The founding of Brigh congregation is believed to be 1630 when the Rev. ARCHIBALD HAMILTON was inducted into the charge, but was later ejected.

Surviving records for Brigh congregation have been microfilmed by the staff of PRONI, Belfast, where they may be consulted: Baptisms, 1837-1925; Marriages, 1837-1920; Burials, 1884-1912; Session minutes, 1826-82; Committee minutes, 1835-41 and 1885-1930; Communicants’ roll, 1842-1929 (from 1889 arranged by townland); Family worship lists, 1854-81; Collections, 1840-42. PRONI Ref.:MIC1P/13; D1759/1D/1

The condition of the original records, a great degree of difficulty in discerning the handwriting and at times, poor quality of filming make transcription challenging and wherever possible, the Ballyclog tithe applotment book (1826) and Griffiths Valuation (c1860), Index to Townlands and Towns, Parishes and Baronies in Ireland (1851) and Heather, Peat and Stone-O’Kane have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses. Original spelling has been retained.
