    Notes 
    • (Research):Possibly the John Kirkpatrick listed in the 1775 Dissenters Petitions. The Penal Laws, passed after 1691 mainly by the Irish Parliament, were designed to restrict the religious, political and economic activities of Roman Catholics so that they would not have the means to threaten the Protestant (Anglican or Church of Ireland) monopoly of power. As a result Roman Catholics were excluded, for example, from political power at local and national level; from holding land on long leases and from many of the professions as well as the armed forces.

      However Dissenters, those Protestants who were not members of the Church of Ireland, were also affected by the Penal Laws. These were largely Presbyterians who formed a sizeable proportion of the population in Ulster and were seen by the Established Church of Ireland as posing just as big a threat as Roman Catholics. Consequently, they too suffered from religious and political discrimination. Presbyterians, for example, could not be married legally except in a Church of Ireland church and the ceremony performed by a Church of Ireland clergyman. Discrimination against Dissenters was further extended in 1704 when the Irish Parliament passed an Act to prevent the further growth of popery. This prevailed until 1782.

      This Act contained a clause imposing a 'Sacramental Test' for public offices that applied equally to all Protestant Dissenters. The Sacramental Test required those seeking or holding office to take communion at the Church of Ireland. Many Dissenters refused to do so and were thereby excluded from political and civic influence, and from the learned professions (apart from medicine) and other occupations requiring the oath. The Test was not removed until 1780. Attempts to limit the powers of Dissenters continued throughout the 18th century.

      In 1774, the Irish Parliament passed an Act excluding them from voting at vestry meetings of the Church of Ireland. This greatly angered Ulster Protestants who in protest petitioned Parliament in October and November 1775 and as a result the Act was repealed in 1776.

    • The link between John and Jane Kirkpatrick and those listed here as their children ,is unproven ,however ,after studying the family chart held by The Public Records Office of Northern Ireland(which lists only James ,Isabella and Mary) and also a chart drawn by Dr Robert Moore Kirkpatrick of Ballynagashel and William Wallace Kirkpatrick of Canada (which lists the remaining names) ,it is assumed this lineage is correct. What is not known is the birth order of the children -

      It is also not proven that John Kirkpatrick of Ballynagashel House is in fact a son of John and Jane,though it is normally agreed that the Samuel Kirkpatrick of Ballynagashel who died on 4 Jan 1867 ,was possisbly his brother.
