VITAL RECORDS OF THE SCOTS-IRISH FROM THE PARISH OF MAGILLIGAN, COUNTY LONDONDERRY, 1600-1800
Magilligan  

SCOTS-IRISH ORIGINS, 1600-1800 A.D.
GENEALOGICAL GLEANINGS OF THE SCOTS-IRISH IN COUNTY LONDONDERRY, IRELAND.

PART ONE – VITAL RECORDS OF THE SCOTS-IRISH FROM THE PARISH OF MAGILLIGAN, COUNTY LONDONDERRY, 1600-1800
. By Bob Forrest, B.A Hons; Economic and Social History (Queen’s University, Belfast). 65 pages + 2 maps

One of the greatest frustrations for generations of Scots-Irish genealogical researchers has been the absence of vital records for perhaps the most critical period in the establishment of their family links to Ulster, the period up to 1800. There is no comprehensive index to names for Ulster for the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries making it difficult to make the trans-Atlantic connection. 

This series aims to redress the gap in the records for early modern Ulster. Part One focuses on Magilligan parish in County Londonderry and includes 386 surnames and variants from the period 1600-1800 that may help some Scots-Irish to unlock their family connection to Ulster. This fully referenced booklet has been compiled overwhelmingly from primary source material located in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (the principal repository of Ulster-Scots archives), with the objective of providing some potential links, which should enable Scots-Irish connections to be made.

Genealogical Gleanings - Co. Londonderry: Thirty-one Will Transcripts from Coleraine & District
Wills  

In this volume, Mr. Forrest makes available the names of hundreds of Scots-Irish and their descendants who settled in the Lower Bann valley in and around the town of Coleraine in County Londonderry during the Ulster plantation. Coleraine was an important port during the Ulster plantation and many families that emigrated from Scotland in the seventeenth century entered into north Ulster through this important gate-way.

Mr. Forrest has trawled the vast archives of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland [and the Registry of Deeds] to make available the wills of thirty-one testators who were residents of Coleraine town and district from 1634-1832. In Ireland, as in other countries, wills are one of the most fruitful sources of genealogical information. Wills are a particular rich source for the family historian as they provide detailed information about family relationships and are clear indicators of the economic and social status of the deceased. Click for List of Wills & Surname Index
