    1. [NORTHERN-IRELAND] HALL, HAMILTON, Corlust & Ballyshielmore, Co ARM

    3. I have been researching these names in Corlust & Ballyshielmore, Co ARM for over 35 years and have not  advanced much in my Co ARM research in that time.  Such common names, both given and surnames.  I have so many possibilities in the surrounding areas, but can't make any *documentary links*. The registration district is Banbridge in neighbouring Co Down so that adds another layer of complication as there are heaps of HALLs and HAMILTONs in Co Down, as well. A possible contact records he has been told his HALLs came from Yorkshire during the plantations.  His HALLs were Anglican.  Mine were Presbyterian, but both were connected to the tiny townland of Corlust.  Mine appear in the records of the Clare Presbyterian church at Tandragee.  Another possibility is they were originally Scottish.  A DNA Ancestry test has not helped with this side of the family, as I have Scottish ancestors who may have originally been irish, on my mother's side and the Ancestry DNA result does not seem to distinguish between Irish and Scottish. My direct HALL ancestor, John Thomas HALL and his wife, Mary Jane HAMILTON and their two children, emigrated in 1863 to Australia and I was told  7 of his cousins emigrated to New South Wales. I have a transcription of a John HALL lease from the late 1700s for land in Corlust, in the lives of Thomas, Henry and William HALL (probably his sons).  It appears it was my direct ancestor, John Thomas, who sold the land to his neighbour, before emigrating.  He was, I have been told, the only son.  I think I have found one of the sisters in the U.S.A.  Another one was supposed to have married a FORD/FORDE, but haven't found her yet. The old newspapers, which can be found on Find My Past or at <https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/> https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk, are a useful source of information.  I found an interesting article about Thomas HALL of Corlust and his skill as a weaver.  The story appeared in many newspapers across the UK, so it is a good idea not to restrict your search to Ireland or the county. <https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/> <https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/>
