1776 Dec 4
DEED: 323 232 213562
Notes from my 2009 diary – cobbled together from two versions.
Between John COULTER of Carickistook, Co. Louth, farmer of the one part & Wm POLLOCK of Carrickistook aforesaid farmer of the other part, reciting that Charles COULTER, Wm. COULTER & John COULTER had taken a lease from the late Lord BELLEW bearing date the 4th day March 1734 of the said lands of Carrickistook … 136A… rent of £7.7.6 for lives of Wm. COULTER, John COULTER and James COULTER, son of Charles COULTER and that the said Charles COULTER & Wm COULTER are since dead and that said lands by the said Lord BELLEW’s lease fell to the survivor or longest liver of the said three [?] & [?] that the said John COULTER who is the survivor … did demise unto William BELLEW 1/3 part of the lands of Carrickistook then in the actual possession of the said William POLLOCK at the yearly rent of £16.2.6 … … lives of John COULTER, James COULTER & Robert BRANNAN jr. of Longfield [?] Co. Monaghan … yearly rent to pay to Robert BRANNAN jr. of Longfield [?] Co. Monaghan & Catherine COULTER. WITNESS: William POLLOCK; Michael MOLONY.
 John COULTER He was a brother of Samuel, Charles, and William. Their parents are as yet unknown. A link to the COULTERs of Lisnawooley is likely. Alexander COULTER (1637-1721/22) came over from Scotland. He had two known sons. The descendents of Thomas are well known. The story of the other son, Joseph COULTER, is still a mystery to me. He had a grandson whose name is unknown, and who was born 1755.
 Carrickastuck, a townland of 229 acres in the Parish of Phillipstown, Co. Louth.
 Wm POLLOCK of Carrickistook farmer
 Charles COULTER 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. He may have married Mary McEVERS before 1735 (son James mentioned). I will revisit this as I learn more. SOURCE: DEED: 134 179 90509. And DEED: 80 473 56629
 Wm. COULTER (?-bef 1776) brother of the above Charles COULTER.
 John COULTER (?-bef 1776) brother of the above Charles COULTER.
 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
I suspect this is the Deed: 82 179 57452 that was registered on 1734 Mar 11
 In another section of my notes I have the acreage as 135 acres and the rent as £57.7.6. I suspect that is more likely to be correct.
 James COULTER, son of Charles COULTER (?-bef Dec. 1776)
 Robert BRANNAN jr. of Longfield, Co. Monaghan
 Longfield, Co. Monaghan. The mention of this townland is interesting in that it appears again in a DEED dated 1851 April 28: Andrew HAMILTON of Longfield in the County of Monaghan farmer
 Catherine COULTER NOTE: I can’t place her. In another version of my notes relating to this deed, I have “pay £3 yearly to Catherine COULTER”.
