MAP 15 This map shows the townlands around Laurelvale, Co. Armagh.
The village of Laurelvale was created in the 1850's when Thomas Sinton started his first linen mill, building the factory and all the houses for himself, the managers and workers. His residence was named 'Laurelvale House' and gave the name to the village. The earliest mention of the Sintons in Ireland is associated with the townland of Unshinagh with later Sintons living in Drumnakelly, Tamnavelton, Mullavilly and Tamnaghmore. In 2004 there are seven Sinton families living in the area shown on this map. Laurelvale in no longer an industrial village, since the mill closed in the 1940's, and while the area still has a mainly agricultural base it has become a quiet residential retreat with more than two hundred privately owned houses built in the last twenty-five years.
For details of some of the headstone inscriptions at Mullavilly Parish Church see Mullavilly.
