pbatu est


  1. No surviving burial records for Michael before 1610, & her will says she died 30th Dec 1600
  2. Husband Thomas, brothers in law (?) John and Donald, so perhaps the Ballatersin Mylreas in Ballaugh? But equally, the Dollough & Ballacooiley families also had a Donald & John of similar vintages so without additional information it's not possible to make the links (if any) to other Mylrea families
  3. Other surviving records show
    • Averick CRY, wife of Donald McYlrea, whose estate was in Ballatersin in Ballaugh. She died in 1625
    • Averick CANNELL, wife of John Mylrea, who together sold land in Michael in 1603, so perhaps the more likely Averick mentioned in Ann's will
  4. In 1597, a Thomas Mcylrea with wife Ann sold land in Michael to John Cannell, Thomas & Ann signing sale document. A subsequent 1602 sale to Cannell listed only Thomas, with only Thomas signing the sale document
  5. A third sale in 1607 from Thomas to Cannell notes 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 Liber Vastarum 1608
