Descendants of Alexander McCULLAGH. NOTE: I have recorded most of the variant names as McCULLAGH (including McCULLA, McCULLOH, McCULLOGH etc). It makes them easier to track, and sometimes several variations are included in a single document. This is a work in progress

Updated February 4, 2019 Thanks to the eagle eyes of Bob Epperson, I have made a few corrections and have also been able to add more documents into the footnotes. Stay tuned - there may be more.

 


Piedmount
This is from Taylors and Skiners maps. The McCULLAGHs leased from the O'NEILs.

 

 

My interest in this family is three-fold.

·       The McCULLAGHs of Cullaville aka Culloville: The McCullaghs … had obtained a substantial portion of the 30,000 - acre estate of Sir Henry O'Neill of Glassdrumman, when that family was transplanted to Bohola in Co. Mayo, in 1654. They owned land in Co. Monaghan and Co. Armagh and they built a scutch-mill (as well as several other mills) on the River Fane, at the bottom of "Corismood". This mill was later acquired by Patrick McConville, Crossmaglen and, during the 1939-1945 War, was taken over by the Kingham family and then became known as Kingham's Mill. The burning of one of McCullagh's mills was one of the charges levelled at the "Crossmaglen Conspirators", in 1883. Camly McCullagh probably derives its name from one of these McCullaghs. The name clearly on Rocque's Map (1760) is "Culloville", without any reference to McCullagh. SOURCE: 1990 Journal of The Creggan Local History Society. Con Mac an Ghirr. P. 60.

·       Elizabeth McCULLAGH (1788-1880) married John JACKSON (1780-1817).

o   She was my 3rd great-grandmother.

o   She was the daughter of James McCULLAGH (abt 1740-bef 1840) and Sally McCARTER (abt 1746-1816).

o   James McCULLAGH (abt 1740-bef 1840)  was of Derryvalley, Co. Monaghan and was the son of an unknown McCULLAGH and his mother was Elizabeth 1801 July 2 - Will of Elizabeth McCullagh of Derryvalley

·       John McCULLAGH, a farmer of Kearny Hill, Co. Armagh. He married Jane OLIVER, sister of my 3rd great-grandfather Benjamin OLIVER (abt 1765-1831) of Killinure, Co, Armagh. SEE: My 2015 Blog Post: Presbyterian & Catholic Olivers of Armagh. The father of this John McCULLAGH, was a John McCULLAGH, a linen merchant of from Clady aka Cladymore. The townlands of  Clady Beg and Clady More are both in Parish Kilclooney (Lower Fews portion), Barony of Fews Lower, south of the City of Armagh and just north of Newtownhamilton.

 

STILL TO LOCATE: Dr John McCulloch (parentage not confirmed, perhaps a grandson of John McCulloch the younger brother of James of Groggan and Henry of Fewhogue) did marry Margaret McCulloch the daughter of William and Dorothy Beresford Shaw McCulloch.

[1] Alexander McCULLAGH (1585-1642) 

·       1 Sep 1642 (will dated Sep 1643 Summary thanks to Bob Epperson:  The Testament Dative and Inventory of the assets belonging to Alexander McCulloch son of William McCulloch of Myrtoune at the time of his decease.  Alexander died in Ireland on 11 Sep 1642.  The inventory of the assets was prepared by John McCulloch of Barholm, executor and creditor as determined by the court.  Alexander McCulloch by a bond executed by him on 21 May 1634 was indebted to John McCulloch for 20£ sterling.  The bond required Alexander’s estate to pay John McCulloch the sum of 20£ plus the expenses incurred in obtaining the Instrument Dative.

 There was another document dated 7 Feb 1643 which may have provided additional resources.  The will states that John McCulloch is to be paid in so far as the goods, gear, and sums of money available and as may be recovered by executor from the agreement of 7 Feb 1643.  Perhaps this agreement is the debt owed by Alexander McCulloch of Ardwell.

 Alexander McCulloch’s household goods and personal clothing was estimated to be worth 9 merks or about 6£.  The total inventory of his assets, i.e. goods, gear, and sums of money total 633£ 6s 8d.

 Debts owed to Alexander at the time of his death included 1,000£ owed him by Alexander McCulloch of Ardwell.  These funds may have been the subject of the 7 Feb 1643 document.

 The total inventory of assets and debts owed to the deceased valued 1,633£ 6s 8d.  This is certainly more than the 20£ owed to John McCulloch.  It is not clear what happened to the balance of the funds or how much John’s legal expenses were.

 John McCulloch of Barholm is the brother-in-law of Alexander McCulloch and married to his sister Elizabeth by contract dated 1 Nov 1608.(Stranraer Protocol Books: James Gover 1568-1618 , 85a; National Archives of Scotland Reference RH2/8/38, Calendared by Dr R.C. Reid) 

·       Alexander McCulloch of Ardwell is probably the nephew, eldest son of John McCulloch and Elizabeth McCulloch.

[3] Henry McCULLAGH

·       SOURCE: Bob Epperson - based on Pedigree of Henry McCulloch of Feehogue (PRONI D669/47) begun by Henry McClintock son of Dorothea Beresford McCulloch and James McClintock of Trintagh g-g-great grandson of “Henry McCullock from Scotland.”  A note in the Pedigree says “Jane (daughter of Henry McCulloch of Ballyarton and Ann Crawford) died at Ballyarton unmarried.  It was she who assisted my enquiries respecting the branc[h]es of the McCulloch family above.  Signed Henry McClintock 1788” implying that the Pedigree was begun by Henry McClintock before 1788.  The Pedigree adds Henry, presumably son of Alexander and Janet Kennedy McCulloch since the generations match up, in contrast to James Iredell’s copy of the McCulloch Genealogy made in 1773 from a copy made by James McCulloch of Camoley (d 1774) [“This Genealogy & Memoris of the House of Myrton herein contained, I transcribed from an old Manuscript, which I found among my Father’s Papers, but made small alterations in the Diction of the Memoirs, but none in respect to Facts. --  J McC  24 October 1767”]  The Iredell genealogy has it as “Laird Alexander came to Ireland with his Family to Sir Henry Oneill, who gave him Lands near the main water [Main River], where he resided until the time of his Death, which happened in the Year 1643 [Testament Dative dated Sep 1643 indicates Alexander died in Sep 1642 (Prerogative Wills Edinburgh, NRS ref CC8/8/60) ], & was succeeded by his Eldest Son William McCulloch Esqr of Brandalston [Randalstown], who died in Year [blank] & left two Sons to wit, James of Grogun & Henry of Brandalston.”  William McCulloch of Randalstown below and probable son of Henry McCulloch/McCullagh made out his will (PRONI D1118/3/7/1) on 6 Dec 1682 mentioning his sons James [of Groggan] who had been previously provided for, Henry of Fewhogue (townland adjacent to and north of Randalstown) who with his mother was executor, a married daughter, and minor children John and Rose.

[10] James McCULLAGH (1671-1725) of Grogan & Dublin

·       James was obviously the eldest son since he had already received his inheritance probably through his marriage settlement.  This land, which is presumably what he settled on his eldest son William by marriage settlement in 1718 was considerably larger than the lands inherited by his brother Henry of Fewhogue.

·       SOURCE: Prouty posts: James McCulloch Esq. of Grogan died on 5 February 1724/5 in Ireland, County Antrim, Randalstown District, Barony of Toome. He had his estate probated in 1725 in Ireland, County Antrim, Randalstown District, Barony of Toome. Our current understanding is that James was the eldest or possibly second son of William McCulloch of Randalstown died 1682, will probated 2 Apr 1682.

·       "of Grogan" Groggan is a small village, more like a crossroads, about 4-5 miles northwest of Randalstown in Drumaull Parish, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The map of Groggan Co., Antrim shows Groggan near the left hand edge, Drummaul near the left center top, and Randalstown is the shaded town area indicating a larger town at the left of center on the bottom edge.

·       Another possibilty is "Gortgarn" or "Gortagharn", both townlands in County Antrim, Randalstown district of the Upper Toome Barony. Any of these would coincide with his father's residence in the Randalstown area. There is a probate record for a James McCullock, 1725, baroney of Tome, co. Antrim, gent., which could fit this man. In addition, there is a probate record for Henry McCulloch Esq whose will was probated in Fewghoge, County Antrim in 1728. This could fit James brother, the townland of Feehogue is also in Randalstown district, Co. Antrium, Upper Toome Barony.

·       The Will (Dr. Victor Ferguson) is dated 1723; he describes himself as a Doctor of Physic, and appoints Colonel Upton and Colonel Brice of Belfast his Trustees. " He leaves his dearly beloved son-in-law, Captain James M'Cullogh, and his dearly beloved daughter, his wife, six of his best Chairs in his parlour, with his large Silver Salver, six Silver Spoons, six Silver Forks, and six Silver-handled Knives ; Forty Shilling per annum during her natural life to his dear sister, Mrs. Corry of Newton; £5 to the poor of Belfast, to be distributed among them as Colonel Brice and the Revd.

[17] William McCULLAGH (1700-1743)

·       SOURCE: Prouty posts: William McCulloh of Piedmont was born before 1700. He died in 1743 at the age of 43 in Ireland, County Antrim, Piedmont. He had his estate probated in 1743 in Ireland, County Antrim, Piedmont. He was also known as William McCulloh of Piedmount, William McCulloch of Camoley, Co Armagh on 19 Jun 1736 in Ballysavage, Antrim, Ulster, Ireland. He died 1743 in Piedmont, Antrim, Ulster, Ireland

·       William McCullock of Piedmont, will probated in 1743, is the brother of James McCulloh and Old Henry, all sons of James McCulloch of Grogan by his second wife. From references to him in other wills abstracted in the Registry of Deeds and Wills for Dublin, his death is estimated as between 1736, when he was named as a trustee in the will of James Crawfuird (Crawford) and 1745 when his eldest son was mentioned as James McCulloh of Piedmont in the will of William's brother, James McCulloh. William McCulloch of Piedmont was also listed as trustee in the 1728 will of John Shaw.

·       Locating the probate of the will for William of Piedmont confirms that he died prior to the death of his brother James, which accounts for his son James being known as James of Piedmont in his uncle's will.

·       ROD 544-48-357378 dated 1 Jan 1802 recites a deed from 22 Nov 1800 which must have been the marriage settlement for Dorothy and her marriage to John Reed.  In this she put her property in the hands of her father-in-law and attorney James Moody in trust for the use of her husband.  However, she reserves the right to dispose of the property in anyway she sees fit in the event there are no children.  Her husband, 91 when he died in 1860, was born in 1768 or 1769 which makes him nearly 12 years younger than his wife.  Her reservation of the right to dispose of her property to another in the event of no children implies that she may have already gone through menopause or knew she was approaching it. The marriage settlement and the trust acknowledge that her sister Ann must have been in poor health because it anticipates her death rather a marriage.  The expectation of an early death for Ann is fulfilled and the trust is renewed om ROD 682-435-469603 dated 2 Dec 1814 after the death of Ann and also after the death of Dorothy’s father-in-law, John Reed the elder of Ballymoyer.

·       R1 in "Inscriptions in Creggan Graveyard") This headstone, erected by his sister and nephew, is a memorial to John Reed, Rahans, near Carrickmacross. John Reed was a landlord and magistrate. He married the niece of Captain James McCullagh, Camlymacullagh, and owned part of the McCullagh estate. There is another memorial to him in Donaghmoyne Parish Church which reads. "In loving memory of John Reed Esqr of Rahans for many years churchwarden of this parish. This table was erected by his brother James and William Reed".

1970 reading of inscription:
"Sacred to the memory of John Reed of Rahans Esqr who departed this life 4th June 1860 in the 91st year of his age.

[45] Mary HOUSTON d. 1732

·       UPDATE:  Email February 4, 2019 I have seen nothing in the original record to indicate the maiden name of Mary. The burial records for St Nicholas, Chiswick, show the burial of Henrietta Mariah Houston, Inf on 17 Dec 1733.  Perhaps this infant was confused as being Henry’s first wife.  The burial records to show that a Mrs Mary MacCulloch was buried at St Nicholas, Chiswick on 26 Oct 1732.  This could be Henry McCulloh’s first wife and the mother of his son James who died in 1750. Reference to Henry’s son, James, is found in a letter from Benjamin Hill dated 23 Jul 1750 (Colonial and State Records of North Carolina, Vol 4, pp 1097-1100).  The close of the letter states:  “I sincerely condole you on the loss of your promising son James; it has been likewise my misfortune to lose my son Ben.  We must submit to the will of God.  My best wishes to Mrs McCulloh, Henry, and Miss Penelope.”   Mrs McCulloh, mother of Henry Eustace McCulloh and “Miss” Penelope McCulloh, was Penelope Eustace as indicated in the clandestine marriage records (St George’s Chapel, Hyde Park Corner, London; “9 Aug 1749 Henry McCulloh & Penelope Eustace, of St Mary le Bon” (aka St Marylebone).  The grandson, James McCulloh, left when Henry’s son James died is referenced in Henry’s will (British National Archives, Wills of Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Prob 11/1055) requiring his son Henry Eustace McCulloh to comply with an agreement on behalf of James Jr who was still living in North Carolina. 

·       Update: Bob Epperson February 4, 2019. The burial record of Mrs Mary MacColloch 26 Oct 1732.  These came online only recently and supersede the “garbled” summary that we received from the clerk at St Nicholas’ several years back.  I think this is probably the Mary who was first married to Henry McCulloh and would be the mother of his eldest son James.  I think he must have had word the James died perhaps in 1749 rather than 1750 and married Penelope Eustace to give legitimacy to his only surviving son Henry Eustace McCulloh as his heir, now that his eldest son had died in America. 

·       Email Bob Epperson January 2019: I know this is used in a number of places, but I have never been able to verify the source, and think it may be a confusion between Henry McCullagh son of William below and his wife Mary, but I can’t even confirm that Mary as wife of Henry McCulloch Sec of NC may have been a Houston although the Houstons and McCullochs were closely related and intermarried.  As far as this Henry is concerned he seems to have been a bit of a rascal when it came to the ladies.  He worked under his oldest brother James in a wine import business in Belfast (ROD Bk 41, No 27023, pp 490-91).  He was in London on his own by 1726 (ROD Bk 29, No 31992, p 284).  He had a son James by an unidentified woman.  In 1740 he sailed to NC as Commissioner of Quit Rents and took Penelope Eustace and their two young children Penelope and Henry Eustace McCulloh (their spelling of the name) as well as James.  Henry Penelope and the two younger children returned to London in 1747.  Henry and Penelope were clandestinely married on 9 Aug 1749 (See attached Henry McCulloh – Penelope Eustace Marr 9 Aug 1749 mrkup).  Penelope the daughter died 8 Jan 1766 in Chiswick, London.  Penelope the mother died 25 Apr 1766 in Chiswick, London.  The son Henry Eustace returned to North Carolina to manage his father’s estate, and son like father took a mistress.  He returned to England in 1767 or 1768 leaving his pregnant mistress behind.  She bore a child named George McCulloh, who Henry charged his cousin James Irdell (US Supreme Court Justice) with the child’s care.  Henry Eustace McCulloh married Udall West 18 Sep 1790 in St Marylebone Parish London (he was described as a bachelor) and died in 1812.  Udall died in 1842.
