The first minister of First Stewartstown congregation was MR. WILLIAM CARY who was ordained here in 1790.

Surviving records of the congregation have been microfilmed by the staff of PRONI, Belfast, where they may be consulted: Baptisms, 1814-1871;. PRONI Ref: MIC1P/48

Marriages 1820-7: may be found in the registers of 3rd Cookstown (now Molesworth); PRONI Ref: MIC1P/ 460

The condition of the original records, a degree of difficulty in discerning the handwriting and at times, poor quality of filming make transcription challenging and wherever possible, the Donaghenry tithe applotment book (1828) and Griffiths Valuation (c1860), Index to Townlands and Towns, Parishes and Baronies in Ireland (1851) and Heather, Peat and Stone-O’Kane have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses. Original spelling has been retained.
