The various branches of the BALL family intermarried – more than once - so it is worth looking sideways when trying to make sense of the land transactions of the various BALLs of Co. Armagh. My personal interest in tracking the BALL leases is because of their connections to the JACKSONs of Urcher [aka Urker] in the Parish of Creggan as well as Tullyvallen in the Parish Newtownhamilton (NOTE: Tullyvallen was previously included in the Parish of Creggan). The BALLS were landlords to generations of the JACKSONs of Urcher and were also related to the JACKSONs of Coleraine - who in turn are possibly related to the JACKSONs of Urker.
