NOTES

  1. Presumably Ann, Thomas's wife, had died some time after the original 1597 contract and before the current contract dated 1602. An Ann Mylrea als Moore died in 1600, and her will mentioned a husband Thomas
  2. Thomas undertook 3 transactions with John Cannell in the course of about 10 years
  3. Notation in Liber Vastarum 1608: Thoms Mcylrea being sicke and unable of himself to manure the ground hath in the presencse of divers witnesses sould out his whole interest thereof for evr unto John Cannell in considecon of [pfower?] pounds of mony viz ten shillinge thereof payd alreadie unto him, other thirtie shillings to be payd before Sunday next after this entry and the last fourtie shillings to be payd at or before Michaelmas next. The names of the witnesses psent at this bargaine were John Halsall, Willm Cayne, Finlo Quaill and others
  4. The Manorial Roll for Michael in 1515 shows 4 McGilreas living there: Richard, John, William, & Fynlo - more than in other other parish at the time
  5. In the 1600s, several Mylreas from Michael left wills although whether they were of Thomas's family is unknown:
    • 1595 Johanis Mc ilrea (children William, Johns, Jonet, Donald, Johanis)
    • 1628 Richard (children Thomas, William & Bahie)
    • 1634 Madge Tear als Mylrea
    • 1637 Joney Cannel als Mylrea
    • 1649 Margaret Mylrea als Callister (children William, Ales)
    • 1654 Willliam Mylrea (children Mabel, John, Jane, Richard)
    • 1684 Hugh (only refers to wife)

Associated Documents

The following land transactions are the only ones surviving for the Mylreas in Michael in the 1600s and have been put together in case someone can make a link between the families. There's a group of 3 relating to Thomas, another 4 relating to John (athough at vastly different times) and 2 for Hugh. However this does not imply generations of the same family - 3 by Thomas McYlrea are for the same person although how he might relate to the subsequent Mylreas is unknown.
