McLaughlin Origins - Part 2

When I look up the 1659 Census of Ireland for Longford, I find six baronies.  I believe the key to understanding where these are located is to be able to somehow cross reference the baronies with the locations of today.  See the bottom of this post for baronies for County Longford.

I located a barony map online.  It looks like Edgeworthstown is in Ardagh Barony and Ringowny probably was too.  I have now discovered the spelling of Ringowny on Google maps is indicated without an "e" before the "y".  I am not sure where I found the spelling but I do have some corrections to make in my information.

Back to the census information.  Below I've placed the chart that I found online of the 1659 Census of Ireland.  In Ardagh, I see M'Gloughlin's.  This is an English/British spelling of the name.  I see a Murtagh indicated.  Patrick McLaughlin was married to Bridget Murtagh.

At this point, I have probably hit my wall.  I hope to find more information.  As I go, I'm placing my research notes here for all to see.  I welcome any McLaughlin's to participate in the search for our ancestors!
