Literature of interest to Ulster-Scots
Two new genealogical source books are available online that might
interest readers of The Ulster-Scot.
The books are entitled 'Scots-Irish Origins', c.1600-1800AD,
Genealogical Gleanings of the Scots-Irish from Co Londonderry. Volume
One focuses on the parish of
Magilligan: Containing 386 distinct surnames, it has the following
sources: Civil Survey, 1654-56; Pender's Census, 1659; 1663 Hearth Money
Roll; 1666 Muster Roll; 1740 Protestant Householders' returns; a
transcript of Magilligan (Tamlaghtard) Church of Ireland registers,
Baptisms 1748-1764, Marriages 1747-1753 & Burials 1747-1776; 1796 Flax
Lists; Magilligan baptisms from Ballykelly Presbyterian register,
1699-1710; Magilligan marriages from Ballykelly Presbyterian register,
There are also various rentals from Gage Estate (1768 & 1800), Bacon
Estate (1785 & 1795); McNeill estate (1795); Hervey-Bruce estate
(c.1800); Will indexes; extant will extracts for Magilligan from Public
Record Office Northern Ireland; Gravestone Inscripti famous robber of
the 'Murder-Hole Road.
Volume 2 focuses on the 'Plantation of Londonderry', 1600-1670: there is
a short history of the Plantation focussing on the 12 London Company
estates. There is a transcript of the 1630 Muster Roll for the city and
county of Londonderry, some depositions from the 1641 Rebellion, and
also the Summonister (Court) Records for Co Londonderry 1611-1670, all
unique sources transcribed for the first time. There are 1,727 different
surnames in this volume alone!
Both books are available at: http://www.ulsterheritage.com/ebooks.htm
They are downloadable for a modest fee (9.95 dollars and £10.95
respectively), and are fully word searchable and should be of interest
to family and local historians as well as genealogists. A third volume
will soon be online - 'The Inhabitants of Londonderry before the Siege'.
