 Leonard DOBBIN- I am still working on the OLIVER-DOBBIN lineage. I suspect that he is the one who was considered to be a pioneer of Town planning and who was responsible for the building of the Linen Hall where the linen merchants of the time displayed their wares. He also built Dobbin Street and his Johnston designed residence on the site of St. Patrick’s first church later became the Bank of Ireland and is now St. Patrick’s Fold. Dobbin’s Walks, a park donated to the city by Leonard Dobbin, later became known as Dobbin’s Folly.
 William OLIVER – this may be the brother of Benjamin OLIVER. If so, his wife was Elizabeth BALLYNTINE and he had a son, William. He died before 1845 and was possibly the William OLIVER who owned scrutching mills at Laragh.
 John PRINGLE, a British landowner.
 James OLIVER. A will of Benjamin OLIVER mentions a brother called “James” although other sources have him with only two brothers, William and Joseph.
 Enagh is a townland of 217 acres in the Parish of Lisnadill.
 Alexander DOBBIN – another DOBBIN without links that I can be sure of.
 Aghavilly is the townland where Hugh EDGAR resided
 Killynure was the home of Benjamin OLIVER, then his daughter Elizabeth OLIVER who married David JACKSON, then their daughter Elizabeth JACKSON who married Thompson BROWN.
 Michael LYNCH?
 CORY – I wonder if I have missed a first or a last name here in my transcription.
 Arthur HUGHES?
 William OLIVER is possibly the William OLIVER who is the brother of Benjamin OLIVER.
 Michael McGEE?
 Benjamin OLIVER (d. July 1, 1831, when his youngest children had yet to reach majority)
 Ennislare is a townland of 262 acres in the Parish of Lisnadill.
 Robert McADAMS?
 William CARSON?
 Maghery is a townland of 324 acres in the Parish of Tartaraghan, CO. Armagh. It was also the home of the MENARY family.
