County Down research
Posted by: Joseph McGimsey Date: May 09, 2001 at 20:43:05

Has anyone from County Down checked the following old records for McGimpsey's and variation of our name?

CENSUS AND CENSUS SUBSTITUTES:

1642 Muster Roll for Parts of County Down. PRONI 7563: SLC film 897012.

1659 "Census" of Ireland. edited by S. Pender. Dublin: Stationery Office, 1939; SLC film 924648.

1663 Subsidy Roll. SLC film 258621; PRONI T307, T1046; NLI 9584/5.

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH RECORDS:

Parish: Anahilt (Hillsborough)
Starting Date: 1780.

Parish: Banbridge
Starting Date: 1756.

Parish: Glastry
Starting Date: 1728.

Parish: Killyleagh
Starting Date 1693.

Parish: Millisle
Starting Date: 1773.

Parish: Portaferry
Starting Date: 1699.

GRAVESTONE INSCRIPTIONS:

Newtownards: "Gravestone Inscription Series, County Down," No. 11

Portaferry - No. 13

Millisle - No. 16

Bangor - No. 17.

I understand that this County Down Series has 19 Volumns. Being that large it should have a Surname Index. This had to be a great gift to researchers. However I suppose it is only in PRONI in Belfast. Any information you can share here would be appreciated by many people.
