Not all these McCULLAs, McCULLOHs, or McCULLAGHs or what have you are known to be related. I have assembled this table as a first step to determining what if any relationships there may be between those McCULLAGHs who lived in Antrim, Armagh, Monaghan and Down. NOTE: In my family tree, I have recorded most of the variant names as McCULLAGH (including McCULLA, McCULLOH, McCULLOGH etc). It makes them easier to track, and sometimes several spellings of the surname are included in a single document such as my Rootsweb tree.

McCULLAGH connections -  A work in Progress. June 2016.

To be updated ….


Family Lines of interest to me:

·       Jane COULTER (b 1700), daughter of Thomas COULTER & Anne MAFFETT of Lisnawooley, Co. Louth, married a William McCULLA aka McCULLAGH, probably in the 1720s. They had three sons: Joseph, William & James.  NOTE: I have entered them in my Rootstree database. Was this William McCULLAGH a son of one of the three brothers: William McCULLAGH, Samuel McCULLAGH and George McCULLAGH who held land at Cloghogue, Co. Armagh in the post 1640s?

·       Jane OLIVER, daughter of William OLIVER (1730-1816) & Elizabeth STEEL, married a John McCULLAGH (?-1818) of Kearney Hill. He descends from a line of McCULLAGHs from Clady [aka Cladymore & Cladybeg], Parish of Kilclooney, Co. Armagh (it is on the eastern border of Lisnadill). That line goes back to a John McCULLAGH (?-1787), although deeds record the family there as early as 1740, and naming patterns suggest a connection between them and the McCULLAGHs of Antrim. Benjamin OLIVER, brother of Jane OLIVER brother leased 55 acres in the townland of Killynure. In 1879, A John McCULLY leased 5 acres in that townland, and the descendants of both families continued to hold land there up until at least 1929. The geographical proximity of the intermarrying families of OLIVERs and McCULLAGHs continued for at least 300 years. SOURCE: Revision Books.

·       An extensive line of descendants of Alexander McCULLAGH (1585-1682) of Antrim connects to McCULLAGHs of Grogan, & Piedmount & the Town of Antrim in Antrim, as well as Rahans in Co. Monaghan. NOTE: I have entered what I have of them in my Rootstree database. They are part of the Carrickmacross lace connection – Dorothea Beresford REED née McCULLAGH and her sister Anne.

·       A McCULLAGH who was probably born in the early 1700s who fathered Elizabeth McCULLAGH (grandmother of an Elizabeth McCULLAGH who married John JACKSON of Liscalgot), James McCULLAGH & Thomas McCULLAGH who had farms and businesses in Monaghan.

·       The McCULLAGHs who married WALLACEs.  NOTE: Was the William McCULLAGH (1814-1869) who married Sarah WALLACE (1821-1867) related to the John McCULLAGH of Dundalk who married her sister Anne Jane WALLACE (b 1819)? Were they both sons of the William McCULLAGH (1738-1817) and Hannah FAULKNER  (1757-1827) of Dundalk?



·       A McCULLAGH Freeholder Records table is on my web site. Of interest is the presence in 1818 of both Alexander and Samuel McCULLAGH at Clohogue, where three earlier brothers had land grants more than a 100 years earlier.

·       Peter McWilliam has a listing of McCULLAGH deeds on his Treasure Your Exceptions web site.

·       There are other deeds for which I have simply reference, and not much if anything in the way of notes. They can be accessed on my List of Deeds page.

·       Ros Davies has pages of McCULLAGHs in Co. Down. McCULLAGH A-J; McCULLAGH K-W; and McCULLY.

·       See also: First Armagh Presbyterian Church – lots of McCULLAGH (spelled various ways) are entered there – and relate to some of the names in deeds. I have entered the early ones here:

·       1654 The McCuilaghs, a Scottish or English family, 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 in

·       Co. Armagh and they built a scutch-mill (as well as several other mills) on the River

·       Fane, at the bottom of "Corismood". SOURCE: Cullaville Con Mac an Ghirr. Published in Creggan: Journal of the Creggan Local History Society, 1990 pg 60.

·       Culloville was likely named after them.

·       1641. With respect to holdings in Antrim, the 1641 Down Survey maps show 401 Plantation acres held by Henry O’NEIL (Catholic) in the Parish of Skirreocavan, Co. Armagh which were then shown on the 1670 map as being transferred to Randall MacDONELL, Earl of Antrim (Catholic). He was the Catholic landlord who “planted” the largely uninhabited parish of Creggan in Co. Armagh with Presbyterian farmers in the late 1600s, early 1700s.

·       After 1641: Three brothers: William McCULLAGH, Samuel McCULLAGH and George McCULLAGH and their brother-in-law John BROWN held part of townland of Cloghog. SOURCE: Account of the Barony of Upper Fews John Donaldson. Creggan Local History Society, 1993 p14.



·       Grogan is in the Parish of Dummaul, Barony Upper Toombe, Co. Antrim, as is Randalstown & Shanes Castle Park. https://www.townlands.ie/antrim/groggan/  The Prouty website locates it: 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 Antrrim, Randalstown district of the Upper Toome Barony. INSERT MAP Source: Groggan on Google Maps.

·       Piedmount aka Paymount aka Paymont – I still cannot find where it is. The curious thing is that deeds refer to it as being in Co. Antrim, and yet the only place I have been able to find such a placename is in Co. Louth.

·       Camly Macullagh, Parish of Newtownhamilton is a townland of 1029 statute acres 2 rood and 29 perches about two miles south of the town of Newtownhamilton. In the Tithe Applotment Books of 1825 the total area of the townland (Camoly McCullough) was recorded as 522A, 3R 10P (Plantation Irish measure.). By the time of the 1837 Census, there were no McCULLAGHs living here.

·       Clady. Aka Claymore, Parish of Kilclooney and/or Mullaghbrack. NOTE: I am guessing that the original parish was split in two. In the older deeds, the parish is recorded as Mullaghbrach, which is on the northern border of Kilclooney. In contemporary maps, the townland is recorded within the parish of Kilclooney.

·       Edenknappagh. Parish of Lisnadill, Lower Fewes., In the 1665 Hearth Money Rolls, a John McCULLAGH was recorded, but the number of hearths was not noted.

·       Tyrawlyy. Aka Tirearly, Parish of Lisnadill. In the 1665 Hearth Money Rolls, a John McCULLAGH occupied a house with one hearth.

·       Parish of Creggan: In the 1766 Religious Census:

NEED to check. UPDATE; October 24, 2017. Thanks to the work of Bob Epperson, it seems likely that Dr. John McCULLOCH (who died abt 1787) had a wife who died before he married Margaret SHAW.

James MacCullagh, the eldest of twelve children, was born in the townland of Landahussy in the parish of Upper Badoney, Co. Tyrone in 1809. He was to become one of Ireland and Europe's most significant mathematicians and physicists. He entered Trinity College, Dublin aged just 15 years and became a fellow in 1832. He was accepted as a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 1833 before attaining the position of Professor of Mathematics in 1834. He was an inspiring teacher who influenced a generation of students, some of whom were to make their own contributions to the subjects. He held the position of Chair of Mathematics from 1835 to 1843 and later Professor of Natural and Experimental Philosophy from 1843 to 1847. In 1838 James MacCullagh was awarded the Royal Irish Academy's Cunningham Medal for his work 'On the laws of crystalline reflexion'. In 1842, a year prior to his becoming a fellow of the Royal Society, London, he was awarded their Copley Medal for his work 'On surfaces of the second order'. He devoted much of the remainder of his life to the work of the Royal Irish Academy.
