[1] Rt. Hon John Lord BELLEW. 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] James DICKIE (1700-1747) of Clonaleenan. He was also known as Samuel James DICKIE and was married to Mary BAILEY, sister of John BAILIE SOURCE: STATEMENT OF JOHN DICKIE OF CASINO: [Also called James] Samuel Dickie Of Clonaleenan died March 1747 aged 47 years. He was married to Mary Bailey, sister of John Bailey of Clonaleenan. She died 5th Jan. 1762 aged 60 years. Her brother John died Mar 11 1777 - aged 85 years. The above-named James Dickie and Mary his wife had a son called Robert [Bob] Dickie who married a Miss Reid. Their children were James - Carrickastuck; Robert Roachdale; John Thomas Clonaleenan; Joseph who died abroad; Anne married Colter (whose sister was married to Col. Gracey of Ballytweed, Downpatrick) Mary died unmarried, Betty died unmarried.

[3] John BAILIE (d. aft 1773) of Clonaleenan, husband of Dorothy SMITH.

[4] Clonaleenan, Parish of Creggan, Co. Louth. 311 acres. It is bounded by Barronstown to the east, Carrickastuck and Annaghvacky to the north, Shanmullagh to the west and Derryfalone to the south (amongst others).

[5] David BAILIE. There are five deeds I have found so far that mention David BAILIE:

·        DEED: 79-389-56530. In this deed he is referred to as the second son of John BAILIE of Clonaleenan.

·        DEED: 324-364-216473. Dated Feb 2 1774 and also includes a mention of John BAILIE jr and Clonaleenan.

·         DEED: 332-274-224474. Dated Oct 1 1779 describes a John BAILIE as brother to David BAILIE of Clonaleenan.

·        DEED: 332-386-225119. Dated Oct 2, 1780 mentions the life of David BAILIE in conjunction with lands of Carrickistuck and Annaghvackey.

·        DEED: 355-465-241686. In this deed he is referred to as the second son of John BAILIE of Clonaleenan.

[6] 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.

[7] 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.

[8] William PARRY, Deputy Registrar.
