They were called Ulstermen. Orangemen were the name for a certain
section who began a century later.
this was a group of originally Anglicans who wanted to suppress

1716 seems a mite early for the Methodists - Wesley didn't start his
preaching ministry until 1742.
As Baptists do not, by definition, baptize children I would be
surprised if they had a baptism record there.
They were most likely Established Church. If you could identify a
