[1] Rt. Hon John Lord BELLEW (1702-1770). He came from an old Anglo-Norman family and succeeded to the title March 22, 1714/1715. SOURCE: http://thepeerage.com/p3309.htm#i33089

[2] Charles COULTER of Carrickstuck. I believe this to be the Charles COULTER (?-bef 1776 ) who was deceased before 1776 Dec 4 SOURCE: Deed: 323 232 213562. I also suspect that he was a brother of Samuel COULTER (abt 1690-?) of Cavananore and of William and John COULTER – the latter two were also deceased before 1776. Some evidence lead me to think that he may have married Mary McEVERS before 1735 (son James mentioned) – but I will be revisiting this as I learn more.  SOURCE: DEED: 134 179 90509. And DEED: 80 473 56629

[3] William COULTER of Carrickstuck. I believe he was a brother of Charles COULTER (?-bef 1776 ), Samuel COULTER (abt 1690-?) of Cavananore and John COULTER.

[4] John COULTER I believe he was a brother of Charles COULTER (?-bef 1776 ), Samuel COULTER (abt 1690-?) of Cavananore and William COULTER.

[5] Carrickastuck, a townland of 229 acres in the Parish of Phillipstown, Co. Louth.

[6] James COULTER (b bef 1735), son of Charles COULTER of Carrickastuck & Mary McEVERS.

[7] George PIPPARD of Drogheda merchant. Going from Deeds evidence, he would seem to be the eldest son of a Christopher PIPPARD of Drogheda and a brother of Henry PIPPARD. What is interesting in his appearance here in terms of the family story is that there are a number of JACKSON-PIPPARD Connections.: PIPPARD mentions in Deeds.

[8] Drogheda - a seaport, borough, and market-town, and a county of itself, locally in the county of LOUTH, and province of LEINSTER, 57 miles (S by W.) from Belfast, and 23 (N.) SOURCE: A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland, Samuel Lewis.http://www.libraryireland.com/topog/d3.php

. NOTE: The COULTER-Drogheda connection is interesting. In 1808,there was a letter from George Coulter at Drogheda to [John Foster] reminding him of the support he gave Colonel Foster at the last election. He is the only Protestant wool draper in Drogheda, and was assured by Colonel Foster that if his business suffered as a result of the election he would be provided for. He was promised a gaugership, but nothing more has come of this. SOURCE: PRONI: D562/12555.
