NOTES

  1. Mylrea's Terrace, Laxey
  2. William Mylrea jnr was the only known surviving son of William Mylrea snr & Ann Fargher, and born 1811 in Lonan
  3. William jnr and Jane Killip married in Lonan in 1838
  4. They had 9 children, 4 of whom were named in their joint will in 1883
    • Ann 1838-1851
    • Thomas 1841
    • Jane 1843, married John James Taylor, a miner
    • William 1845-1851
    • Margaret 1848, married James Crowe, a miner
    • Isabella 1850-1852
    • William 1852
    • Isabella 1854-1856
    • John 1857-1877
  5. Their youngest son John was listed as a scholar in the 1871, perhaps an indication that this child was destined for a future beyond the lead mines, at which his two older brothers were already working. Sadly, the boy died when he was 19
  6. William jnr lived in Laxey Glen was was variously described as a hatter or a farmer
  7. This is the second of two mortgages that William jnr took in 1850 which combined totalled £52. In both cases, the land being mortgaged was Crott Balljean, an estate that came into the family from Jane's parents via her Marriage Contract in 1838
  8. In 1850 William jnr also sold two pieces of land for a total of just over £100
  9. In sequence these transactions were Mortgage (Feb), Sale (March), Sale (May), Mortgage (Dec), and all in the year William's father died, so perhaps William jnr was making a rather swift transition from farming land to village land
  10. William jnr & Jane became prosperous and were able to leave houses and lands to their children. Unfortunately only 4 of their 9 offspring lived to adulthood to share in their good fortune
