The names of persons and places to be found in the records of the county of Donegal are most significant to those interested in Pennsylvania history and genealogy, as many of the Scotch-Irish settlers in this state were from that portion of the province of Ulster.

Until the beginning of the seventeenth century, the vast region now embraced by county Donegal was known as Tyrconnell, and in very early Irish history, as Cinel-Conail, or, the country of the descendants of Conall Gulban. At the beginning of the reign of King James I (1603-1625), English authority was scarcely recognized in the north of Ireland. There were no towns of consequence and the people obeyed their native chiefs. After confiscating the Ulster Lands, in the counties of Londonderry, Donegal, Tyrone, Cavan, Armagh and Fermanagh, King James set aside the finest portions for British colonists, and assigned the naitve Irish to the poorer and more remote districts. View Original Page 257

Large grants of these lands were then made to Scotch and English adventueres. "James seems to have seen that parts of Scotland nearest Ireland, and which had most intercoure with it, were most liekly to yield proper colonists," and grants were made to the Duke of Lennox, who had great power in Dumbartonshire; the Earl of Abercorn, who represented the power of the Hamiltons in Renfrewshire; Sir Thomas Boyd of north Ayrshire; the Cunninghams and Crawfords of south Ayr. The greatest number of grants were made to men of Galloway.

Every person receiving two thousand acres of land, agreed to bring forty-eight men, of English or Scotch birth; who should receive leases for portions of the land and be supplied with muskets and hand weapons. The settlers began to arrive in Ireland in 1610; some were from England; but the majority were Scotch. Among the Scots who received grants for lands in county Donegal in 1610, were: Ludovic Stuart, Duke of Lennox; Sir Walter Stewart, Laird of Minto, Roxburyshire; Alexander McAula of Durlin, Dumbartonshire; John Cunningham of Crafueld in Ayr; William Stewart, Laird of Dunduff, of Maybole in Ayr; James Cunningham, Laird of Glangarnocke in Ayr; Sir Robert Maclellan, Laird of Bomby, Kirkcudbrightshire; George Murray of Wigtonshire; Sir Patrick Mackee of Wigtonshire; James McCullough of Wigton; Alexander Dunbar of Wigton; Patrick Vaus.

The parish of Raphoe in county Donegal is said to have drived its early importance from the foundation of an extensive monastery there, by St. Columb, which after its restoration, prior to 703, continued to flourish, and was made the seat of a bishoprick. George Montgomery, the first Protestand bishop of Raphoe, concecrated to the see in 1605, was very active and successful in increasing  View Original Page 258

 the number of Scotch planters there. He was a Scot, from the parish of Beith in Ayrshire, of the distinguished house of Eglinton, younger brother to the first Viscount Montgomery, and had served as Chaplain to King James, and as Dean of Norwich. So eager was he for settlers that he "settled intelligences to be given from all the seaports in Donegal and Fermanagh... and he ordered so that the masters of vessels should, after dislodging their cargo, come to his Lordship with a list of their seamen and passngers."

The succeeding bishops of Raphoe were zealous also in securing Scotch tenants for their lands. In a letter to the Lords Justices, April 27, 1631, Bishop Knox wrote; "I was translated to it [Raphoe] in 1610. The rents were then so small (£30 per annum) that as you remember I was given an annuity of £E.100. I then went to Scotland and, with great difficulty persuaded a number of Scotch people to come and colonise my see,.... the result is that this see is now planted with over 300 families of British Protestant subjmects."

A Muster Roll of all the Undertakers, Servitors, and Natives, in county Donegal, made by George Alleyne in 1618, shows these names in the Barony of Raphoe; Sir Rafe Bingley, Mr. William Wilson, Mr. Robert Davis, Sir John Kinsmell, Sir Thomas Cooch, Captain Mansfield, Mr. Peter Bewson, Sir John Steward, The Lady of Luce, Mr. Alexander Steward, Mr. James Kiningham, and the Lord of Dondoffe.

From A Muster Rolle of ye Province of Ulster, made in 1530, the following were copied. The complete roll is virutally a census of the Scotch and English settlers then residing in the counties of Ulster: View Original Page 259

Ruling Elders of the Presbyterian Congregation of Raphoe 1672-1700

Among the ruling elders and commissioners of the Presbyterian congregation of Raphoe between 1672 and 1700 were: Joseph Henderson, Edward Herries, William Mills, Michael Henderson, Robert Anderson, Michael Pyper, Patrick Bell, Robert Dick, Alexander Stuart, William Ramsay, James Laird, James Cowden, Robert Gray, Robert Walker, John McClure, Arthur McClure, James Flemmine, Robert Gray, Richard McClure, John Sproul, Alexander McConnell and William Bene.

These lists are interesting when compared with the tax lists of the Pennsylvania counties of Bucks, Chester, Philadelphia, Lancaster, and Cumberland, and with the names and genealogies appearing in the History of Donegal Presbyterian Church, in East Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, by the late Dr. Jacoob Lindenmuth Ziegler of Mt. Joy.
