1796 COULTERs in Flaxgrowers 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
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
Coulters of Skyhill This very short stub of a tree will likely tie into one of the first two COULTER trees. December 8, 2008
Coulters of Silverbridge This short tree likely shares ancestors with one or both of the first two trees. Why this family left Ireland for England in the first place, is not known. According to family lore, they returned during WWI in order to protect a son from having to serve in the military. December 8, 2008
Coulter family tree connected to Sir Thomas JACKSON This COULTER family tree is directly connected into my known family. It is possible that the “UNNAMED COULTER at the start of this tree is a son of the Joseph COULTER highlighted in tree preceding this one. If there are other descendants of this Joseph COULTER, it could also lead us to knowing where various other stray COULTERs and COULTER trees belong. December 8, 2008

COULTERs in Dundalk Church of Ireland Records This is a work in progress. The known names tie into the COULTERs of Carnbeg, descendants of Alexander COULTER. November 28, 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 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
Descendants of Alexander COULTER This COULTER family tree is the one connected with the famed botanist, Thomas COULTER of Carnbeg. I suspect that the people in this tree are linked to the COULTERs of Cavananore, but since we are still missing some of the connecting bits of data - I can't prove this yet. November 27, 2008

Bradford family of Co. Louth The BRADFORDs of Co. Louth that connect to the family tree of Sir Thomas JACKSON reach back to the early 1700s. At this stage, I have more questions than answers. September 30, 2008
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
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. September 24, 2008
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
Bradford 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 19, 2008
Bradford Family Will Probates These probates are all tied in to the BRADFORDs of Co. Louth (with also a few from Monagahan). September 18, 2008
1865 July 20th & September 12th These two news clippings concern the Thomas BRADFORD (1797-1872) of Carnbeg who married Margaret WALLACE (1811-1885). They had twelve known children. In his will probate, he left an estate valued at £9000. OTHER NAMES: M'CLINTOCK. September 17, 2008

PLACES: Cavanore AKA Cavananore, parish of Creggan, Co. Louth; Ravensdale, Parish of Ballymascanlan, Co. Louth. September 3, 2008
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. September 3, 2008
1792 December 26 NAMES: Samuel COULTER(1755-1801) of Carnbeg; Anne DICKIE (1772-1803); Robert DICKIE of Clonaleenan. This is the marriage agreement between Samuel COULTER and Anne DICKIE daughter of Robert DICKIE. August 26, 2008
Ancestry of Thompson BROWNE Working backwards from the pretty well known to the less thoroughly known and then back in time to utter darkness, here goes. I have a suspicion that my great-grandfather Thompson BROWN[E] (1837-1915) may be related to Daniel Gunn BROWNE (1808-1892) who was an uncle by marriage of Thompson BROWN’s wife, Elizabeth JACKSON. By following the trail back, I hope to either prove or disprove this notion. All help will be appreciated. August 26, 2008
1871 documents This shows links between the BROWN family of Killynure and the BRADFORD and DONALDSONs of Co. Louth. Also, the property of Kiltybawn figures in the records of these leases which it seems became the home of Elizabeth Johanna DONALDSON nee JACKSON. Footnotes updated. August 26, 2008
Freeduff Church Register I have added more records to the Freeduff Presbyterian Church, Parish of Creggan, Co. Armagh BMDs. Several BROWNs. August 26, 2008
1817 August 1 - Indenture of Marriage I am posting this in spite of my ignorance about exactly who is who. Hopefully, others can help. NAMES: William POOLER of Newry; Mary COULTER of Dowdalshill; Thomas COULTER of Dublin; Samuel COULTER of Carnbeg; Joseph COULTER late of Dowdallshill; William NELSON, DD.; James DICKIE. August 23, 2008
1803 January 20th Indenture NAMES: Robert Earl of Roden; Joseph COULTER of Dowdallshill; James DICKIE of Carrickastuck; Joseph DICKIE of Clonaleenan; Lennox BIGGER of Richmond House; Thomas COULTER (1893-1843) famed botanist; Joseph COULTER (1795-1812); Samuel COULTER (1799-1840); Samuel COULTER of Carnbeg (1755-1801) OTHER TOWNLANDS: Carnmore; Glebe; Jeffries Land (Lisdoo); Sportsmans Hall. August 23, 2008
Four Carnbeg Maps 1737-1900 Here are four maps connected to Carnbeg, Parish of Dundalk, Co. Louth which connect to various COULTER family deeds that I am currently working on. August 22, 2008
1754 June 6 Indenture These are notes of the earliest indenture that I have connected to the lands of Carnbeg, Co. Louth and the COULTER family. NAMES: James HARRISON, Viscount of Limerick; Samuel COULTER, William McCULLOUGH; Thomas READ; Isaac READ; Joseph BOARDMAN; Richard VINCENT; David JOHNSTON. In the footnotes are the names of Anne DICKIE, Jane DAVIDSON and Thomas COULTER. August 22, 2008
Browne, John (died 1588) descendants This is a draft tree and likely contains several errors needing the benefit of input from many careful readers (and I will make changes when notified). It is also huge - running to close to 30 pages. It incorporates the BROWNEs of Westport, Co. Mayo as well as the BROWNEs of Janeville, Co. Down. This detailed tree would not be anywhere near as complete were it not for the contributions of many kind souls. Deirdre McEvoy, Wendy Jack and William Stranney deserve special mention. NOTE: The footnotes are worth reading for the stories they contain. August 20, 2008
BROWNE, Robert (mid-late 1300s) descendants A family story from about a 100 years ago says that our BROWNE family is connected by ancestry to the BROWNEs of Sligo. In turn, the family history of the BROWNEs of Sligo (the Westport House BROWNEs) alleges that they connect back to the Montague BROWNEs of Cowdray. My conundrum is the issue of John BROWNE (d. 1588) who is the 11th entry in the 5th (and last) generation of this tree. (NOTE: I will pick up his descendants in a tree focusing on the BROWNEs of Sligo.) How John BROWNE fits into the MONTAGUE line is uncertain. Although I have him (for the moment) as a child of Anthony BROWNE, it is also possible that he was a child of Sir George BROWNE, the older brother of Anthony. August 20, 2008
BROWNE family connections from Cowdray, Sligo & Janeville This is only an outline tree, but even at that it runs to six pages or more. It contains the most up-to-date names and dates for the BROWNE family of Janeville, Co. Down, The Sligo BROWNEs of Westport, Co. Mayo and the Montague BROWNEs going back to the early 1400s. Not all my sources are necessarily reliable, but I have cross-referenced to the best of my ability and will fix any errors as soon as I know of them (help is always appreciated). The dates, where they differ, supercede the dates in the two trees beneath which have yet to be updated. August 11, 2008
August 20, 2008
1880 March 18 Auction of Drummuck & Ednafirkin NAMES: John Wallace McCULLAGH (1840-1894); Joseph DICKIE; James McCULLAGH (d. 1865); Thomas Coulter DICKIE (1837-1908); Eliza McCULLAGH nee WALLACE (1809-1895); Thomas McCULLAGH (1843-1895); James McCULLAGH (d. 1892);Henry Aitkens Newell AITKENS; James HAMILTON; Thomas HAMILTON; David LYSTER; William BROWN; James BROWN.

NAMES: Thomas McCULLAGH (1793-1877); Andrew Bradford McCULLAGH (1842-1897); James McCULLAGH (-1913); Mary REID nee McCULLAGH (1840-1919); Rev. Wm REID (1829-1906); Sarah WHITESIDE nee McCULLAGH; Thomas McCULLAGH (1854-1920); Matthew McAuley RUTHERFORD ( 1845-1926); Samuel McCLEAVE; George Hill SMITH. TOWNLANDS: Derrivalley AKA Derryvalley; Dromalt AKA Drumalt; Ganemoe possibly Garranroe; Possy AKA probably Tossy; Ballibay AKA Ballybay. July 2, 2008
1845 Archibald BROWNE will This will represents my first steps in trying to situate some of the Ballybay BROWNE connections to the rest of the family tree. Of interest, is another document that I will soon transcribe involving the sale of lands in Ednafirkin in 1880 relating to the estate of John Wallace McCULLAGH. It mentions a William and a James BROWN as tenants adjacent to the McCULLAGH holdings at Ednafirkin.NAMES: Archibald BROWNE and his children: William, John, Archibald, Benjamin, Robert, Samuel and Eliza Jane; Witnesses John McCLATCHIE & William JAMIESON. TOWNLANDS: Ednafirkin, Co. Monaghan; Tullywalter AKA Tullywaltry, Co. Cavan & Drumcondia, Co. Cavan July 2, 2008
1824 Pigotts Directory - listings from Armagh 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
Bradshaws 1819 Directory for 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.

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. June 16, 2008
