NOTES

  1. Crowe's analysis of early Braddan land holders "Thomas Mylroi & Ann Mylroi alias Kelly alias Cain his wife, with Jony Kelly & Elinor Kelly her daughters; Ann's right assumed to have been inherited from Gilbert Cain, who held this rent 1671"
  2. From Thomas's will, it would seem that he had no children of his own. Nothing at all is known about him other than that in 1705 he was recorded as occupying allotment 16/08, which was close to allotments occupied by others of the Mylrea clan who had no discernable link to Thomas (See manxroots.info)
