This John Marshall may have been the same who had been identified in 1710 as John Marshall of Clandavagh in the Vestry Minutes for the parish church of Caledon [source a, below]. He may also have been the John Marshall of Armagh who married Vincentia Creichtoun on the 27th October 1743. [source b, below] According to this resource: Vincentia was third daughter and co-heiress, with her sisters, of John Creichtoun of Aghalane, county Fermanagh; Vincentia's brother-in-law was George Bond (d.1747) of Tyra (also spelt Tirragh, Teeraw, Tyragh, &c.), parish of Grange, county Armagh [note c, below]; John Marshall of Armagh died on the 15th September 1755; and, Vincentia's will was proved in 1763, with no indication whether there was issue of the marriage. The registration of both this memorial (no. 176-193-118534) and that of no. 176-195-118535, Marshall to Craig, on the 30th May 1755 suggests that Mr. Marshall—who seems to have been formerly of Glendavagh—may have fallen ill and the lessees, therefore, wished to protect their leasehold interests by ensuring the registration of their respective memorials as soon as possible.  Source and notes: [a] Marshall, John J. Vestry Book of the Parish of Aghalow (Caledon, County Tyrone). Dungannon: The Tyrone Printing Co., Ltd., 1935. [b] Steele, John Haughton. Genealogy of the Earls of Erne. Edinburgh: printed privately by T. and A. Constable, 1910 (pp. 30, 32). [c] Later deeds indicate that some portion of the townland of Tyra devolved onto the Rev. Joseph Marshall (1801–1866) of Parsonstown, county Offaly.
