Magherafelt, is a market town in County Derry, thirty five miles W.N.W. from Belfast, situated on the road from Coleraine to Dungannon.  It is a well built town, consisting of a spacious square, from which four streets radiate at the angles, and from these diverge smaller streets in various directions.  In the centre of the square stands the market house, the upper part contains apartments for transacting public business, and a bail room.  At the lower end of the town is the court-house, a convenient edifice, with a small bridewell attached.  The town is the property of the Salters' Company of London.  The linen manufacture employs a large proportion of the inhabitants.  Brewing, tanning and the general grain business, are branches extensively carried on, and in the retail drapery and a few other trades there are several well stored shops.  The Belfast Banking Company and the Northern Banking Company have each a branch in the town.  General Sessions of the peace are held in the court-house in January, April, July and October, as are detty (petty) sessions on the last Wednesday of each month.  The Parish church is a beautiful edifice, built in 1857, at a cost of 7,000, 4,000 of which was subscribed by the Salters' Company of London.  It is considered one of the handsomest churches in this part of the country.  The Presbyterian church has been erected at a cost of 3,000, 1,200 was subscribed by the Salters' Company of London.  It is situated at the top of Meeting Street, where a beautiful view is commanded of the town and surrounding country.  A very neat and comfortable manse has been erected for the minister, also a male and female school house.  The ground for erecting these buildings upon was given gratuitously by the Salters' Company.  The Wesleyan Methodists have a chapel in the town, and a short distance from it the Roman Catholics have a place of worship.  The charities comprise a dispensary and a union workhouse, and several schools for gratuitous education of both sexes, among these is Rainey's endowed school and apprenticeship fund.  The principal and general market is held on Thursday, and that for oats on Monday, and wheat on Wednesday.  The butter and linen market is held in Market Square, the pork, oats and wheat market in Charity Street, and potato market in Market Square, the flax market in Broad Street.  On the second Thursday in every month there is a large linen market, and extensive cattle markets of fairs are also held monthly.  The fairs are held on the last Thursday of every month.  The Parish of Magherafelt, in 1851, contained 6,592 inhabitants, and the town 1,390 of that number.

                                  MONEYMORE                   back to top

Moneymore, is a market town in County Derry, 32 Irish miles W.N.W. from Belfast.  The town and a large tract of the adjacent country are the property of the Drapers' Company, London, who have greatly improved the town and district.  Petty sessions are held on the first Tuesday in each month.  The whole estate belonging to the Company comprises sixty four townlands.  The Parish church of Desertlyn, in the town, is a very elegant structure, in the Norman style, erected in 1832, at an expense of 6,000, wholly defrayed by the Drapers' Company.  The Drapers' Company also built at their expense the Rev. Dr. Barnett's Presbyterian House, at a cost of 4,000, and subscribed liberally to the building of the Rev. Robert Sinclair's Presbyterian church.  Since the estate came into their possession, they have expended 50,000 in the improvement of the town of Moneymore alone, exclusive of about 100,000 upon other portions of the property.  The weekly market is held on Friday, and there is a general  market or fair on the 21st of each month.  Population in 1851, 781.

                            MOY AND CHARLEMONT             back to top

Moy, is a small market town in County Tyrone, forty nine miles S.W. from Belfast, situated on the River Blackwater, on the road from Armagh to Dungannon.  It was designed, in the year 1764, by the late Earl of Charlemont, the proprietor, after the plan of Marengo, in Italy.  Two quays on the river were erected by the Charlemont family, with extensive stores, and the Blackwater being navigable from Lough Neagh for lighters of sixty tons burthen, an immediate communication is formed with Belfast and Newry by the Lagan and Newry Canals, and with Lough Erne by the Ulster Canal.  A handsome market place, with court house and news room, was erected by the Earl of Charlemont in 1828.  Petty sessions are held every Monday fortnight.  A constabulary barrack adjoins the market place.  In the immediate neighbourhood of the town and of Charlemont are several extensive linen manufactories.  The church is in the early English style, with a handsome square tower.  There are places of worship for Presbyterians, Independents and Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists.  The Roman Catholic chapel has a Doric front.  On an adjacent hill is Roxborough House, the beautiful residence of Lord Charlemont, originally commenced in 1774, by his uncle, the Hon. Francis Caulfield.  The fine plantations, tastefully laid out grounds, and elegant entrance, greatly enhance the general appearance of the town, while a handsome tower to the East is a picturesque feature in its beauty.  On the first Friday of every month is held one of the best attended horse fairs in the North of Ireland.  Population in 1851, 833.

Charlemont, a market and garrison town in County Armagh, divided from Moy by the Blackwater River, over which is a neat stone bridge of five arches, built about 1706, and rebuilt in 1858 by the two counties, Tyrone and Armagh, and is a perfect model in style and architecture, and adds considerably to the two towns it unites together, as well as to the magnificent entrance of the Earl of Charlemont, which it immediately adjoins.  The castle (built in 1602) is now the ordnance depot for the North of Ireland.  The town participates with Moy in the linen manufacture.  A new church was erected in 1833, on ground given by Lord Charlemont, it is a handsome structure, resembling in front one of the grand altars of York Minster.  The celebrated and pious John Wesley frequently preached in Charlemont, and occasionally in the fort.

Post-Office, Charlemont Square, Moy - Joseph Patterson, postmaster.  Letters from Dublin, the South of Ireland, England and Scotland, arrive every morning at 2.40, and are despatched every evening at 9.50.  Letters from Coleraine arrive every evening at 9.50, and are despatched every evening at 2.40, a second Dublin and Belfast mail despatched every morning at 10.50, and arrives every evening at 1.30 from England, Scotland and Dublin.
