This is a remarkable piece of work pieced together by Wendy Jack. It goes without saying in any work undertaken by Wendy that the scholarship is impeccable. The sources for each fact are clearly identified in the end-notes.

The BARTLEY family included many military men, doctors and clergy. Their commitments and fortunes took them all over the world and their stories reveal a family-sized echo of what was happening on a larger scale with the great outwash of the British Empire. In this first section, there is considerable detail on Walter Tyler BARTLEY (see #47) who was killed in action in 1846 at the Battle of Sobraon in India. Also there is fascinating detail on Rev. John COULTER (see #31) who was influential in the movement to merge the two secessionist synods of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and was also active in the Tenant League movement.

This webpage is the first of five detailing the nine generations of the BARTLEY family of Lossitt, Co. Monaghan, Ireland. More will be added as we learn it.

[lxxxv]   Walter was killed in action on 10 February 1846 in the Battle of Sobraon in India. [lxxxvi]   This battle was the decisive engagement of the First Sikh War (1845-1846).  During his reign from 1801-1839, the Maharaja Ranjit Singh had built up the Sikh state in the Punjab to a formidable force, with an army around 100000 strong.  After his death, a series of revolutions and assassinations led to the breakdown of government and placed his youngest son as ruler, with the boy's mother named as regent.  However, the real power in the state lay with the army.  The turbulent conditions led to a build-up of British troops on the border.  On 11 December 1845, a Sikh force of more than 60000 men crossed the Sutlej River and attacked British troops at Firozpur.  Two days later, Lord Hardinge (the Governor-General of India) declared war on the Sikh state. During the following three months, four bloody and hard-fought battles occurred, the final one, the Battle of Sobraon, was a decisive British victory, with more than 10000 Sikhs killed, and over 2300 British casualties. A series of peace treaties signed in March 1846 saw territory ceded to the British, the reduction of the Sikh forces to 20000 infantry and 12000 cavalry, and the installation of Sir Henry Lawrence as British Resident in Lahore.  Peace in the region was short-lived. Another outbreak of hostilities in 1848-1849 resulted in further British victories and the annexation of the Punjab.

       31.  John COULTER was born in 1796. [cxx]   John grew up in the Ballabay area of Co Monaghan, Ireland. He was a member of the Derryvalley Presbyterian Congregation, at that time a Secesssion congregation.  In 1813 he was examined and accepted to study for the secessionist ministry under John Rodgers, who had established a theological school at Cahans.  From 1817, John also studied at Glasgow, Scotland, where he received an MA.  He was licensed on 9 July 1818, and in 1820 was ordained minister of Gilnahirk Congregation in the east of Belfast, where he ministered for 57 years.

As was the case with the mother church in Scotland, Presbyterianism in Ireland was fraught with schism.  By the end of the eighteenth century, there were three synods in Ireland: the Synod of Ulster, and two secessionist synods, Burgher and Anti-Burgher.  The year of John's licensing saw the union of the two secessionist synods, and during the early decades of his ministry there was a growing mood towards the union of the Secession and Ulster Synods.  John was influential in this movement; during the 1830s he addressed prayer meetings of students in Belfast and urged "talk of union, make it the subject of prayer".  In 1839, he proposed that in the event of union, the combined synod body should be called "The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland".  His dream became reality on 10 June 1840 when, following agreement at separate meetings of the two synods to accept the proposed terms of union, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland was formed.

John also envisioned the development of "a co-operating chain of Presbyterian Churches all over the world", but it was not until 1875 that this dream also came to fruition with the formation of the Alliance of Reformed Churches throughout the World Holding to the Presbyterian System (now known as the World Alliance of Reformed Churches).  In 1842, John was honoured with a DD from America, and in 1851 he was elected Moderator of the General Assembly which he had helped to bring into being. His appointment was controversial because of John's involvement in the Tenant League movement.

       John retired in 1860, but maintained his association with the Gilnahirk congregation and continued preaching until a few years before his death. [cxxi]

       John married Isabella GORDON .  Isabella was born circa 1798. [cxxii]   Isabella died 26 February 1858. [cxxiii]   She was buried in the Gilnahirk Presbyterian Graveyard in Gilnahirk, Parish of Knockbreda, Co Down, Ireland. [cxxiv]   John died 26 May 1877. [cxxv]   He was buried in the Gilnahirk Presbyterian Graveyard in Gilnahirk, Parish of Knockbreda, Co Down, Ireland. [cxxvi]   In a graveside address, Prof John Rogers described John COULTER as being "descended from an old and honoured house in Co Monaghan", [cxxvii] and his obituary in The Witness, 1 June 1877, called him "one of the most accomplished ministers of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland". John COULTER and Isabella GORDON had the following children:

    +    58    i.    Eliza Jane COULTER was born circa 1834 [cxxviii] and died 9 March 1894. [cxxix]

[cxxxiii]   He died of a fever while on his way home to visit his family.  His memory is perpetuated by a scholarship in the Medical School of the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast.

       32.  George Bartley COULTER was born in 1806. [cxxxiv]   Like his elder brother, George became a Presbyterian minister, but chose a different course of study. After being accepted as a student for the ministry on 1 November 1826, he studied at Old College, Belfast and gained his General Certificate in 1831.  He was licensed by Monaghan Secession Presbytery in 1833, and the following year was ordained at Frankford (Second Castleblayney) on 26 August.  He served there until his death.  George continued the Castleblayney classical academy, which had been established by his predecessor David Longmoor, and proved an effective teacher. [cxxxv] George married Jane SMITH in 1836. [cxxxvi]   She was the daughter of John SMITH of Castleblayney, Co Monaghan, Ireland . George died 31 December 1855.
