Ardstraw (First) is a very old congregation; the first recorded minister was the REV. WILLIAM MOORCROFT who was installed in 1655 and was also in charge of work at Badoney in 1659.

Surviving records of this congregation have been microfilmed by PRONI: Baptisms 1837-90; Marriages 1837-1939 (PRONI Ref. MIC.1P/50)

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.
