R.Jebb

NOTES

  1. Ballaraugh
  2. William was the older son of John Mylroie & Ann Quilleash. He was born in Lonan in 1845
  3. There is nothing to indicate what William was doing in Spain while his parents and brother continued to live in Lonan. Perhaps he was a mariner although he was listed as a blacksmith's apprentice in the 1861 census
  4. Administration of the estate appears to have been granted to William's brother, John jnr. However, it was his father John who applied to the Court to become administrator of this estate and his brother, John jnr, who was a pledge. So his worship might simply have confused the two Johns.
