TABLES USED IN RESEARCH

Notes Date last revised
NOTE: I have grouped the County based tables at the top of this page and the Family-based Tables beneath them.
 
ARMAGH  
1703 View Of the Archbishop of Armagh. These are notes are only of the portions of this document that are of interest to myself and those looking at similar names: OLIVER & JACKSON as well as townlands connected to them in some way. November 1, 2011
Co. Armagh - Hearth Money Rolls for the Barony of Ardmagh. I worked from two main sources: http://www.failteromhat.com/armaghhearth/ardmagh.htm and The Ire-Atlas Townland Database and used them to guess the contemporary name of townlands based on the sounds of the names as well as the names of adjacent townlands that show up in the Registry on the same page. This latter method may have been misleading. I have also been guided by connections that I have noticed in later deeds. Some boxes were shaded in order to draw my attention to names & places of interest with respect to OLIVER connections. July 26, 2007

Co. Armagh - Bradshaws 1819 Directory of the City of Armagh When Thomas Bradshaw published his Directory in 1820 he wrote that it contained an alphabetical list of the merchants, manufacturers and inhabitants of the towns of Newry, Armagh, Dungannon, Portadown, Tandragee, Lurgan, Waringstown, Banbridge,Warrenpoint, Rostrevor, Kilkeel and Rathfriland. Listed here are all the entries for Armagh city. Although it is a useful early source of information it is far from a comprehensive one. A census of the city in 1817 estimated the population at 7010, but this list only includes 620 names. SOURCE: http://www.asaz58.dsl.pipex.com/brad.htm
My idiosyncratic notes relate to what I am learning about connections of any of these people to members of our family. Warning - this a 24 page file and may load slowly.

Co. Armagh - Piggots 1824 Directory It is interesting to compare this Directory with Bradshaws Directory done only a few years earlier. Both represent only a small sampling of the population - likely geared towards those who would be prepared to purchase such a directory. I note that New Streeet AKA Navan Street is not included, for example, although there were people living there who would have received notice. So, just because your people of interest are not mentioned doesn't mean that they were not there.Warning - this a 29 page file and may load slowly. July 2, 2008
Co. Armagh - Creggan Parish, BMDs These BMDs are the ones from Creggan Parish that seemed to me to be likely fits for our family history. I looked for pertinent names and townlands and then annotated them to the best of my current knowledge. WARNING This file is a 13 page table and may be slow loading, depending on your computer configuration. July 24, 2006

Co. Armagh - First Armagh Presbyterian This is a work in progress. There are likely errors in transcription - both as a result of my work and also the work of the original transcriber. I have been doing my best to match names with deeds and family trees. If there are place names that have alternate spellings that I have not included, I would be grateful to know more. Some are hard to track down. If you know more about any of these people, please let me know. Notes updated. I have also added another source for these records. SEE: Armagh Marriages 1707-1728

Co. Armagh - Freeduff BMDs - selected records of pertinent families These records of families pertinent to our family tree still need to be double checked for accuracy, but I don't know when I may again have access to the film, so better this than nothing (I figure). It should also be remembered that there may be some duplication of people who also attended Creggan Church of Ireland in the nearby community of Creggan. July 27, 2006

Co. Armagh 1864 Griffiths Research Notes These are merely rough notes - but I am posting them in case they are of use to fellow researchers. In the future, my plan is to organize the data more efficiently. September 23, 2008
1766 Creggan Parish Census These are the names that are most likely related to members of our extended family. Unfortunately, I do not have access to this source right now. I believe I accessed it in Ireland years ago – possibly at PRONI - but early on in my research, I neglected to keep notes of sources. An act of great folly. If and when I can get to this census again, other family names would be of interest, in particular the names of DICKIE and BAILIE. December 8, 2008
1911 Census of Killynure with notes COUSER, STOOPS, CARROLL, FINEGAN, CAROLAN, BROWN, MONTGOMERY, SMYTH, MACKLE, FEGAN. February 10, 2010
Cavananore Timeline The connections of the COULTERs and BRADFORDS with Cavananore begin in the late 1600s and carry through to the early 20th Century.Updated. November 3, 2008
September 1, 2009
LOUTH  
Co. Louth 1850 landlords & freeholders Surnames mentioned in 1850 Anglo Celt News that appear in Griffiths Valuation. September 17, 2008
Co. Louth 1864 Griffiths Valuations I have assembled this table to enable me to begin to make sense of the various property entanglements in Co. Louth that involved the BRADFORDs, COULTERs, JACKSONs, DICKIEs and other family members related to Sir Thomas JACKSON. At present, it is merely a work in progress, but I thought it might be worth sharing in the interim as other researchers may find it useful. Updated September 24, 2008

Council book of Drogheda - Jackson references Starting in 1657, the first generation -Richard JACKSON of Drogheda (carpenter, sheriff etc.) - seems to have been quite successful. His son, Alderman Richard JACKSON also seems to have succeeded although his various pension requests in 1713-1715 lead one to wonder how well he was doing near the end of his life. By 1727, his son George seems even more financially precarious as he pleads for money so he can place his two sons as apprentices. The Corporation finally says, enough in 1730: and yt for the future, no petition or application be received from the said George Jackson for any further relief. February 26, 2010
MONAGHAN  
Co. Monaghan - 1876 Coroner's Casebook. This Coroner's Case Book was in the possession of a family member and was given to me a few years ago. It belonged to Dr. Robert Hamilton REED (1847-1881) I am the great-grand niece of his wife. October 4, 2006
Co. Monaghan - Griffiths Valuations: OLIVERs The OLIVERs who were in the linen industry held a number of leases in Monaghan from the mid-1700s until the mid-1800s. This chart helps to situate some of the mid-1800s OLIVERs. July 1, 2009
FAMILY BASED TABLES
 
BAILIE  
BAILIE Prerog will records & records from Armagh These records include many BAILIE names that will not necessarily connect to our family, but given the family's known mobility, it is hard to rule any out. January 12, 2009
BAILIE - A selection of will abstracts January 12, 2009
BAILIE-Kane Graveyard transcriptions January 12, 2009
BRADFORD  
Bradford Family Newsclippings These notes on newsclippings give a sense of the sweep of events in the lives of the BRADFORDs who lived in County Louth 1850-1895. September 18, 2008
Bradford Will Probates These probates are all tied in to the BRADFORDs of Co. Louth (with also a few from Monagahan). September 18, 2008
Bradford Coulter & Cavananore Timeline The connections of the COULTERs and BRADFORDS with Cavananore begin in the late 1600s and carry through to the early 20th Century.Updated. November 3, 2008
September 1, 2009
Bradford Freeholder Records I have footnoted known BRADFORDs and other names with a focus on the BRADFORDs of County Louth who appear in Freeholder Records. BRADFORDs from Co. Armagh & Co. Down are also included. PRONI's freeholders records come from a variety of sources. They include registers of those who had registered to vote (excluding all those whose land status prohibited them from voting) as well as poll books which showed the lists of voters and who they voted for. September 29, 2008
COULTER  
Coulter, Bradford & Cavananore Timeline The connections of the COULTERs and BRADFORDS with Cavananore begin in the late 1600s and carry through to the early 20th Century.Updated. November 3, 2008
September 1, 2009
Coulter Will Probates These will probates are all tied in to the COULTER families of Co. Louth - with some tendrils into Co. Armagh. November 12, 2008
Coulter - Early Armagh Probates Only a few of these COULTERs in the earlier Armagh Probate records are known to be connected to our family. A few more are likely to be. Others likely not. November 27, 2008
COULTERs and Creggan Church Records Significantly, I can make no matches to our family tree for any of the COULTERs mentioned in the parts of the Parish Register which are available for Creggan Church. They are connected in other Creggan Church records (also included here). November 27, 2008
COULTERs & Dundalk Church of Ireland Records This is a work in progress. The known names tie into the COULTERs of Carnbeg, descendants of Alexander COULTER. SEE: Descendants of Alexander COULTER November 28, 2008
COLTER & COULTER records in Griffiths Valuation for Co. Louth This list of COLTER and COULTER holdings has been annotated with the best of what I know to date November 29, 2008
Coulter Freeholder Records I have annotated these with what I currently know. I should be able to add more in a few months time. December 6, 2008
Coulters in the 1796 Flaxgrower records I have annotated this table with footnotes that indicate where we might profitably look next in terms of seeking connections to the known family tree and at the same time to connect with what has been learned from other tables. There is still a lot more to learn. As always December 12, 2008
JACKSON See also: Fishing for JACKSONs  
Jackson Freemen of Dublin NOTE: This is merely the start of a work in progress - trying to learn more about these men and who their families may have been. I am particularly interested in the ones with Quaker links. January 26, 2010
McCULLAGH  
McCullagh Freeholders - mostly Armagh This chart includes most, but likely not all, of the McCULLAGH references in PRONI Freeholder records, footnoted with a few other related bits and with the parishes (where known) of the townlands added in. It is sorted by parish. July 4, 2009
July 5, 2009
McCullagh Armagh Probates This list of Armagh probates includes some, but not likely all, of the Armagh probates of M'CULLA, McCULLAGH & McCULLOUGH. July 4, 2009
OLIVER  
OLIVER Family. This page inculdes a range of tables of property records as well as births, marriages and deaths and other tables of interest re: OLIVERs. November 23, 2006
PIPPARD  
PIPPARDs of County Louth Deeds. This page is not meant to be an exhaustive summary of all deeds pertaining to the PIPPARDs of County Louth. It only includes the ones that I have found as part of exploring JACKSON-PIPPARD connections as well as ones that can be found on Nick Reddan’s excellent site.  As in all of this work, we are all standing on the shoulders of others.
