NOW the above named Charles MOORE maketh oath and saith he is a subscribing witness to the deed of which the above [etc. etc.] sworn before me this 22nd day of October 1829.

[1] David LESLIE (aft 1803-?) son of Nathanial LESLIE & Martha OLIVER.

[2] Sallyvale SOURCE: Breakey Memoirs, Book I p 12: It was Captain Johnstone who gave the house its present name.  Isaiah Breakey called it Sallyvale, others Milford, and people this side Greenvale. NOTE: I don’t know which townland this is in. Interestingly, there was a news report of a death of another person whose family name is also connected to OLIVER family deeds in the 1700s (Jan 31, 1843) On the 19th instant, at Sallyvale, near Armagh, MICHAEL PRINGLE, Esq.

[3] Sarah McCLELLAND

[4] John McCLELLAND. I don’t know who he is, but there is a reference to a John & and a James McCLELLAND of Tandragee. SEE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/Miscellaneous_Property/1827SettlementMCLELLAND_ACBRADFORD.htm

[5] Millmore aka Moyle More, Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan.

[6] Millbeg. Aka Moyle Beg , Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan. Interestingly (given other family connections), PRONI has a will abstract for an Alexander McCREERY: Administration (with the Will) of the personal estate of Alexander M'Creery late of Derry County Monaghan Farmer who died 17 June 1898 granted at Armagh to Robert M'Creery of Millbeg said County Farmer the Brother.

[7] Derry, Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan (given the context, I assume it to be this townland named Derry – there are others)

[8] There is also a Mullinary in the Parish of Magheross, Co. Monaghan, but given the description of the Glebe, I hope I am correct in surmising that it is in the Parish of Aghnamullen

[9] Mullinary Glebe, Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan

[10] Edenbrone, Parish of Agnamullen, Co. Monaghan

[11] Corkeeran, Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan.

[12] Tamlat, Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan.

[13] [Corakill?]

[14] William and Robert FORSYTH

[15] David JOHNSTON

[16] Isaiah OLIVER (1787-1833), son of Thomas OLIVER and Margaret McCLELLAND. His presence on this deed is significant since we cannot yet link his family into the larger OLIVER line which includes David LESLIE.

[17] Derryroosk, Parish of Aghnamullen, Co. Monaghan

[18] Charles MOORE
