[1] John KANE of Tyrearly  A Farmer.

[2] Tyrearly AKA Tirearly is a townland in the Parish of Lisnadill on the western side of a clustering of townlands that all involve OLIVER leases

[3] William OLIVER of Mullinture, Farmer. He is probably the bachelor who died in 1779 and whose profession was that of linen draper (as well as farmer). NOTE: A will probate is what I am using to make this link since the name and place match up. According to Deed 375-10-247623, he died a bachelor. He was a brother of Mary who married DOBBIN, John of Tullymore & Andrew of Newtownhamilton.

[4] Mullinture, Parish of  Eglish., Co. Armagh.

[5] James, Earl of Charlemount.

[6] Alexander KANE second son of John KANE

[7] George COCHRAN son of  William COCHRAN the younger.

[8] William COCHRAN the younger (presumably son of William COCHRAN)

[9] Joseph OLIVER, linen merchant of Co. Armagh – is it possible that he the Joseph OLIVER of Ballynahonebeg and therefore possibly also a brother of David of Ballyrea? He could also be a son of John OLIVER of Tullymore, and therefore a nephew of William OLIVER of Mullinture.

[10] John MOSSON, Merchant of Town & County Armagh. He witnessed other deeds: 1781, Nov 7 & 1785, Aug 10.

[11] George McCULLAGH. A George McCULLAGH married a Margaret OLIVER in 1750. This may be the same one. SOURCE: National Archives 2007 notes on Armagh Marriages. NOTE: his connection to the linen trade. NOTE: An OLIVER-McCULLAGH deed that I noted in the townland index of 1739-1820 DEED: 543-105-357205 cannot be found under that number. TO DO: recheck the name index.

[12] William SCOTT It is of interest that LDS has a record of a William SCOTT who married an Isabella OLIVER in the Presbyterian Church of Drumbo, County Down. in 1720. Worth Checking out! A William SCOTT was also one of the Derry fighters in 1689 from Co. Monaghan. Both a William & a John SCOTT are mentioned in a 1718 DEED: 38-403-24787. A John SCOTT of Umgola is mentioned in a 1796  DEED: 510-33-328019 concerning OLIVERs as well as a 1797 DEED: 506-95-328017.
