[4qd-bannvalley] A few questions

Hello Bob,

glebeland was originally land belonging to the Church of Ireland  
parish, in this case Tamlaght O'Crilly, for the support of the local  
clergy. By the eighteenth century, it was almost certainly being  
farmed by tenants, who would have paid rent to the clergyman. The  
Presbyterians in most congregations also used to have a farm for the  
support of the minister, and that might have been in Killygullib as  
well, but would more likely have been lived on and farmed by the  
minister himself.
For some reason the other two townlands in the parish that were  
churchlands and called "glebes" Killymuck Glebe and Lisgorgan Glebe,  
belonged one to the rector of Kilrea and one to the rector of  
Desertmartin. Another church owned td in the parish was Moneystaghan  
and it belonged to the rector of Ballyscullion! so boundaries and so  
on seem to have been unusually contested in Tamlaght O'Crilly area

BTW Tamlaght O'Crilly means the plague grave of the O'Crilly clan,  
who were the erenaghs of the parish
