Below are my notes from reviewing the Lisburn Presbyterian Church Registers as well as Fultons I found in the Killinchy Presbyterian Church Registers who are closely related to the Lisburn Fultons. Many of the records I found are also documented in Hope's book. However a number including those immediately following are not mentioned in Hope's book. Although the Lisburn Presbyterian Church Registers exist from 1692 there are many missing pages and large gaps including the entire years from 1764 through 1778 and from 1827 through 1844, so there are likely more Fultons from the Lisburn group that are not recorded.
I know that Sir Theodore Hope did not include all the Fultons connected to the Lisburn group in his book and charts. For example, in addition to the Fultons in Hope’s book listed in the Lisburn Presbyterian Church Registers, I found the following additional Fultons in those same registers that Hope doesn’t mention, but clearly would appear to be closely related:
Hope seems to have missed the entry of a birth of a James Walter Fulton baptized on Sept. 1, 1752, a son of Robert Fulton (This Robert must be the Robert Coulson Fulton in Hope's book).
Thomas Fulton of Magheralave
son Thomas bapt Dec. 19, 1779
son Joseph bapt Aug 18, 1782
then a Thomas Fulton but of Chappell Hill who I am guessing is the same man as above
dau Jane bapt March 9, 1785
son George bapt Oct. 7, 1788, married Jean Fulton in 1803
then a Thomas Fulton, but of Bow Lane, again, I am guessing the same man as above
son Joseph bapt March 31, 1790 (assuming elder son Joseph died if this is same Thomas)
dau Elizabeth bapt June 11, 1793
William Fulton of Knockmore
dau Margaret bapt June 12, 1797
John Fulton of Cornmarket (probably a son of Thomas above born before 1779 - a long gap in Lisburne Presby Reg before 1779)
son Thomas bapt June 14, 1796
then John Fulton of Belfast Gate (again I assume this is same as above but he moved)
dau Maria bapt Aug. 28, 1798
then John Fulton of Bow Lane (same logic as above)
son William bapt July 25, 1802
dau Ann bapt April 5, 1805
then John Fulton of Chappel Hill (same logic as above assuming same man)
son Richard bapt March 29, 1808
son George bapt April 4, 1811
dau Jane bapt August 29, 1813
dau Elizabeth bapt January 31, 1816.

Fultons in the Lisburn Presbyterian Church Vestry Book 1777 – 1823:
What looks like a tithe list for 1767 lists a John Fulton and a James Fulton.
Lists for 1776 through 1779 show John Fulton and Richard Fulton listed under heading “in town”. No Fultons listed under heading “country”.
1781 list John Fulton, Richard Fulton and now Joseph Fulton.
A 1779 list of subscriber to retire some sort of Church debt are listed:
John Fulton 5 13 9
Richard Fulton 3 8 3
Joseph Fulton 2 5 6
1782 tithe list: Richard, Joseph, James and Thomas Fulton are listed as “in town”. John Fulton is gone. 1 Fulton is listed under heading “country” but the first name column of the page is torn off.
1783 - 1787 tithe lists: Richard, Joseph and James Fulton of Joseph “in town”. James Fulton “in town” but with a line through it, perhaps meaning he was there and then was gone, moved or died. Thomas Fulton “country”. Thomas was gone by 1785.
1807 - 1810 tithe list: Richard, Robert, James, Andrew, and Joseph Fulton “in town”. No Fultons “in country”.
1811 – 1811 tithe list: Same as above except addition of Lieut. William Fulton.

Killinchy Parish County Down Fultons: I found another group of Fultons not mentioned in Hope’s book, but definitely linked to them. See page 33 of Hope’s book. Here he discusses a Richard Fulton and lists his first son as Robert, born 1777. He then lists three sons of Robert; Joseph, James, and Robert, but ends the tree there. In the information about Richard he quotes an obituary entry in the Belfast Newsletter of April 27, 1823 as follows; "At Killinchy, on the 9th inst., in his 70th year, Mr. Richard Fulton, late of Lisburn, Merchant." I researched the Parish registers of the Presbyterian Church at Killinchy and found children and grandchildren of Robert listed as outlined below. In addition, all these Fulton’s disappear by 1850 for the area. To America maybe?
Below are the entries for the Killinchy Presbyterian Church Register that clearly appear to be a continuation of the family listed on page 33 of Hope’s book.
Sept 24, 1824, James son of Robert Fulton of Ballymaccarran to Sarah Mallent of Ardmillam, in the presence of Mathw Fulton of Killimore and Robert Fulton of Ballymaccarran.
