pbatu est


  1. No surviving burial records for Michael before 1610, & her will says she died 30th Dec 1600
  2. Husband Thomas, brothers in law (?) John and Donald mentioned in her will
  3. Avrick CANNELL, wife of John Mylrea, was probably the other Mylrea mentioned in her will. She and husband John sold land in Michael in 1603
  4. In 1597, Thomas Mcylrea and Ann Moore sold land in Michael to John Cannell. Subsequent sales in 1602 and 1607 saw Thomas pass over their Quarlerland in the treen of Balycrynan, bit by bit
  5. Liber Vastarum 1608 observes: Thoms Mcylrea being sicke and unable of himself to manure the ground hath in the presencse of divers witnesses sould out his whole interest thereof for evr unto John Cannell
