In Reply to: William Houston and Anthony Houston in New Castle, Delaware (circa 1700-1724) by Jim Houston of 744

re: William Houston bc.1672.
Would he be son of William Houston of Craggs (Craigs / Cullybackey ) co. Antrim, N. Ireland,
also of Castle Stewart, co. Tyrone, Ireland,
and of Cottreoch, Whitehorn Parish, Wigtownshire, Scotland ?

The new PRONI on-line catalogue shows
ref. T877/15, deed of conveyance
of the Manor of Castle Stewart, co. Tyrone, Ireland,
from the Earl of Suffolk, England (who m. Mary Stewart)
to William Houston of Craggs (Craig / Cullybackey)
who m. a Miss Stewart ?

Perhaps William Houston married about this date
to Miss Stewart and it was a marriage settlement
and William Houston of New Castle was b. about that time ?

Also in the new PRONI catalogue online
there was a Capt. Huston / Houston c.1682 who had
a nephew Danaldson / Donaldson.
Was he the Donaldson, cousin of William Houston of
New Castle Co, Delaware ?

Sometimes, in the 1600s elder sons had a number of properties, with their brothers or near family members
residing on them as "caretakers". They would venture between estates in Scotland and Ireland necessitated by politics of the times.
