  Note: The townland named for Owen gorme McLaughlin is an extract from

'Inquisitionum in Officio Rotulorum Cancellariae Hiberniae Asservatarum

Repertorium' (volume I Donegal AD (1621 11-Jac I)which is probably the source 

for all of these sources. It is a record of inquisitions of the Court of 

Chancery of Ireland in the public records and was compiled and printed in 

the 1840s.
