Maps of Ireland

Ireland in 1700
This map shows the country of Ireland over the centuries. Of most important is Ireland in the 1600-1700, for that is when Northern Ireland was settled by Scotsmen.

Londonderry County, Northern Ireland

Londonderry is a county of Northern Ireland that lies between Lough Neagh and the Atlantic northern coast of Ireland. Londonderry is also the name given to the county's chief town which is both a city and a port on the River Foyle.

A close match in the DNA program points to an area called Ballymoney, which can be seen in this map about in the east portion. See Port Rush on the coast at the top. A ship left this port in 1740 bearing the Morrisons to Nottingham, no connection with Robert known at this point.
