[Find previous posting showing that Rev. John Heart/Hart had a meeting with Henry Cromwell, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, at Dublin, late 1650s.]
(2) _Register of Consultations_, 2:154, the Rev. James Sharpe writes: "that you are much wanting to your cause who doe not take care of what stamp they are who are sent from Scotland to be ministers in Ireland; he hears the most of the Scottish ministers there are Remonstrators, amongst whom M. Hart is a leading man ..."
Additionally, Jan's transcription of the 1757 will of Katherine (Craighead) Homes's brother, Samuel Craighead, merchant of London, shows a certain interesting bequest: "I give to my Niece Martha Cottrole one hundred poundes and to each of her Sons Charles and Joh. Cottrole one hundred pounds."
It seems quite likely this niece is Martha [nee Orr] of Londonderry, Ireland, wife of Colonel John Cottrell, who is stated to have had an eldest son Charles and second son John, the same order as they were named in the Samual Craighead will, above:
Notice that John Cottrell's mother was descended from Lords Dacre and North, and that he also had an ancestor who had served as steward of the household to the Queen of Bohemia (ie., Princess Elizabeth, the daughter of James I & VI).
