Probatum est

Thos Cubbon


  1. Jane Mylrea married Philip Radcliffe in Ballaugh 4th November 1766; John was from Andreas & Jane from Ballaugh
  2. Presumably she was born around 1740-1745; no record of birth so might have been a Mylrea widow prior to marriage to Philip but more likely the daughter of John Mylrea (Summner of Ballaugh) & Joney Kinread
  3. Their children were born in Andreas:
    • daughter Jane b1768 (so over 40 when her mother died)
    • son John born b1772
    • son William b1775; he must have died to be left from his mother's will
  4. Husband Philip probably died 1801. His will names children Jane & John (and a William Mylrea)
