NOTES

  1. Ballacorraige
  2. The minor, William Mylrea, was the older son and heir-at-law of William Mylrea of Ballacorraige who drowned in 1816, leaving the family in a parlous state financially
  3. Pressed for funds, his mother had applied to the Court of Chancery in 1828 for permission to sell the family's estate or at least part of it. This sale to Keig represents her subsequent action
  4. The major mortgagee, Thomas Kelly, should have been repaid after this sale but his receipt is dated 1851
  5. Soon after this sale, William again applied to the Courts for a guardian, and this was the last record of the family on the Isle of Man
