  2. Catherine Mylroie als Kneale was the third wife of Robert Mylroie, son of David Mylroie jnr & Catherine Quayle
  3. In 1833, David Mylroie jnr settled land on Robert, probably as recognition that this son had cared for his parents in their old age
  4. Robert mortgaged the property in 1860 for £100 and a year after his death, Catherine took a further mortgage for £22, as she had inherited the land in Robert's will
  5. Catherine also sold part of her inheritance from Robert in 1874, a house and garden in which Robert lived before his death and which he had left to Catherine and his daughter, Eunice, from his second marriage
  6. Things did not end happily, with the estate being forcibly sold in 1885 when the debt had blown out to £188/10/0
