Loughguile [1134 names], Ramoan [427 names] and Rathlin [144 names] - a total of 7338 names.

The census lists the names of farmers in each townland within each parish. Below is a link to a database of these names and places. - read more. The names and locations in this database can be compared with the Griffith's Valuation database of c.1860 for North Antrim.
