[4qd-bannvalley] Allotment of glebes in barony of Loughinsholin [c.1624]

Hi all-

Just back from a week long internment at the Family
History Library in Salt Lake - first class operation -
very very impressive!

I am now trying to sort through my finds!  

One source that another researcher had told me about
was a book entitled "The Bishopric of Derry and the
Irish Society of London 1602-1705".  It contains
manuscripts and records which dealt with The Foyle
fishery case of 1945-48 in the High Court of Dublin -
basically over the the title to the fishing rights in
the Foyle -legally disputed for centuries.  To present
the case involved drawing on early records of the
diocese of Derry  to other property owners in the
diocese - voluminous manuscript files now called the
Ellis manuscripts.  The most important of these
disputes - that with the Irish Society - related to
fishing rights in the Foyle and Bann rivers and to the
parcels of land in the neighbourhood of Derry City but
(and I quote) "taken together they illustrate in
unusual detail the administration, civil and
ecclesiastical, the economic and social life of the
Foyle-Bann region."

I found the book fascinating because it concentrates
on areas where my Stewarts and Lowrys lived (the Bann
and the Foyle) Mostly relying on the indexes - places,
people, and even subjects - I found one letter dealing
with allotment of glebes in the barony of
Loughinsholin [c.1624]  It is labeled Ellis MS number
41.  It mentioned the glebe that my Stewarts were in
in Tamlaght O'Crilly - Killymuck!  

Knowing that others on this list have the same
confusion over glebe lands I thought I would copy the
chart of the glebes in this barony to the BV list. It
is in 3 columns. Hope you can read it.
