Annahugh, County Armagh

Origin

Ir. Eanach Aodha ‘Hugh’s marsh’

Background

Annaghhugh appears on the 1609 map, beside Annaboe and Ballywilly [Ballimully]. The ‘b'bo Anagh-Hugh’ is excepted from a 1610 grant to A Cope of 21 townlands of Dirrichreeny, and the 1657 church inquisition selects ‘Anaghue townland’ and the ‘half tn Kyddymore’ as glebe for Kilmore: the Book of Survey and Distribution BSD and the Ordnance Survey Name Book OSNB repeat that Annaghhewe was glebe land.  The townland appears twice in the 1664 Hearth Money roll: Anaghhow (presumably the southern end, +Ballymony) where Tomson and Hobbs were liable, Annaghhew (the northern end, +Tullaghmore), hearth money payable by O'Dowan. PSAMNI 63 thinks a large fort here was the origin of the name Castleraw qv.
