- Lease dated Nov.1, 1817, of 7 acres, 2 roods and 36 perches of land in Killyglen by George Hill of Larne to Andrew McNeill and Robert McCloy, both of Ballymullock; rent is 13 pounds per annum [PRONI D300/2/1/97/6].
- Assignment of farm dated Jan.25, 1860, in which James Barry of Belfast and David McCloy of Larne, executors of the deceased William Ballantine of Ballyhempton, assign farm to Michael Harison of Dublin and Jacob Adrian of Ballycraigy [PRONI D300/2/1/17/1].
- Documents [PRONI T3054/B/1] contain indexes of McCloy births, marriages, deaths and burials in the Glenarm region compiled by Rev. George Jackson. Unfortunately the documents referred to which he also compiled have now disappeared from the Public Record Office.
TITHE APPLOTMENT BOOKS
- A list of heads of households in the Glenarm area in 1832 includes William McCloy in Deerpark Farms (see below) and on Toberwine Street in Glenarm.
- The Carncastle tithe applotment book of 1834 (PRONI FIN 5A/66) lists a Joseph McCloy with 15 acres and 6 acres of arable land and 30 acres of mountains in the townland of North Lisnahay. One the other hand the 1851 Census suggests that this family called themselves McKay rather than McCloy.
CAIRNCASTLE LODGE RECORDS
Brothers William and Samuel McCloy were two of the original 20 men who applied for the warrant to found the Masonic Lodge 788 in Cairncastle. The original warrant was produced by the 44th Regiment of Foot of the British Army also known as the East Essex Regiment. Records show that William McCloy was a member of that regiment in 1772. Lodge 788 was founded in 1807. William McCloy was the Pastmaster of the Lodge in 1809.
- The 1856 Slater's Directory lists David McCloy, grocer and leatherseller, in Larne.
