List of Leaseholders/Tenants to accompany 1734 Ballymoney Map

In 1734 the town of Ballymoney was surveyed by Archibald Stewart for the, then, Earl of Antrim. This work was done for the purposes of indicating the main leaseholders/tenants in the town at that time. The result was a map which shows us the layout and extent of the town in the first half of the eighteenth century with each individual tenement shown and numbered. The numbers refer to the list of leaseholders/tenants which accompanies the map. Since these are leaseholders some may not have lived on the holdings where their names are shown. Clearly those with more than one holding can have only lived on one of them and, some, may not have lived in the town at all. Note that modern-day High Street and Townhead Street are listed as Upper Main Street with Townhead Street shown as the road to Coleraine.
