Burials at Dunluce Graveyard, Co. Antrim part_1

Post by irishgen » 09 Sep 2004, 22:04

From the journal of the Bushmills History and Folk-Lore Society and
appended below.

From 'Portcaman' the publication of the Bushmills History and Folklore
Group

DUNLUCE GRAVEYARD

J.Fred Rankin

The old church of Dunluce lies about half a mile south of Dunluce
Castle; it is a prominent feature, easily visible from the main road
from Bushmills to Portrush. Although space does not permit a full
history in this paper, this was the site of an earlier church, probably
built by the Quillans; the ruins which remain, are those of a church
built by Catherine, the wife of Randal, the first Earl and second
Marquis of Antrim, between the years 1637 and 1640. Although the castle
was besieged during the rebellion of 1641, the church seems to have
escaped and remained as the place of worship of the parish until the
present church in Bushmills was built in 1821. It was then unroofed, as
was the custom, and its contents sold by auction. The old church was
dedicated to Saint Cuthbert, although the connection between the
founders and the Northumbrian saint remains obscure.

There is a tradition that many of the Spanish sailors who perished when
the Girona was wrecked at the Causeway in 1588, lie buried in the open
part of the graveyard to the south of the church. The graveyard is
rarely used today but is a rich quarry for genealogists researching
families from the parish.
The recorded burials are chiefly from the eighteenth and nineteenth
centuries, but there are a small number from the seventeenth and a few
from the twentieth century. Many of the families are still represented
in the parish and of great interest is the variety of spellings which
can be found on the memorials; they come from an age before spelling
became standardised in the form we know to-day. Of equal interest is the
spelling of the townland names, giving a clue to the pronunciation of
the place-name at the time.

The north-western corner of the graveyard seems to have been reserved
for families of the Roman Catholic faith; here we find Mcllhargy
(mentioned in O 'Laverty's Down and Connor), Sheills and Hamill,
although I would not be certain if this latter family were Catholic, as
they are also represented inside the church.

References to other families can be found in J.B.Hamilton's Records of the
Court Leet for the Manor of Dunluce (Ballymoney, 1934) and in
T.H.Mullin's Families of Ballyrashane (Belfast, 1969). The author
recorded these inscriptions in 1984/5 and a recent inspection showed
that some stones, which were barely legible then, have deteriorated even
further. All the spellings are as recorded and the sign / marks the end
of a line, where a word has been split between two lines. In a future
paper, it would be of interest to analyse the townlands represented;
they range far beyond Dunluce parish, to Ballyrashane and Macosquin
parishes, even to Clady townland, which is, I believe, in the parish of
Tickmacrevan.
