Notes: This is a surprising source of family information. The date entered is given along with the age of the student at that time. Further, the father is listed in many cases along with the County of residence. The Cullens of Leitrim appear frequently.
'Pen' means pensioner, but this seems to have had a meaning other than the modern definition.

The Memoirs are a detailed history of the northern half of Ireland during the times immediately preceding the Famine. They document a wide range of topics for the area including geography, land-holdings, population, cities, buildings, local history, employment, and local market information. There are even details concerning zoology and climate. Taken as a whole, the Memoirs are indispensable as a source of information for creating an image of the life and times of those who lived in this part of the country in the early 1800's. The Cullen family is mentioned and, as can be expected, they were members of the Manorhamilton group of Cullen families. Many of the names will be recognized and do appear in the Pedigree of the Cullen Family, written by David Cullen of Lackagh Lodge about 1860. Mentions of the Cullens appear in the Memoirs in the Union of Manorhamilton, Parishes of Cloonclare, Cloonlogher, and Killasnet, dated April of 1837. Some details extracted from the Memoirs and are as follows:
In the aftermath of the events of 1798, magistrates were appointed to investigate the claims of those who claimed to have suffered at the hands of the French or the Insurgents. In County Sligo, one of the appointed magistrates was Rev. Carnecross Cullen. The other named magistrates were: William Harloe Phibbs, Esq., Arthur Irwin, Esq., Rev. Charles West, and Rev. W. Duke. Their first meeting was held on September 30, 1799. Rev. Carn Cross Cullen was also Captain of the Manorhamilton Corps of Cavalry. An address and reply from the Sligo Journal of August 23'rd, 1805 was provided as an illustration in The History of Sligo:
To the Rev. CARN CROSS CULLEN, Captain of the Manorhamilton Corps of Cavalry.
(Signed by Order)
PATRICK GREGG, Pt. Sergt.

To the Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and Privates of the Manorhamilton Corps of Yeomen Cavalry.
I have the Honour to be, Gentlemen,
Your faithful and assured humble Servant,

Capt. Manorhamilton Cavalry.
