NOTES

  1. COLBY - Ballacosney
  2. John Jame Mylroie was the son of John Mylroie & Ellenor Fargher, who was baptised in 1852 in Lonan
  3. John, the father of John James, died in 1876, leaving his son 23 year old son, John James, as heir at law
  4. Although he was heir at law to Ballacosney, John James was a miner, first in Laxey and later in Whitehaven
  5. Ballacosney had been heavily encumbered by John Mylroie to the tune of £556/14/6 in the years prior to his death which might explain why John James went to the UK and contnued to work as a miner
  6. He married Elizabeth Davidson Hunt in 1885, and had his only son John Isaace Mylroie in 1886
  7. John James died in the UK in 1888 at the age of 35
  8. The mortgage with William Fargher for £55 must have been for the fields purchased by John James from his mother in 1876, not long after his father died
  9. The witness to this document, Thomas Arthur Mylroi, was the younger brother of John James
  10. John Isaac Mylroie, son of John James, sold Ballacosney to Robert Curphey in 1908, perhaps because repayment of the Ballacosney debt now stood at £556/14/6 which was insurmountable or perhaps because the young man had been born and raised in the UK, and was not a farmer
  11. In 1908 Ballacosney passed out of the Mylroie family forever
