NOTES

  1. No marriage record found. This might have been a second marriage for William since William mention an extra children (Mabel) in his will
  2. No burial record for Ann, but a record of Kat: (Katherine?) Woods als Mylrea buried 11th Jan 1662
  3. Presumably since John & Jane carry the MCYLREA surname, they are William's
  4. Husband William died the following year
  5. Husband William must have been the son of Margaret Callister because he mentions a son in law (William Steane) & a Mabel whom Ann does not mention in her will
  6. Mabel Mcylrea (b1616) married William Stephan and 1643 Composition Book for Oristall in Michael shows lands were often jointly held between the two Williams - McYlrea/Stephan & William's son John
  7. Ann's husband William might have been the father of Hugh (1615), Mable (1616), Rich (1619), John (1626)
