    • John White, jun., of Antrim, chandler, by the elder White’s first wife;
    • John White, sen., m. his second wife in 1673 (d. 10th August 1701);
    • Elizabeth White (b. bef.1677), daughter of the elder White by his second wife;
      • Elizabeth White’s husband was John Ledlie, merchant;

  • 1703-12-10: An Exchequer bill filed by John Seawright of Mullaghmoyle (parish of Donaghenry), yeoman, citing John Ledlie, jun., as defendant, having caused Mr Seawright to be arrested near Belfast on a writ issued out of the Manor Court of Belfast for £30 damages, for breach of agreement, and to be committed to Belfast Marshalsea, where the plaintiff yet remained imprisoned. [9]
  • 1707/8-02-28: John Ledlie of Carnan was one of the executors of the last will and testament of his brother in law, John Clark of Maghera, co. Derry. [2]
  • 1710-11-29: A Chancery bill brought by Henry M’Manus and Matthew Squire, late High Sheriffs of the city and county of Londonderry, against Robert Thompson and John Ledly, who had acted as administrators in Derry Consistory Court in the estate of the Rev. William Muschett of Desertmartin, clerk and rector of Maghera, and Frances Muschett, the widow. Messrs Thompson and Ledly had launched a countersuit against the plaintiffs, alleging that a “False Return” had been made by them at an Inquisition held at Maghera in 1709—in which return, Thompson and Ledly were found not to have accounted for all of the assets of the deceased which had been received by them. In the present suit, Messrs M’Manus and Squire were acting at the behest of Adam Averell of Lurgangoose, county Londonderry, gent., from whom the Rev. Mr. Muschet had borrowed £21 10s. Messrs Thompson and Ledlie were creditors of the late Mr Muschet, also, and had obtained the administration of his estate on that basis. [10]
  • 1711-07-05: In a suit brought by John Ledly of Carnan, county Tyrone, gent., to the Court of Common Pleas, judgement was rendered against the Rev. Edmund Arwaker, in the amount of £100. [11]

The plaintiff, Mr. Blair, was a brother-in-law to the late John Clark. In 1704, he leased, in partnership with Mr Clark, the tithes of Maghera and Killyleagh in county Londonderry, from the then rector, the Rev. William Muschet. The plaintiff alleged that Mr Clark had managed the matter and collected the tithes for three years, but never accounted for the profits. In the interim, Mr Blair had gone surety for his mother, who has since died after a short illness, for money that she had borrowed from John Clark. The schedule mentioned the following names: Moses Clark, brother of John Clark; Elizabeth Clark, Mr Jackson, Chas Reen[?], John Maky, Thomas Garvan, Mr Harper, Mr Wardlaw, Pat O’Clery, Dan Brown, Charles Swindele, Thomas Adams, Captain Downing, Dougall Campbell, John Lyil, Mr Hairs, Bryan O’Devlin, Dermott O’Ferren, Shan O’Brullaghan, John M’Duffy, and James Clewns.

    Falgortrevy, parish of Maghera. 
  • 1714-05-07: Bill in the Court of Exchequer – Jackson Clark of Belfast, eldest son and heir of John Clark of Maghera, vintner, deceased, versus: John Leadly, executor or overseer of the will of the said John Clark; James Dykes, executor or overseer of the will of the late brother of the plaintiff, John Clark, jun.; William James and his wife; John Murdoch and his wife; and David M’Nelley, whose wife is deceased;—reciting the will of the plaintiff’s father, dated 9 April 1707, who left two sons, both minors, i.e., the plaintiff and his late brother, John Clark, jun., and five daughters, Margaret, Ester, Mary, Jane, and Anne, all unmarried minors; leases of Ballyknock and one-half of Longfield and Ballynascreen to the plaintiff, and the other half of Longfield and Ballynascreen to John, jun.; and a brother, Moses Clark. The executors were Jane Clark, James Rea, and defendant John Leadly who was the sole surviving executor. By his will dated 20 July 1721, John Clark, jun., left all his lands in county Londonderry to his brother, Jackson Clark, the plaintiff; the executor was James Dykes, named as defendant in this cause. [14]

William Goodlatt, George Kerr, Thomas Richardson, James Young, John Ladly, William Richardson, Thomas Corbet, William and Mary Irvine, and Mary Harris. The defendants had seized the tithes of the parish of Drumholm, which Rev. Mr. Arwaker had let to the plaintiff, Mr Dixon, at £163 per annum. The action cited the suit brought by John Ledly of Carnan against the Reverend minister in 1711 (for which, see the entry under date, 1711-07-05, above). [11]
  • 1715-01-30: John Ledly to be cornet in Captain John Houston’s troop of the Tyrone militia. [15]
  • 1717-05-13: 1717-05-13: Bill in the Court of Exchequer – Bernard Mulholland versus John Ladlie, executor of the last will and testament of John Clark of Maghera; Andrew Ballagh and his wife, Jane (widow and executrix of the said John Clark); William Jackson of Tobermore, county Londonderry; the Rev. Andrew Henderson and James Birkby of Magherafelt, county Londonderry, witnesses to plaintiff’s lease; and Thomas Taffe, lessee of John Ladlie, in a Common Pleas ejectment brought against Mr Mulholland.
       In 1684, Capt. George Gregory sold his tenant right in part of Iniscarn to William Jackson and the late John Clark, who let one-half of Iniscarn to Bernard Mulholland at a rent fixed by Andrew Henderson and James Birkby. Thomas Taffe, acting as agent for John Ladlie, brought an ejectment against Mr Mullholland in the Court of Common Pleas. The late John Clark left Iniscarn to his son, John Clark, jun.
    [16]
  • 1718-02-21: Bill in the Court of Exchequer (amended 23 July 1719) – Andrew Ross and Nathaniel Bell, gents., executor of the will, dated 25 February 1716, of William M’Knee of Killoun, county Tyrone; which Andrew Ross and his wife (a daughter of the deceased Wm M’Knee) and children are the residuary legatees; versus Jennet M’Knee, widow of the deceased; John Vance, debtor of the late Mr M’Knee; Thomas Kennedy, John Ladly, Margaret Wilson alias Steen, Agnes Paterson alias Fuken or Fuker, and Elizabeth M’Neely alias Hamilton. The plaintiffs were suing for the assets of the deceased. [17]
  • 1718-06-26: Exchequer Bill – John Leck (plaintiff) of Cockhill, parish of Tartarghan, county Armagh, versus John Ladly (defendant), who is suing the plaintiff in the Court of Common Pleas for the price of malt sold by plaintiff in 1716 as agent for defendant. [18]
  • 1721-07-20: In his will, John Clark, jun., of Maghera, cited his uncle John Ledly of Carnan as not having made an accounting to him of the administration of his father's estate. [3]
  • 1723-05-18: Exchequer Bill – John McNeile (plaintiff), Dr of Physic, versus the defendants: John Ledlie, executor of the will of John Clark, sen., of Maghera, county Londonderry, gent., deceased; Jackson Clark and John Clark, jun., sons of said John Clark; and Captain Thomas M'Lorinan; alleging that John Ledlie gave a letter of credit for her legacy to Margaret, one of the daughters of the late John Clark, sen., and her husband, William Jameson, on their emigrating to America; which letter the plaintiff cashed for William Jameson and Margaret Jameson alias Clark at New Hampshire in New England, 11 May 1721, who in turn handed him the Letter of Credit, dated 31 May 1720, and two bills of exchange, together with a release. These documents, the plaintiff sent to his wife in Ireland to be paid by John Ledlie, as executor, but who paid only one of the bills of exchange for £25, leaving one bill unpaid for £15. [19]
    ☛ Over the years, countersuits ensued: first by Messrs John Hamilton and John Ledlie versus Captain M’Lorinan on the 14 March 1733, and second by Captain M’Lorinan versus John Ledlie, 15th June 1733. [25]
  • 1723-06-12: John Ledlie, jun., of Carnan was the overseer of the will of James Wood[s], sen., of Ballygonny-beg, parish of Ardboe, county Londonderry, written 20th April 1723, and proved in the Diocese of Armagh, 12th June 1723. [20]
  • 1726-11-12: Exchequer Bill – The plaintiffs: Rebecca Woods, widow of James Woods, sen., of Ballygonny-beg, who died in April, 1723; and William Anderson, farmer, and his wife, Elizabeth, daughter of the late Mr. Woods; versus the defendants: James Woods, jun., nephew and executor of the will of the deceased; John Ledlie, overseer of the will; Samuel Rea and his wife, Mary, daughter of Rebecca Woods and the late James Woods.
    The late Mr Woods owned two leases: one for thirteen years in Ballygonny-beg, held from Colonel Joshua Dawson, and the other for twenty-one years in Ballygonny, held from Lady Mary Staples and Sir John Staples, Bart. He appointed as his executors, his nephew, James Woods, jun., his brother’s son, and William Richardson, who has since emigrated to Pennsylvania in America. James Woods, jun., the executor, was suing all three plaintiffs for the goods of the testator in the Manor Court of Artrea, of which John Hamilton was seneschal, and in the Manor Court of the Drapers’ Company, of which Thomas Hamersley was seneschal, while acknowledging that he had not yet paid the legacies due the plaintiffs under the terms of the will. [21]
  • 1727-11-27: Exchequer Bill – William Woods and John Woods (plaintiffs), only children of George Woods of Ballygonny, county Londonderry, deceased, minors appearing by John Speer of Ballyclog, county Tyrone, gent.; versus: James Woods, jun., executor of will of James Woods, sen., brother and administrator of the late George Woods, and John Ledlie, overseer of said will. George Woods died intestate in 1717, and administration was granted to his brother, James Woods, sen. [22]
  • 1728-10-25: Lease given by George Conyngham of Springhill, county Londonderry, to John Machlin of Coagh, county Tyrone, carpenter, of a tenement and garden, with fifty feet of frontage, on the east side of George-street in Coagh; for a term of lives: Mary, daughter of John Machlin, aged 20 years; and William Ledlie and Gilbert Ledlie, sons of John Ledlie of Carnan, aged six years. [23]
  • 1732-12-28: Memorial no. 121-328-83117 – A marriage settlement executed on the occasion of the intended marriage between John Burch (or Birch), son of Mary Burch alias Jackson of Loughans, parish of Tullylish, county Down, and Jane, daughter of John Ledlie of Carnan. [4]
    • Note – James Stephenson of Killyfaddy was appointed one of four overseers of the settlement.
  • 1733-03-22 (amended 24 May 1734): Exchequer Bill (answer) – The Rev. Thomas Power, a native of “South Britain” [England], Rector of the united parishes of Ballinderry and Tamlat [Tamlaght] in counties Tyrone and Londonderry, versus the defendants: John O’Hagan of Kiltas, county Tyrone, gent.; John Ledlie of Carnan, and his near relation, Thomas Ledlie; Richard O’Cahan of Kilrea, county Londonderry; William Trace, Thomas York, John Winslow, and Margaret White; alleging that: in 1727, Rev. Mr. Power, let to John Ledlie, for the time of his incumbency, the lower one-half townland of Kinnamuck, which was part of Ballinderry glebe land in county Tyrone, at £25 rent; when plaintiff was arrested for debt, his wife pawned some goods with Thomas Ledlie; when plaintiff was in jail at Culmore for debt, defendant Ledlie and Hugh Hamilton of Drumany, county Tyrone, visited him. The Bill includes a long recounting of borrowings from the other defendants, and their proceedings against him; included a mention of the Revds. Thomas Warburton and David Morgan, clerks, and Francis Leaper or Soaper. [24]
    Who was the near relation, Thomas Ledlie, cited above? If it were John Ledlie’s son, surely the record would have recorded it. In any event, John Ledlie’s son, Thomas, was born c.1719/20, and was in 1733 of too young an age to engage in pawn brokerage transactions.
    Might this Thomas Ledlie have been of the Falls in Belfast, county Antrim? The Falls is very near Legoniel, where John Ledlies grandfather, James Ledlie (d.1694) lived. See the “Belfast and County Antrim" section in the Early references page.
  • 1738-06-06: Memorial no. 92-36-63797 – an indenture of mortgage whereby, for the considerations therein mentioned, Hugh McLorinan of Dublin, Esq., assigned several parcels of lands with tenements, buildings, &c., to John Leadly of Carnan, Gent., with a clause of redemption. [26]
    See also the entry under date, 1740, below.
  • 1739-11-27: Memorial no. 96-402-68582 – a deed of rent charge—reciting a lease agreement (undated, but with a term of fifteen years) between William Morris Jones of Moneyglass, county Antrim, and Philip Morris of Tirkvallen, parish of Arboe, county Tyrone, re: the townlands of Legmurn and Mullaghrane in the parish of Ballyclog—whereby Philip Morris, for the consideration of £90, granted to John Ledlie an annuity of £34 from rents and profits issuing from the lease. The deed included clauses of distrainment in the event of nonpayment, and redemption of the deed upon payment of £90, with interest and costs, to John Ledlie. Thomas Ledlie of Carnan was one of the witnesses to the deed. [5]
  • 1740: Protestant Householders List: The names of John Leadly, James Leadly, and William Leadly were recorded in the parish of Ardtrea, county Londonderry. [27]
    The parish of Ardtrea includes Ballygruby which was one of the parcels given as security by Hugh McLorinan of Dublin on the 6th June 1738, for a mortgage given by John Ledlie of Carnan. These were probably John Ledlie, subject of this profile, with his brother, James, and either his son or his nephew, William. While they continued to live in Carnan townland, the appearance of their names on this list suggests that the mortgage extended to Mr McLorinan on the 6th June 1738 (see above) remained unpaid.
  • 1741-09-21: Memorial no. 109-414-76407 – an indenture of lease given by James Hoope of Dublin, Esq., to John Ledlie and Thomas Ledlie of Carnan, Gents., to cut in the woods, underwoods, &c. for a period of six years, and to raise bog timber for a period of ten years, on the Island of Derrinraw, parish of Tartaraghan, county Armagh, with boat, tackle, and access to the quays and liberty to cut moss, to build a blockhouse, and to enclose ten acres with fencing; for the purpose firing up to 60,000 bricks per year. [28]
    Gilbert Ledlie was one of the subscribing witnesses.
  • 1743-04-07: Memorial no. 111-244-76411 – an indented deed whereby, for the consideration of several rents and covenants, Robert Darragh, of Rafeenan in the parish of Tedavnet, county of Monaghan, conveyed the rights and title to Rafeenan townland to John Ledlie of Carnan—subject to an annuity of £26 payable to Mr. Darragh. [6]
    • Note – One of the witnesses was John Ledlie of Mullantimore, also of the parish of Tedavnet.
  • 1743-10-08: Exchequer Bill index entry: "119. Phil Morris v. Thos Morris Jones, Gilbert Ledlie, Jno Ledlie & Richd English (chm?] Morris Jones & Thos Ledlie & John Clarke) 8 Oct 43  chm [or An?] did[?] 22 Als 46 & 6 July 47  sev’l ans.” [29]
  • 1746: Death, and burial in Ardboe churchyard (Church of Ireland). Inscription on the memorial tablet impressed into the wall of the church:

  • 1747-10-12: Memorial no. 129-303-87151 – an indenture of mortgage between John Clark of Maghera and James Adair of Belfast whereby, for the sum of £800 in which John Clark stood indebted to Patrick Adair and Robert Jackson of London, merchants, Mr. Clark conveyed his right and title in several leaseholds to James Adair. [7]
    • The several leases recited included the following, which were formerly held by John Ledlie, but had become the property of John Clark:
      • [undated, and term not cited] – an indenture of lease granted by Lord Viscount Mountjoy, Arthur Hill, and Henry Brook, to John Ledlie of Carnan, in one-half of the townland of Aughrimderg in the parish of Clonoe—the parcel of land comprising seventy-nine acres two roods, Irish plantation measure.
