Speer of east Tyrone, & Hamilton of Newry - Family tree chart

This ancestor chart outlines the descendants of Thomas Speere (d.1636) of Desertoghill, whose son John Spear (1623–1705), settled in the parish of Ballyclog, barony of Dungannon and county of Tyrone. The chart also highlights areas of contention or unsupported assertions (in red font), as well as relationships, domiciles, and other genealogical details which require additional corroboration (green font, purple font). However, this family tree is the result of an extensive survey of the surviving records, and further corroboration may not be possible.
