I have a Madill ancestor from Co. Monaghan, Parish of Ematris on a farm 1.5 miles from the border of Co. Cavan. The farm was on the road between Drum and Cootehill, Co. Cavan. Griffiths Valuation lists many variations of the spelling of Madill. I think I counted 11. The name is clearly French Huguenot and means metal worker. The family lived in New Rochelle and was driven out of France in a progrom.
My Madill, William married Margaret Corbett ca. 1818 in the Church of Ireland and was estranged from his family there after. The family were very Presbyterian.
