  1. Ballacorraige
  2. The Flatt was part (or all) of the original Mylrea estate, established by the father of Nicholas jnr; presumably it was also referred to as Nick's Flatt or Nicholas Mylrea's Flatt; it has been previously mortgaged in 1789 to Thomas Tear for £32
  3. Even though it was mortgaged to James Taubman, the Flatt continued to be used by the Mylreas
