NOTES

  1. Ballacorraige
  2. Nicholas jnr received the Ballacorraige estate through his Marriage Contract, and Nick's Fields would have been part (or even all) of that estate
  3. This particular field was originally mortgaged in 1789 for £32, and now again in 1806 for £42; in 1824, the debt stood at £45/11/- and Cowley had sold the mortgage on to Thomas Kelly. The debt was settled in 1825 by the guardians of William Mylrea, grandson of Nicholas Mylrea jnr and son and heir to his father's "estate", his father having died in 1816
  4. This document should be read in conjunction with another mortgage, dated 1825, in which the guardians of William Mylrea borrowed £284
