I looked at one or two of the "two penny" books for Co. Derry today but
the entries were very sparse. Furthermore the various societies would seem
to have paid their own quit & crown rent in a lump sum for the whole
district, i.e. the lands are set out for which each society paid the rent
for. The Vol. I looked at was 1710. The series runs from 1699 to 1820 (&
after) with some few gaps. The entries might improve in subsequent vols.

Example of an entry:- 7 March 1710. received from Dudley Phillips (by the
hands of) Mr. Wm. Smith for one years crown rent due Michaelmas last out
of a fair & market at Lymavaddy & Castle of Lymavaddy, 15/6 -- That is Wm.
Smith the tenant paid the rent for the landlord.
