  1. No marriage record found, nor baptisms of children but they seem to be Mabel (married William Stephan), Alice & William
  2. In 1650, son William's name was entered into Liber Vatarum against his mother's lands: Entered beinge right heyre to the said Margarett deceased his mother
  3. Will of William Mylrea d1654 mentions son in law William Steane so could William Mylrea, widower of Margaret Callister, also have been the widower of Ann Woods? What works against that idea is that William Mylrea & Ann Woods had a son in 1645 while Margaret Callister was still aive
  4. William's daughter Mabel (b1616) married William Stephan and land records for Michael shows lands were often jointly held between the two Williams - McYlrea/Stephan
