Notes
a. Note:   The Irish origin of this name is MacGilimir. SOURCE: email 655, "IrishPedigree: Descendants of Fiachra" Vol 2, pg 564. And from Peter GILMORE: (April 10, 2003) "Your notation on the Irishversion of the name Gilmore is quite incorrect. In both Irish andScots Gaelic, the name means "Son of (the Blessed Virgin) Mary;" inIrish it's Mac Giolla Mhuire, in Scots Gaelic, Mac Gille Mhoire.Obviously, the same name, slightly different spelling and pronunciation. (Trustme, this is the correct spelling.) County Down was home to nativeIrish Gilmores, and also received an influx of Scots Gilmores, as didCounty Antrim, in particular" "Of Dromora" in Dean William Orr's version. Blin's notes say "Of Sion Hill Dromora, C. Down" In a letter August 10, 1940 to Mollie Wright, from James M. Carroll ofDrogheda said that "tradition in our family was that the Gilmores camefrom the Island of Skye which they owned having been dispossessed bythe Clans of McLeod & McLean" they were also cousins of the MacNeilsof Mount Pleasant, Ravensdale, Dundalk" Freeholder records at PRONI show an Alexander GILLMER of Lear, Corduffness, Co. Monaghan leasing land in 1761.
