Drumlegagh congregation has its beginnings in 1782 when it was known as 2nd Ardstraw and the first minister was the REV. THOMAS DICKSON; at that time it also included Castlederg (Dergbridge). The congregation has been known as Drumlegagh since 1913.

 

Surviving records of this congregation have been microfilmed by PRONI, Belfast: Baptisms 1865-1986; Marriages 1845-1930 (PRONI Ref. MIC.1P/303)

 

The condition of the original records, a degree of difficulty in discerning the handwriting and quality of filming make transcription challenging and wherever possible the Ardstraw tithe applotment books (1833 & 1834) and Griffiths Valuation (1858) have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses. Original spelling has been retained.
