  • Notes 
    • SOURCE NOTES:
      Daniel settled in Ahoghill, where he married and raised his family. ( Family tradition associates the McCurdy's with the seige of Londonderry and the battle of Boyne ) and hold the specific tradition that a near ancestor of their own was saved by his mother as a little child at the time of the seige, begin hidden
      by her behind a gate. " It coincides with this tradition that our ancestor, Thomas McCurdy, ( son of this
      Daniel McCurdy) was about four years old at the time of the seige. " A letter dated February 27, 1888, from Daniel McCurdy of the Cairn, Ballintoy shows the same tradition in his branch of the family. He says:
      " I had a tradition from a John McCurdy of Billy that one of our forefathers was a child in the arms of
      the seige of Derry, and was saved by the person who carried it, hiding behind a gate....I also heard that they were the leaders of a great clan and lost considerable property, when they left Bute, which was afterwards forfeited to the government." History tell us that, when the distress of the city had become
      extreme, the gates were opened for the women and children to go out, but that this famished multitude was pushed back in the city, to perish with the rest; then it was, no doubt, that the mother and child
      of our family esaped by hiding behind some gate opening outward.
