INTRODUCTION

 

ORGANIZATION OF MATERIAL

The purpose of my research into the Hendersons was to find my own Henderson ancestors, who were from Caledon, and Kilmore Townlands, Aghaloo Parish, Co. Tyrone, and possibly from Drumhilery Townland, Tynan Parish, Co. Armagh –all a part of the Caledon Estate. A second objective soon became to connect them to the large number of other Hendersons, especially in Aghaloo Parish. Having limited success in making those larger connections to my own Henderson family, I thought it worthwhile to compile all the Henderson records for the benefit of others. The 359 records in this manuscript were collected over the course of several visits to PRONI, the National Library, Dublin, the National Archives, Dublin, and from other records available on the internet. For all records in this record collection where sources are included, the source always follows the record. The actual Henderson records are organized as follows:

1. Eastern Aghaloo Parish and related areas:

1.1. Townlands of Caledon Village, Guiness, Kilmore, Tullynashane, Dyan, Stragrane, Mullaghmore East, Kilsannagh, and Mullintor.

1.2. Other Nearby Locations with Hendersons most likely related to those of Eastern Aghaloo Parish, namely:

1.2.1. Tynan parish, Co. Armagh

1.2.2. Dungannon Town, Drumglass Parish, Co. Tyrone

1.2.3. Co. Donegal

1.2.4. Co. Londonderry

1.2.5. Co. Sligo

2. Western Aghaloo Parish and Carnteel Parish

3. Other locations possibly relevant to the earliest origins in Ireland of the Hendersons of Aghaloo Parish

 

The reasons for this choice of geographic division of Henderson records follows:

1. EASTERN AGHALOO HENDERSON RECORDS

Eastern Aghaloo Parish is not an official geo-political area, but merely one of my own construct.

 

1.1. Townlands of Caledon Village, Guiness, Kilmore, Tullynashane, Dyan, Stragrane, Mullaghmore East, Kilsannagh, and Mullintor.

These townlands lie along the Blackwater River, with County Armagh on the other side of the river. They extend from Caledon, northward to the Aghaloo Parish border with Clonfeacle Parish, Co. Tyrone. The Hendersons in these townlands appear to have all been related to each other. From at least 1752, and probably earlier, they held leases in perpetuity (for reasons unknown) from the estate owners covering five generations of Henderson leases. These leases were mostly for 8 houses (tenements), backhouses (probably cottages for cottiers), and garden on a lot 70 feet by 320 feet, on Church Hill, (now Churchill Road), Caledon Village, as well as leases for several bog lands. This large tenement lot was on the west side of Church Hill, running roughly from the main street of Caledon up Church Hill to the present Church Hill School, now known as Churchill School. St John’s Church of Ireland (Anglican) is across the road from the school. This lot on Church Hill came to be known as Henderson’s Row. It was obviously a profitable lease. From this lot, the Hendersons operated businesses as blacksmiths, whitesmiths (tinsmiths), merchant grocers, and operated a post office, a school, and a boarding house, in various periods. The leases seem to have been divided up between 3 or 4 branches of the same Henderson family. In the lease records, the lot is most often referred to as ‘The Tenements on Church Hill.’ Those who benefited from leases on this property, in turn acquired leases in other townlands of the eastern portion of Aghaloo Parish, and elsewhere, presumably for younger sons who were not to have a part in the leases for the tenements on Church Hill. I tried to draw up a family tree from all the records for Eastern Aghaloo Parish, but there were too many men with the Christian names of John, James, and Thomas, and too few church baptism records to make any tree reliable. All records are organized chronologically. No records were found for Hendersons living in any other townlands of Eastern Aghaloo Parish, except for those townlands listed above.

 

1.2. Locations with Hendersons most likely related to those of Eastern Aghaloo Parish

Henderson records for Tynan Parish and Farnaloy, Derrynoose Parish, both in County Armagh, follow the records of Eastern Aghaloo Parish, because most of the townlands on which Hendersons were found in Tynan Parish, and Farnaloy were part of the Caledon Estate of Aghaloo Parish. Some of those Hendersons belonged to the C of I in Caledon, or at least were buried there, even though they did not reside in Aghaloo Parish. The Hendersons of Eastern Aghaloo Parish also acquired leases in Dungannon Town, and in Counties Donegal, Londonderry, and Sligo, and vice versa.

I found no connections whatever between the Hendersons of Eastern Aghaloo Parish, and the Hendersons of Western Aghaloo Parish. I rather suspect that they were not related to each other, unless it was from before 1752.

 

2. WESTERN AGHALOO PARISH & CARNTEEL PARISH HENDERSON RECORDS

The Hendersons in the western half of Aghaloo Parish gravitated towards Carnteel Parish, were engaged as witnesses to a number of leases and deeds of the Marshall family of Glenkeen and Glendavagh in western Aghaloo Parish, and were not mentioned in any of the leases for the Church Hill tenements in Caledon Village, or any other leases in Eastern Aghaloo Parish. The records are organized chronologically.

 

3. OTHER LOCATIONS POSSIBLY RELEVANT TO THE EARLIEST ORIGINS WITHIN IRELAND OF THE HENDERSONS OF AGHALOO PARISH

The earliest record found for a Henderson in Aghaloo Parish was 1710, and in Tynan Parish 1685. Aghaloo Parish was not settled as part of the Ulster Plantation scheme of 1608-1622. There were certainly English and Scottish settlers in Aghaloo Parish before 1640, and the Parish was repopulated with new settlers about 1661. These earliest landlords of Aghaloo Parish obtained their tenants from elsewhere, either directly from Scotland and England, and/or from other Ulster locations that were settled in the Ulster Plantation scheme. The most likely, but unproven, candidates as early sources of Hendersons who may have relocated to Aghaloo Parish prior to 1710 are th0se of the Ulster Plantation, Abercorn Estates in County Tyrone, and the Ulster Plantation Estates of the Bishop of Armagh, and Trinity College, Dublin in County Armagh.

KILMORE TOWNLAND –The following is all one family.

c1760s-70s:

1. William Henderson, born in the late 1760s or early 1770s, married about 1797, probably in Aghaloo, to probably Mary Ann Edwards. No marriage record has been found. They both died in Ireland. William’s wife’s maiden name is deduced from the fact that in three successive generations, her male Henderson descendants in Canada were given the middle name Edwards (with an ‘s’).

James Henderson of Kilmore:

37. 1862, May 1: Last Will & Testament of James Henderson: In his Will, the corner house, premises and tenements are “allowed to be sold”. This would be the tenements on Church Hill, Caledon. In his Will, he mentions:

- His wife (unnamed) is to have the proceeds of rents from the tenements, until the property is sold.

- A sister, Elizabeth (Henderson) McDonnell. James leaves £6 to his sister Elizabeth.

- A son, James Henderson Junior, who is to receive half the proceeds from the sale of his father’s property, but until sold, James Jr. is not to receive any of the rents from the tenements or chattles, nor to reside in the corner house where his father now resides, nor take the furniture, or anything else whatever. See the entry under 1910 below.

- A daughter, Sarah Henderson and husband Charles Wilson, and their 2 children Anne Eliza Wilson and Sarah Wilson: James Sr.’s Will leaves half the proceeds from the sale of his properties to his daughter Sarah. And he leaves £25 each to Sarah’s children Anne Eliza Wilson and Sarah Wilson.

- A daughter, Jane Henderson, husband Samuel Murdock (married in 1841) who were living in Monaghan. See under May 19, 1841 – Jane Henderson. In his Will James I leaves £50 to his daughter Jane Murdock.

- A daughter Elizabeth Henderson, husband James Archer (married in 1841). In his Will, James leaves £30 to his daughter Elizabeth.

James’ Will further leaves: a) £6 to the Church Education Society for the Diocese of Armagh (C of I), b) £6 toward liquidation of the debt on the Caledon Presbyterian Manse, and c) After all of the above is paid off, the remainder is to go to Samuel Murdock for the care and support of James Sr.’s wife.

Source for the Last Will and Testament of James Henderson Sr.: PRONI Wills Index. The full Will is available on the PRONI website. Note: James Henderson Sr. either bought the properties, and tenements on Church Hill (ie. He was not a renting tenant), or his father may have purchased it, and left the properties to his son James. After the potato famine of 1845-48, the Earl of Caledon, like so many Estate owners, may have lost a lot of tenants to starvation, death, and through emigration.
