NOTE: I have transcribed this using voice recognition, and even though I have trolled through it looking for errors, this does not mean that the following transcription is error free. It is the best that I can do at this time – given other calls on my time. I have yet to run down information on many of the names – but have left room in footnotes to add it later.

 There must be agreements made between Charles COULTER and Samuel MOFFITT that I do not yet have.
 Charles COULTER. He is the son of James COULTER and brother of Henry COULTER. Other deeds connect him to Annaghavacky, which is also called Roachdale. There are earlier deeds that also shed light on the family connections (1734)
