  • Notes 
    • Early Presbyterian Congregations in Ireland, list of ministers and congregations, from History of Congregations of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland by W.D. Killen...from The Scotch Irish Families of America: The Adair Manuscript, p. 374: Cairncastle, County Antrim 1646-1674
      "Mr. Adair was Scotchman of highly respectable parentage. From boyhood he took an interest in ecclisiastical affairs: and on the 23rd July 1637, when the famous Janet Geddes threw the stool at the Dean of Ediburgh as he was proceeding to introduce the Service Book, and when the promoters of the Liturgy were balked by a mob of women, Patrick Adair was in the Scottish metropolis, and a witness of the uproar. When liscenced, he came over to Ireland as a preacher, and on the 7th of May 1646, he was ordained to the pastoral charge of the parish of Cairncastle, near Larne, in the county of Antrim. In 1674 he was removed from Cairncastle to Belfast, where he officiated about 20 years. For nearly half a century he was a minister of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland."
