The will of Alexander Burrows d 1834, mentions several properties being left to his children. There are at least two other Alexander Burrows descendants- or other possible relatives- from this same area, of a similar time period. I believe that "Drumaderanaghna" is "Drumderalena" or Drum. There were two Alexander Burrows that may have descended and lived in Drum and/or Carrowcrin, one was Coroner ( m Ismina ? ) who died in 1882, while the other died in 1889 (m Fanny Elliot).
Perhaps others may find of this information helpful, or know more about each of these men! It would be great to find his marriage settlements.
I believe that my 3rd great grandmother was one his daughters, Ismina Jane, her marriage settlement to Robert White, of Whitehall, Tullycoly, mentions Alexander Burrowns and Thomas Irwin, who may have been acting as conservators.
Here is my transcription of the will from 1834:
