records, a John COULTER of Mounthill was confirmed in
1833, at age 16, hence born in 1817. He would make a good candidate for one of
the jr. COULTERs. A will was probated for a Samuel COULTER in 1841, but whether
he might be the jr. or the sr. one, I can’t say.

Coulter Freeholder records from PRONI –
COULTER. It may be that he was the grandson of
Alexander COULTER (1637-1721) – the ancestor of the COULTERs of Carnbeg.
 Clady, probablyParish of
Kilclooney, Co. Armagh. Since Cladymore is on the northern border of Cladybeg,
I would guess that they are both included in
Clady and that the division into two townlands happened after 1723.
Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh. This townland is in the northern part of the
aka Echlinville, parish of St. Andrews alias Ballyhalbert.
 Glassdrummond. This may be a townland in the parish of Kilclooney, Co.
Armagh – but my hunch is that it is more likely
to be be Glasdrumman in the parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh on the eastern border
of Mounthill. Why? Because it is on the border of Mounthill and too many names
overlap. More work is needed.
is in the parish of Shankill, Co. Armagh.
I would guess that this might be Tullyvallen, Parish of Newtownhamilton. The
thing that puzzles me is that I would have thought that the two would be
Rock. This may be in the Parish of Mullaghbrack, Co, Armagh. This townland is
on the northern border of Kilclooney.
I haven’t a clue which townland this might be.
parish of Kilmactranny, Co. Sligo.There are also the townlands
of Rover Upper and Lower in the parish of Kilronan, Co. Roscommon. This is
interesting given that there was a Nathanial COULTER (and this is not a common
name) who was associated with the Parish of Creggan.
