  • Notes 
    • According to the diary his son, John McClure "was shut up in Londonderry at the age of 7 years, with his parents, at the time when it was besieged by an army of papists commanded by King James 2nd & suffered all the horrors of famine." This would be a reference to the Siege of Derry, 18 Apr to 28 Jul 1689, in which over 4000 Protestants out of a population of 8000 died.
