Captain John Cullen (descended from Cullen Prince of Cumberland in England, who was elected King of Scotland in the tenth year of the tenth Century) came to Ireland with Oliver Cromwell in the year 1648. After the conquest of Ireland he wished to remain in it and Cromwell gave him a grant of land for his services, at the town of Clogher in the County of Tyrone, but disliking the neighbourhood and habits of the people, he disposed of the lands and hearing of a Scotch Colony which had settled at Manorhamilton in the County of Leitrim, he, in the year 1660, came to, and took a long lease of Glenboy, where he afterwards resided, from Sir Ralph Gore, son-in-law of the late Sir Frederick Hamilton.

Said to be a sept of Clan Gordon.
