NOTES

  1. COLBY
  2. Catherine Mylroie als Kneale was the third wife of Robert Mylroie, son of David Mylroie jnr & Catherine Quayle
  3. David Mylroie had settled land on Robert, probably as recognition that this son had cared for his parents in their old age
  4. This document reveals that the Mylroie estate had been encumbered to the tune of £100 in 1860, presumably by Robert who died in 1869
  5. Catherine took out another mortgage in 1870, a year after Robert died for £22, and sold znoher part of her inheritance from Robert in 1874
  6. However, Catherine's actions were not sufficient to overcome the debt she had been left with, and by 1881 she owed £188/10/0
  7. This current document is not a surrender in fact, but the outcome of a forced sale of the property, which just happened to have been purchased by the trustees of the Lodge to whom she was in debt, in their own name and not as the trustees of the Lodge
