(1) "The country was filled with discontents, and undoubtedly many of the inhabitants of Maghera and Kilrea districts were in sympathy with the party, the United Irishmen, that fostered the movement for social and political reform," though many Protestants withdrew "when they saw the extremes to which the United Irishmen were going." Caught up by the spirit of the French revolution, a mechanic at Kilrea fashioned a ten-foot tall guillotine with an axe cut off an old mill-stone. After conducting experiments on dogs and cats, "the instrument was carefully deposited in the corn mill of Lisnagrot.
  "A wretched vagrant named McCaul, who, a few years after, was transported for stealing cattle, made oath before Rev. John Torrens, that seven persons whom he named were captains in the army of the United Irishmen."
(2) The captains were James
Stuart, Charles Lamont, Dan McCusker, Archie Woods, James Boyle, Donal O'Kennedy and Hugh Graham. They, together with Samuel Moore, the mechanic who had constructed the guillotine, fled Kilrea. None of the seven captains were caught.
(3) The Rev. John Torrens, a magistrate of the county Derry, accompanied by a detachment of the Kerry militia, from Coleraine, went to Kilrea, to apprehend four men. On their arrival, they found that the men had fled, whereupon the magistrates ordered that two of their houses should be burnt, and the furniture of the other two also committed to flames.

At the Londonderry Assizes, William M'Keever, otherwise Campbell, stood indicted for two counts of high treason: one, charging him with compassing and imagining the King's death; and the second, charging him with adhering to the enemies of the King. One of the witnesses was James Gray, a grocer and leather-cutter of Tamlaght, with testimony also from John M'Allister. The testimony touched on allegations that M'Keever had attempted to compel Gray and M'Allister into joining the district society of the United Irishmen. After a nine hours' trial, the jury recessed, and returned after a short deliberation, with a verdict of Not Guilty. Mr. Justice Downes required Mr. M'Keever to find good security for his further good behaviour, and to take the Oath of Allegiance to his Majesty, prior to his discharge.

1798 - miscellaneous notes about the 1798 Rebellion
(1) The house of the agent for the Mercers' Company (later, the Mercers' Hotel) was converted to a barrack for soldiers.
(2) A soldier named McCamphill, from Lislea townland, parish of Kilrea, was captured by the French. While in captivity, he recognized the former Presbyterian minister, the Rev. Arthur McMahon, as one of the French officers. McCamphill wrote home of this fact and, though McMahon promised to return, instead he fled to Scotland in 1797, thence to London, and finally to France where he joined Napoleon's Irish Legion in 1804.
   The Rev. John Smith, "[b]eing suspected as an implicated character in the melancholy Rebellion of 1798," was confined for two years, but then freed. In the meantime, his farm at Lisnagrot had been taken from him, and he was homeless. He returned to Kilrea and married "a Miss Galt of Moyagney, and purchased the farm and residence of his father-in-law." He got involved in another riot at Kilrea, and was imprisoned again. The Rev. Mr. Smith would encounter further troubles within the Presbytery.
  "When the preconcerted date of the rising arrived, Maghera was found in some degree of preparedness. On the eve of 7th June, one of the Kilrea men turned informer and joined the yeomen, which had the effect of preventing a rising there. The Bovagh cavalry under Captain Heyland marched through in the direction of Dunglady, and found all quiet. Even at Maghera on the news of the failure at Antrim the rebel force dispersed."
(3) The extent to which the Rebellion touched the parish of Tamlaght O'Crilly was, "Colonel Heyland's riding through one morning with a party of yeomanry, on his way from Kilrea to Maghera to suppress a meeting of United Irishmen at the ancient fort of Dungleady."

1799–1800
"General disease was now induced, partly by the unfortunate civil war of 1798, which caused a vast destruction of grain and all the necessaries of life, by neglect of industry, and immense destruction of property, that its effects were felt in dearth, famine, and disease, for two years after the rebellion. The year 1799 was designated "the hard summer," by the lower classes, so difficult was it for them to procure food. The harvest of 1800 failed in every part of Europe, and the scarcity and wide-spread distress was greatly aggravated in this country, and in England, by the waste of the war with France, causes which pressed heavily on the Irish, who were badly prepared for such an event, after the recent disturbances: hence fever raged among them to a great extent, especially in those districts which had been the seats of insurrection." Ryan (1832), pg. 399.
