1734-01-21: Diocese of Armagh – Court Cause Papers: Mary Ledlie, alias Henan, wife of John Ledlie of Derrywilligan, parish of Killevy, legatee of the last will and testament of George Lockhart of Derrywilligan, gent., deceased; versus John Lockhart of Newry, executor of the will of the late Mr Lockhart, for her legacy. [17]

☛ Ledlie of Derrywilligan – biographical notes and timeline page

1712-10-23: An Exchequer Bill, citing John Leadley of Faul,‡ county Antrim, and Margaret, his wife, aged twenty-one years, the daughter of William Rochester of same place, deceased; versus Mary Christian alias Rochester—who was widow of John Christian, mother of Margaret Leadley alias Rochester, and widow and executrix of William Rochester, whose will was proved in the Diocese of Down and Connor—and William Sharper and George Hair, also executors of the late William Rochester. Margaret Leadley alias Rochester had a younger sister, Anne. Their late father, William Rochester, left another daughter, Barbara, by a former wife, now married to William Dixon. William Rochester had a lease from the late Hon. Mary, Lady Longford.[10]
‡ also known as The Falls.
☛ The Falls (i.e., Ballymurphy and Town Parks) lie not far from Legoniel, all in the parish of Shankill. The latter place having been the townland where James Ledlie (d.1694) resided, the question arises whether John Leadley of the Falls was a cousin to John Ledlie, jun., of Carnan. See the entry, following:

1719-02-16: Exchequer Bill – Thomas Ladly (plaintiff) of the Falls, Belfast, county Antrim, versus: Mary Legg, widow of Alexander Legg, sen., of Malone, county Antrim; William Legg, son of the late Alexander; Alice Mathews, wife of Gilbert Mathews; and Margery Ryse, wife of John Ryse; alleging that plaintiff had borrowed £7 on bond from the late Alexander Legg, which he (plaintiff) has long since repaid in goods and long before the death of said Legg in 1706. [11]
☛ See the entry under date, 1733-03-02, in the timeline page for John Ledlie, jun., of Carnan, parish of Arboe. This entry—an abstract of an Exchequer Bill—cites a Thomas Ledlie, a near relation to John Ledlie of Carnan. The plaintiff owed both Messrs. Ledlie sums of money, and Thomas Ledlie had pawned some of the plaintiff’s goods.
☛ Entries pertaining to Ledlie individuals of Belfast, who were cited as, or might have been, nearly related to the Ledlies of Carnan, are highlighted in brown font.

1728-02-25: Exchequer Bill – Thomas Ledly of the Falls, Belfast, county Antrim, versus: Alexander Legg, jun., son of Alexander Legg, sen., of Malone, county Antrim, who died intestate in 1706, leaving defendant and another son, William Legg, and a widow, Mary, who have both since died; and Gilbert Mathews and his wife, Alice; John Rice and his wife, Margery; and Hugh Williamson; with some papers in the hands of John M’Mulland and James Wilson. [13]

1735-03-09: Memorial no. 83-209-58459 – a deed poll of an assignment, whereby John Leadlie of Belfast and Margaret, his wife, sold their one-third portion of Ballygarry townland to Edward Appleton of the Falls; which parcel of land had been conveyed by Mary Rochester, widow of William Rochester, deceased, and William Sharper and George Hare, executors of the late Mr Rochester, to John Leadlie and Margaret, his wife, on the 1st October 1713.
