Does anyone have information on John CAISTILL who died in Bride in 1798? The buriel entry reads 'perished in a farm pit in his own estate, Ballakameen (?) Farm, Bride'.

He married Catherine Kneal in 1786, also in Bride, and I have found 3 children born to them - Thomas, Isabella and John - but can't seem to trace the family line back further. I understand John snr.'s father is Thomas Caistill but as there are a number of Thomas's listed I've reached an impasse.

Any information on this family and Ballakameen Farm would be appreciated.
