1779 Oct 8


McCLELLAND-BARTLEY 27th Aug 1793 at 10 forenoon.



  • There were likely other business and familial relationships between the McCLELLANDs (aka McCLELAN aka McCLELLAN...). For example, in 1740, a Jane McCLELLAN married a Robert BARTLEY. SOURCE: Clogher Marriage records.
  • The BARTLEY family (also subject to several variant spellings) was also a family that generated a significant number of business and family connections with the core family tree that I am pursuing (relations of Sir Thomas JACKSON).SEE: file:///C:/Users/Sharon/Documents/Webstuff/theSilverBowl2/familytree/BartleyTree_1-4.htm


To the register appointed by act of Parliament for Registry of Deeds wills and so forth. A Memorial of articles of agreement bearing date the eighth day of October 1779 and made and concluded upon by and between Francis McCLELLAND[1] of the town and County of Monaghan and Archibald McCLELLAND[2] of [Annamacneill[3]?] in the said County of the one part and Hugh BARTLEY[4] of Lossett[5] in the said County of Monaghan of the other part which by the said Francis McCLELLAND and Archibald McCLELLAND for the consideration of £20 did grant bargain sell and confirm unto the said Hugh BARTLEY for and during the natural life of Esther BARTLEY[6] wife of the said Hugh BARTLEY one annuity or yearly rent charge of 2 pounds five shillings and sixpence sterling to be issued and payable and of that part of the lands [Annamacneill?] in the County of Monaghan devised by Francis McCLELLAND late of [Annamacneil] in the County of Monaghan deceased by his last will to the said Francis McCLELLAND the same to be paid by two even and equal payments on every first day of November and first day of May in the said deed there is a clause of distraining in case of the nonpayment of said annuity and is witnessed by James JOHNSTON[7] of the city of Dublin gent attorney and Joseph McCLELLAND[8] of Corlay[9] in the County of Monaghan farmer and this Memorial is also witnessed by the said Joseph McCLELLAND and James LUKEY[10] of the town and County of Monaghan attorneys Hugh BARTLEY. [Seal] Signed and sealed in presence of Joseph McCLELLAND James LUKEY the above named Joseph McCLELLAND aged 30 years and upwards maketh oath and saith he is a subscribing witness to the deed whereof the above is a Memorial and saw the same perfected by the perfecting parties thereto and is also subscribing witness to this Memorial and saw the same signed and sealed duly by the said Hugh BARTLEY and saith the name Joseph McCLELLAND subscribed as a witness to said deed and Memorial is this deponent’s proper name and hand writing. Joseph McCLELLAND sworn before me at Monaghan in the city of Monaghan on the 12th day of August 1793 by virtue of a commission to me directed for taking affidavits and I know the deponent. John HUMPHREYS[11].

[1] Francis McCLELLAND. I don’t know how he fits in.

·         NOTE: In 1744, a Francis McCLELAN married a Grizel CAMPBELL. SOURCE: Clogher Marriage Bonds.

·         In 1716, a Robert BARTLEY married a Jane McCLELLAND. Clogher.

[2] Archibald McCLELLAND

[3] Annamacneill is a townland in the Parish of Tullycorbet. I am not sure if this is it. The word in the Memorial looked like “Annamcneol”, but there is a significant McCLELLAND presence in the townland still by the time of Griffiths, hence my hunch..

[4] Hugh BARTLEY d. 1803. Son of George BARTLEY & Margaret ORR

[5] Lossett. There are four townlands named Lossett. Going by BARTLEY holdings registered at the time of Griffiths (James BARTLEY & Margaret BARTLEY), I would suspect the Paris of Kilmore, Co. Monaghan is it.

[6] Esther BARTLEY. I suspect that I have an error in the family tree as it stands right now as I have the wife of Hugh BARTLEY to be Agnes WILSON. There is a reference in 1791 in DEED 440 473 284746 to Agnes BARTLEY otherwise WILSON. NOTE: I am adding Esther as a wife in the family tree and will leave Agnes where she is until I learn more. Agnes was possibly a half sister of Hugh BARTLEY, since his mother was first married to Alexander WILSON.

[7] James JOHNSTON

[8] Joseph McCLELLAND

[9] Corlay aka Corlea, Parish of Tullycorbet, Co. Monaghan

[10] James LUKEY
