1824 Pigot's Directory Stewartstown

A small market, post and fair town in the county of Tyrone, 80 north by west of Dublin, six north
of Dungannon, 11 north of Charlemount, 16 north by west of Armagh, 22 east of Omagh and 32
west by south of Belfast. In the center of the town is the market house over which the petty sessions
are held once a fortnight by the magistrates of the division. Here is also a day school with a salary
of 12l a year to the master allowed by the society for the suppression of vice and a small sum paid
quarterly by the parents of the children. A Sunday school is also held in the same room, which,

although the town is but small, is attended by upwards of 300 children, many of whom are from
the surrounding neighbourhood. A dispensary has been lately established here under the superindendance

of William B. Whittle, surgeon. The places of worship are a Protestant church, a Presbyterian and a
Seceding meeting house and a Catholic chapel. About two miles from the town is Stewart Hall, the
residence of Earl Castle Stewart. James Caulfield, esq. of Muff near Cookstown is proprietor of the

place. The market is held on Wednesday and there are fairs on the Wednesday after the 12th of March,
May 1st, November 1st and September 10th.
