Will - 1700 (Ballaugh)

The last will and testament of Ann Mylrea als Kneen who was then in perfect memory and was buried the 4th day of November 1700.

First she committed her soul to God and her body to Christian burial. Item she left to her mother half a heifer.

Item she left to her sister Jony her linen and woollen, meaning (to the best of our apprehension) her shaped clothes with half the flax.

Only left two shillings to her brother William in money or the worth of …. in corn.
Witnesses … Gawne, William Cowley
