    • There is a known McPhedris family in exactly this area around Coleraine, which is fortunately discussed in a little detail by Rev T H Mullin and J E Mullin in "The Kirk and Parish of Ballyrashane since the Scottish Settlement", published in 1957. I am lucky enough to have a copy at the moment on loan from Trinity College, Dublin. The main references to McPhedris in the book is here (I include the whole discussion since the book is very difficult to obtain):



      (p 65) "At this period the McPhedris family make their last appearances in the district. In the lease already mentioned, Daniel Mecan took over lands in Kirkstown formerly in the possession of Captain John McPhedris. Aboutthe same date part of Ballyvelton possessed by William McPhedris passed to Hugh Moore of Ballyholme. As there is a reference in 1712 to Captain McPhedris and his father, it is likely that the head of the family at this period was William McPhedris who is mentioned in the Route minutes, and that Capt. John McPhedris was his son. The name McPhedris now disappears... A Gilbert McFedrick represented Ballymoney at the Synod in 1710 and Robert William Daniel and Archibald McPhedrix were heads of families in Ballymoney 1751-1758."

      Its possible, not certain, that the Gilbert of the last paragraph is this Gilbert who was with his brother Archibald in NH.
