There was a Rev John Shaw in 1st Ballynahinch Presbyterian Church during the period concerned.
1st Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch
The Ordnance Survey Memoirs of 1836 describe it as a plain, slated, roughcast, rectangular building with 3 galleries; there were 100 regular attendants then when Rev. Shaw was the minister; he lived at The Spa, near Ballynahinch and was minister from 1831-1870.
