AGNEW, HUTCHINSON & MONTGOMERY ESTATES IN NORTH ANTRIM - Before clicking on the links below you should read this,

Agnew Estate: maps of some of the townlands on the estate with names of tenants, 1788 [PRONI: T2309/1]. Those townlands marked * will not appear in the later nineteenth-century lists of official townlands. Their names will still appear on Ordnance Survey maps as subdenominations of newer, larger townlands - see townland map. During the 1830s Tumoke and Mullan became part of the new townland of Magheraboy Upper. Ballymacwilliam and Killogue, along with the smaller townland of Crosstagherty, made up the new townland of Crosstagherty. Likewise the smaller Smallquarter and Loughabin made up the newer townland of Smallquarter. Note also that in the nineteenth century local people would often give these older placenames as their address on marriage, birth and death certificates.
