Secundum forman legis


  1. Appears not to have had a family, except for brother John
  2. Malew burial record for a William Macyllriah 3rd January (1657)- if it's him - places him with the rest of the Mylrea clan of the time although where is unknown
  3. There is much about the Malew Mylreas of the 1600s and early 1700s that does not hang together so extreme caution must be exercised
  4. For further insights into the Malew Mylreas, please refer to Mylreas in Ballaquaile and Fildraw
