In researching my family history, I've found that the Cull surname is predominantly found in two counties, Down and Leitrim. My family comes from Clonallon and Kilbroney in Down. Does anyone know the history of the Cull families in Leitrim? I know that there was a migration of many families from Armagh and Down to Leitrim (and to other places in Connacht) during the 1790s when the Catholic Defenders were fighting the Peep o'Day Boys, especially after the Battle of the Diamond. There's even a monument to those displaced families near Bencroy. Is there a connection between the Leitrim Culls and those from Down??Ultach monument Leitrim

  • Hi Brian,

    The below link mentions Patrick Cull and his family details - it might be of interest to you. If I find any other information I will post it.

  • Hi Brian. I’ve got Cull’s from Leitrim in my family tree. Michael Edward Cull b 1836 in Leitrim to Thomas  Cull (b 1805 & d ~1880) and Catherine Murray. Edward married Mary Dunn in 1866 in Illinois USA. I know nothing about the family sadly.
