[4qd-bannvalley] Estate records for Rasharkin parish


Does anyone know, who were the landlords for Rasharkin parish?
whether this was a London Companies holding?  and whether estate
records, including tenant &/or rental lists, have survived?

Regards to all,

Good point, and all very interesting, too, Bobby.  I see you also did
some research Scotland-side.

I believe it was the Drapers who were the landlords at Kilrea ... ?
Not sure, though, what these records might turn up.
