Your mention of the Huguenot name PILLOW jogged my memory, so I went to
look at my PRONI records. I had rooted around at PRONI T960/1 a decade
ago when I was snuffling around looking for OLIVERs. - who were also
Huguenots. It had lots on them. They intermarried with DOBBINs and an
Agnes PILLOW, daughter of Thomas PILLOW (1769-) married James DOBBIN

There is also PRONI T636/44
Lists of Tenants Dillon Estate. 1617. 1696. & Castledillon Rental.
247-54 (44) Original in Armagh Library. See Cat. of MSS p.9. Period
1617-1696. This is a very short abstract. Original much fuller. The
Rental of 1721-2 has been either lost or destroyed & the Pillow copy is
the only one in existence. Same applies to Rental of 1723-24. This is a
very interesting collection, no part of which has yet been printed.

1819 Henry Pillow's offer for John Henry's farm in Killyruddan.
