Lowtown, County Antrim

Origin

E. Low + E. Town

Background

This is an English name which probably refers to the location of the townland, in a position further south in relation to another townland, Hightown. It is likely that this townland previously had an Irish name, although the sole historical form attributed here appears to belong to the nearby townland of Craiginorne.
