      Apologies for taking so long to reply.
      Try http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie use both the 1901 and 1911 options, just type in surname and Co Londonderry
      this will give you a list.some Castledawson, some Upperlands, also a linen village.
      also http://www.discovereverafter.com this is a graveyard search for names, again surnameshows 2 in Castledawson.

      I know they is a Rbt Alexander Mackrell buried in Desertmartin 18th Sept 1981 aged 70 wife Sarah
