ChartsLine 17. The Newtownards line
Mini-chart 6270 Newtownards
It has been suggested that Unknown #4 Cree, progenitor of the Tyrone and Jefferson Townships lines in Pennsylvania, may be the same person as John Cree from Ballycastle, County Down, Ireland. There is evidence that Unknown #4 Cree's two sons had arrived in the USA by 1775, the very year that the map of John Cree's farm in Ballycastle was made. As the map is likely to have been made when John subdivided his farm, with his brother James receiving one of the three portions, it seems also likely that John Cree was indeed Unknown #4 Cree.


It is worth noting that John Cree's brother James had a daughter Ann Cree who married Thomas Roddy, while Unknown #4 Cree's son Robert Cree (of Tyrone Township) married a Mary Roddy, whose father Alexander Roddy is known to have been born in Ireland of Ulster-Scots descent.3 John Cree was born c 1718. The birth date is approximate and based on the probability that John was the eldest surviving son of Robert Cree at the latter's death in 1756, since he was tenant of the 41 acre farm at Ballycastle. We know that Samuel had also died in 1756 and we know birth years of the other brothers. He was the son of Robert Cree (of Newtownards, Co. Down).

On 7 October 1766 John Cree was living in Ballycastle, County Down, Ireland. He was shown as an elector there and a tenant of Lord Londonderry.4

A map dated 20 July 1775 refers to John Cree's farm in Ballycastle, County Down, and also to his brother James Cree.5
A map of John Cree's farm at Ballycastle, Co. Down, dated 20 July 1775


On 20 July 1775 John Cree and James Cree were living in Ballycastle, Newtownards parish, County Down, Ireland. The map shows that John Cree was the tenant of 41 acres of Lord Londonderry's estate and that he subdivided the farm on that date, with John himself taking the largest portion, and James Cree receiving 9 acres 1 rood 5 perches. There is no copy surviving of John Cree's lease.6,7

Sylvia J Pinder died on 14 February 2013 in Town Thorns Care Home, Easenhall, Warwickshire, England.4

Sylvia J Pinder was described as "an amazing mother. She would go to the ends of the earth for you. She was amazingly organised and managed to juggle so many things like working life, kids, dogs, hobbies. She was an upholsterer, a silversmith, played the piano and travelled extensively. She faced the end with courage. She did not weaken or flinch from what she knew was coming. It really is the end of an era.”.5

    She was 79 and had been battling lung cancer for several months.
    More than 90 people attended her funeral at Catthorpe Manor, followed by an interment at Greenhaven, in Lilbourne.
    One former patient said Sylvia and her late ex-husband William, also a village GP, were responsible for the “golden age” of medical care in Wolston.
    And family friend Dr Howel Jones said: “When she was working as a GP I and my hospital colleagues considered her to be one of the best doctors in the area, and an example of what every family doctor should strive to be. “She was knowledgeable, reliable and caring to a fault, and she had an encyclopaedic knowledge of her patients, their families and their backgrounds.”."

ChartsLine 17. The Newtownards line
Mini-chart 6270 Newtownards
Mini-chart 6474 Grindon, Co Durham
James Cree was born in 1809 or 1810 in County Down, Ireland. Presumably he was born at Ballycastle, which was now in Greyabbey parish.1 He was the son of Robert Cree and Alice Cree (married name).

The details of James and Isabella Cree and their descendants were researched by Angela Cree.

James Cree married Isabella Adams, daughter of James Adams, on 23 January 1834 in the Presbyterian Church, Millisle, Donaghadee parish, County Down, Ireland. Trevor Cree writes: This marriage is a vital piece of evidence since it proves that the Durham Crees are direct descendants of the Ballycastle Cree, leading back to the gravestones in Movilla churchyard.

Isabella's home, Ballyblack. is about 1.5 km N of the Cree farm at Ballycastle.2,3

His daughter Jane Ann Cree was born in 1836 in Greyabbey, County Down, Ireland.1 From 1836 to 1843 James Cree was a tenant in Ballycastle, Newtownards, County Down, Ireland. James Cree was the original lessee. The land consisted of two plots of combined area almost 18 acres. This comprised the original 9a:1r:5p of the 1776 lease and the 7a:3r:34p of the 1823 lease. Rent Rolls show James Cree as the occupier of land at Ballycastle in 1843 and Widow Alice Cree (his mother) from 1844 to 1845 but not thereafter. His grandfather's lease of the 9a:1r:5p would not expire until 1850 but it is occuped by a John McClune.4

His daughter Isabella Cree was born in 1838 in Greyabbey, County Down.1

His son Robert Cree was born between 1841 and 1844 in Greyabbey, County Down.1

His son James Cree was born in 1846 in Greyabbey, County Down.1

Between 1846 and 1848 James Cree and Isabella Adams moved from County Down, Ireland, and settled at Grindon, County Durham, England, accompanied by Jane Ann Cree, Isabella Cree, Robert Cree and James Cree.1

Angela Cree points out that James Cree was a tenant of Lord Londonderry on his estate at Mount Stewart, County Down, and that in the famine years the latter facilitated the family's move to his County Durham estate of Wynyard Hall where he provided employment for the family. She says that, "there has always been the story that the family came from Scotland originally, being part of the McRae clan of Ayrshire."1

His daughter Margaret Cree was born c November 1848 in Wolviston, County Durham, England.1,5

On 30 March 1851 James Cree and Isabella Adams were living in Metcalf Buildings, Norton, County Durham, England, along with Jane Ann Cree, Robert Cree, James Cree and Margaret Cree. James Cree was an agricultural labourer aged 42 and his wife Isabella Adams was 36. Ann J Cree (sic) was 15, Robert 7, James 5 and Margaret 3. All were born in Ireland except Margaret who was born at Woolviston (sic), County Durham.6

James Cree died between 1851 and 1861 in Wolviston and Grindon, County Durham, England.1,6,7

James Cree was born in 1683 or January 1684.1

Until three months before his death, he was able to go about his farm, and do some work in it. He retained his senses to the last. He was punctual to his word, and often said he abhorred the violators of their promise. He always met his neighbours with a cheerful countenance. He left a noble example to those who are desirous of long life, good health, and easy circumstances, by his constant practice of going to bed with his head cool, and his feet warm.2
