[2] 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

[3] Samuel COULTER (b abt 1690) of Cavananore father of 7 children:Andrew, Elizabeth, Mary, Nathanial, Susanna, John and Barbara. Most likely a brother of Charles, William and John COULTER. It is also possible that he was the Samuel COULTER (1700-1760) who according to noted in the Dundalk library - "died without issue". Those notes and the same assumption in "A Man who would speak of Plants" may be erroneous. No sources are cited for this assertion. If he was, this would make him a son of Thomas COULTER and Anne MAFFETT and would go a long way to explaining the interplay between the two branches of the family over the lands of Cavananore and Carnbeg.

[4] John COULTER. There is a brother of Samuel COULTER names John – but he seems to be associated with Carrickistuck. Samuel’s son, John COULTER (d.1774) is more likely here since his wife’s will (Martha COWEN) puts her at Cavananore.

[5] Cavananore, Parish of Creggan SEE:

[6] Nathaniel COULTER son of Samuel COULTER of Cavananore. He married and had a daughter, Mary SOURCE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/1775_Will_of_Andrew_Coulter.htm

[7] Andrew COULTER(died bet aug 27 1775-December 1775 (dates when his will was written and then probated). He was a  son of Samuel COULTER of Cavananore. He was a church warden at Creggan Church in 1749. SOURCE: Creggan Local History Society 1989 Vol 1-No.3

[8] 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.

[9] 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.

[10] Cornelius M’LAUGHLIN of Drogheda, clerk to the said George PIPPARD. Just as the PIPPARD-JACKSON connections are interesting, so is the name M’LAUGHLIN since the George JACKSON (1718-1782) who is the earliest known member of our family tree married a Margaret O’LAUGHLIN in 1743.

[11] William PARRY. Deputy Registrar.
