David Gray of Dunseverick, 1641/2

David Gray and many others got caught up in the Ulster rebellion of 1641; it was part of the Wars of the Three Realms in the reign of Charles I.

The image is taken from John McCurdy's "Toberkeigh" and the depositions are held in Folio 3.9, Trinity College, Dublin [link added]. Just click image to enlarge it.

There is a David Gray in Dunseverick in the 1666 and 1669 Hearth Money Rolls, perhaps the same one who testified in 1651/2 and there are still Grays in that district.
