2nd Newtownstewart congregation began through mission work of the Secession Presbytery of Donegal in 1826. The first minister was Rev. JOHN MARTIN. The two congregations (1st & 2nd Newtownstewart) amalgamated in 1902 and erected a new church on the site of the former 1st meetinghouse.

 

Surviving records of this congregation have been microfilmed by the staff of PRONI, Belfast where they may be consulted: Baptisms, 1848 & 1861-1905; Marriages, 1846-1910 (PRONI Ref. MIC1P/59)

 

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 (1833-4) and Griffiths Valuation (1858), Index to Townlands and Towns, Parishes and Baronies in Ireland (1851) and Heather, Peat and Stone-O’Kane have been consulted in an attempt to confirm families and townland addresses. Original spelling has been retained.
