COAT OF ARMS
The family of Greer in the North of England derive their ancestry from the Clan MacGregor in Scotland from which Clan the Griersons of Lag Dumfrieshire claim to be descended. However from ancient and authentic documents in the possession of the compiler of the following Genealogical Table it appears that they were originally one and the same family. Sir Will GriersonKin died about the year 1629 from which time the family of Lag seem to have made an alteration in their surname calling themselves Grier instead of Grierson for some generations. We find that James Greer fro whom the Irish branch sprang resided in Nag ___________land the adjacent County to Dumfries in the year 1.33 and from the aforesaid documents we learn that he was a member of the family of Lag and probably removed from the parent Stock about the period of the change of the name from Grierson to Greer which after(?) name his son Henry, who was a younger son brought with him to Ireland, and which name was retained by the elderbranches of the family there while some of the younger branches assumed the name of Greeves, which proness to change of name they appear to have inherited from their progenitors the Griersons.
Henry Greer, son of James & Mary Greer of the Rock near Almswick Northumberland married Mary Turner, daughter of Robert & Deborah Turner of Turnerstown in Northumberland and settled at Newton, Parish of Schoolbittle, Northern Ireland where their eldest son James was born in April 1653 and the same year removed to and settled at Radford near Orange Co.

The emigration of the two brothers-in-law Henry Greer and Thomas Turner with their respective families to Ireland, took place during the Commonwealth of England _ a period when the people were much disturbed and greatly excited with regards to religious matters and it appears that the new settlers almost immediately ______ry soon after their arrival in this country joined the then new Sect ( the Society of Friends commonly called Quakers.) This sect first made its appearance in Ireland in the year 1654 having been
Introduced into the country by William Edmondson, who from being a soldier in Cromwells Army became a convert to Quakerism. It is stated in the early records of the Society that this old Cromwellian soldier resigned from the profession of Arms in 1652 and having a brother in Ireland he removed there with his wife and settling at Antrum commenced shop keeping. In the 1653 going to England to purchase goods he met with George Fox and James Naylor and being converted by the preaching of the former (the founder of the new Sect) he joined it and was the first who professed and promogulated what was called the new doctrine in Ireland, although the Friends themselves proclaimed it to be primitive Christianity. In 1654 Edmondson removed from Antrim to the County Armagh and being poud? By a few persons held a meeting in his house in Lurgan which was the first meeting settled in the County. In the year 1656 we find he departed from thence with a number of Friends to reside in the County Cavan leaving the meeting well established, among it these who accompanied him from the County Armagh was Richard and Anthony Jackson from the latter of whom my mother Elizabeth Jackson otherwise Greer is descended. Like the patriarchs of old these early Friends were much addicted to
Locomotions, as I find that Wm. Edmondson again in 1659 changed his residence and settled in or near Mountmelick carrying along with him several friends and amongst others Richard Jackson while his brother Anthony removed with other friends at the near settlement in the Co. CCaaron. Henry Greer and his family must have joined the Society sometime about the period as I find that a meeting was established at range near Charlemont on the year 1660 and I observe the names of Henry Greer and his brother-in-law Thomas Turner frequently mentioned in the early records of the Society and also in the accounts of what the Quakers emphatically term sufferings, that is having their goods destroyed and carried away for the payment of Tithes. The last mentions I find made of Henry is in the year 1673 and in the year 1677 there appears one entry of the goods of Mary Greer, with of said Henry as having been taken for Tithe, this circumstance established the fact that Henry Greers' death took place in the intermediate space of time, that is between the years 1673 & 1677. The same account states that the goods of Thomas Turner were taken at various times from 1671 to 1681 for Tithe. The first mention made of James Greer having been a sufferer on a similer account is in the year 1678 this being the year of his marriage and removed from his father's or then his mother's house at Radford Co. Tyrone & Tusacurran Co. Largan Co. Armagh. In the year 1681 Robert Greer had goods taken from him for Tithe (this Robert was second son of Henry). It would be foreign to the subject to enter into no/so? disqu (can't read) on the religious scruples of the Quakers against the payment of Tithes or on any other of their singularities for if they stand open to the charge of fanaticism which certainly appeared in some instances on their commandment as a religious body still we should remember that they _______ _______ alone in the respect as it is a matter of history that the other seeds of the day (it being a time fruitful in new goods and wild notions) carried their excesses to as great endeavor greater extremes than they did. It is however only justice to remark that if the Friends still return some pecularities both as to doctrine and practice that may be considered hetrodoic by other professing Christians, yet we must give them credit for possessing many wholesome rules and regulations. One very laudable one is the care they take of the poor which they do not suffer to become burdensome to any, not even to the country at large. We may therefore take leave of the subject with a quotation from the words of an eminent ___?, but it must be acknowledged not a very faithful one.
"And yet perhaps, if Religious we compare
And estimate the foibles which they share
Though Priests may differ still shall candour find
A liberal portion possessed by all mankind."
The foregoing genealogy was compiled by me on the year 1824 from authentic documents which were in the possession of my Grandfather and Mothers, and after the elapse of Thirty One years. I have only found it necessary to add a few inconsistants? Which have since taken place in my own immediate branch and one or two others and now in the Sixty fifth year of my age when the "Gilding has been worn off the Gingerbread" and when life appears in the true colours, I bequeath it to my children in the hope that they may endeavour to emulate the virtues of the few good___?/ _______? The faults of the few doubtful characters which appear in the catalogue, the greatest proportion being of that class which if nothing good is recorded of them neither is there anything bad.
