  •  Notes 
    • This list comprises the names of 3,808 Donegal supporters for the Act of Union, which was proposed to tie Ireland completely to England.  This list was transcribed and compiled by Malcolm from editions of the Belfast Newsletter between 31 Dec 1799 and 17 Jan 1800.  Below are the names, in alphabetical order, along with the supporter's townlands.  In compiling this list, Malcolm observed that many of the major landowners, who all belonged to the established Church of Ireland or the Catholic hierarchy, were foremost in their support and brought along the support of their tenants and congregations for good measure.  When viewed by townland name, groupings become clearer. Where there was no apparent support, for instance from the Marquis of Abercorn, few of his tenants appear on the list.
