  1. Buried 27th September McQuayle, first name missing
  2. Ann has been married twice, evidenced by the different surnames of her two sons
  3. Children Annas, Jonie, Richard, Thomas (Radcliffe)
  4. Oates takes the Ballaugh burial on 16th September of Mclera (first name missing) as Anne's but the 11 days difference between this burial and the date on the will probably makes that assumption incorrect. The earlier burial might be for Donole McIllevrea whose will is not amongst these Oates's Archdeaconal will transcriptions
