NOTES

  1. Mylrea's Terrace, Laxey
  2. William Mylrea snr (the elder) was the third and youngest son of Edward Mylrea & Dorothy Fargher als Kewley, and born 1780 in Lonan
  3. He was a tailor, and married first Ann Fargher in 1804, and the couple had 5 children; after Ann died, he married Anne Cowley als Gelling in 1840 and had 1 child
  4. William Mylrea jnr (the younger) was the only known surviving son of William Mylrea snr & Ann Fargher als Kewley, and born 1811 in Lonan
  5. He was a hatter and married Jane Killip in Lonan in 1838
  6. In this sale, father and son are selling off the lands that William snr had purchased in 1806 & 1812, keeping a row of houses that might have become Mylrea's Terrace in Laxey Glen
  7. William snr died a few months after this sale took place. During the year two pieces of Mylrea land were sold for a total of just over £100, and William jnr also took two mortgages totalling £52, so he might have been restructuring his holdings from farm land to village land and investing in his village houses
  8. 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
