Peter,

Thanks for all of your extractions from the Fishmongers' Company records. Given the pending end of the LDS church microfilm lending program in August 2017, I have been considering ordering a few reels of the Fishmongers' records, but wouldn't know where to start among the 77(!) reels.

To your knowledge, are there any records from the 1600s with regard to the planter families that were brought into the Plantation of Ulster? In particular, I am interested in tracing the McCunn/McConn family back to Scotland, and have hit a dead end in County Londonderry in 1662.

Any recommendations on which Fishmongers reels to target (or avoid) for original leases from the 17th or 18th centuries would be appreciated. Thanks!

Unfortunately it has been 8 years since I went through some of the films so my familiarity of them is gone; that is outside of my notes.  The only thing I can say is one has to trust the film descriptions given at https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/754514?availability=Family%20History%20Library.  They generally deal with the period the description gives.

Best wishes!
