(Wife) Will1 June 1803Anne's husband made his will dated 1 June 1803 at Violet Hill, County Meath, naming his wife Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas Hinds and his brother John Gibney, his trustees, and William Gerrard and Thomas Gerrard, the two illegitimate sons of his deceased father-in-law William Gerrard, late of Dormstown, County Meath. A transcription of Michael's will reads:

"In the name of God Amen! I Michael Gibney, late of Dormstown now living at Violet Hill in the County of Meath, Grazier and Farmer being of sound mind and disposing mind do make this my last will and testament revoking all others hitherto made first (if acceptable) I give my soul to the Almighty God who gave ___ (undecipherable). I next desire, that my body be interred (if I die in Ireland) with my friends at Ardmulchan, but if I die in any other part of the world it is my will to be buried in the next common place of burial – and whereas – sometime in the year one thousand seven hundred and ninety four I did perfect articles of intermarriage settlements on my dearest Ann Gerrard, now Gibney, wherein there is mention of my having handed over securities to the trustee therein names (viz. Thomas Hinds of Dublin Esq. and my brother Doctor Gibney) to the amount of three thousand pounds and whereas from circumstances from which I am at present unable to account, I never handed over to the said trustees, the said sum of three thousand pounds or any part thereof… And I make this particular mention of the circumstances lest my children should at any future period demand from said trustees the said sum of three thousand pounds or any part thereof--

My will and desire is that the award respecting the lands of Dormstown, which is at this moment, in a very unsettled way be carried into effect.

The state of the affair is thus –

William and Thomas Gerrard, natural children to my late father in law William Gerrard being under his will in remainder to said lands have agreed to pay me, all that said property was in my debt, which amounted to something more than sixteen hundred pounds, and also to pay me eight hundred and eighty pounds as a compensation for my interest in said lands, in all about two thousand five hundred pounds. My will and desire is that all my lawful debts be paid as soon as conveniently after my dessase [sic].

I will and bequeath to my dearest wife Ann Gerrard, now Gibney, the whole of my freehold in lease hold interests, also all my personal property of what kind so ever it may be, to be by her disposed of among herself and my children by her in whatever manner she may think proper with the condition that if she should choose to marry again that that part belongs to the children be vested in my brother as my trustee for my children, and that she, if she thinks proper may take her dividend of my property to her own sole use, first settling the children’s property.

I appoint my brother John Gibney and Thomas Hinds and Ann Gibney my wife as executors to this my last will and I appoint my said wife Guardian to my children."

His will was signed and sealed by Michael Gibney; and G.W. Forster, Thomas Dickson, and Patt Delany all signed and sealed as witnesses.6

Reciting as therein is recited, and witnessing that said William and Thomas Gerrard, for the considerations therein mentioned, granted, bargained and sold, remised, released and confirmed to said Thomas Hinds (in his possession then being by virtue of the deed and statute therein mentioned) unto his heirs and assigns all that part of the town and lands of Dormstown in as full and ample a manner as the same were formerly in possession of William Gerrard Esq. deceased. Containing by estimation 86 acres, 2 roods and 26 perches situate in the county of Meath aforesaid. To hold from the first day of May then last for the life and lives of the cestui que vies (the three people whose lives measured the duration of this type of lease or trust) in the lease therein of said deed mentioned, and for the lives of all such other persons as should forever be added to the said lease pursuant to the covenant for renewal therein contained, subject to the renewal fines in said lease reserved.

The deed and memorial were signed and sealed by William and Thomas Gerrard, and witnessed by John Gibney of Navan in the county of Meath, physician, and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of Violet Hill in said county, widow. They were registered on 7 April 1804 at about half after 11 o'clock in the forenoon.8
(5th Daughter) Deed Memorial29 April 1814Anne was a participant with others in her extended Gerrard family, on a Memorial deed dated 29 April 1814 that included her niece Eleanora Anne and her husband Thomas Potterton of Ballaghtalion, County Meath, Esq. of the first part, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds of Trim, County Meath, widow and mother of Eleanora Anne, Martha Hinds of Trim, spinster, daughter of Sarah, and John Hinds of the City of Dublin, gentleman and only son of Sarah of Trim of the second part, Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of Eccles Street in the City of Dublin, widow, John Small of Rutland Square in the City of Dublin, Esq. and Catherine (Gerrard) Small, his wife, and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, widow of the third part, the Reverend Mungo Henry Waller of Allenstown in the County of Meath, clerk of the fourth part, and Thomas Hinds of Newtown in County Kildare, Esq. of the fifth part, made a Memorial of an indentured deed agreement. The deed began with a review of four pertinent events: William Gerrard's 1788 will and subsequent 1790 probate, the death of Matthew Hinds, husband of William's daughter Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, before or in 1809, and the 1813 marriage settlement agreement for Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Potterton.

Reciting that William Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, gentleman, deceased, made his will dated 24 December 1788 and thereby, amongst bequests to his other daughters, bequeathed unto the Reverend Singleton Harpur, Robert Waller and James Gibney, his trustees, an amount of £1200 in trust that they and his survivors and the executors and administrators of such survivors, should place out the same at interest and permit his daughter Sarah Hinds to receive the yearly interest for her separate use. And further, that after the death of his daughter Sarah, the trustees, their executors and administrators, should transfer the £1200 to such of Sarah's children as should be then living, and that by her will she should approve and appoint his daughters Rebecca Hinds, Elizabeth, Anne and Catherine Gerrard executors. Reciting further that William Gerrard died without altering his will and that it was proved in the Court of Prerogative Probate granted to Elizabeth Gerrard, Catherine Gerrard, since married to John Small, and Anne Gibney, three of the executors named and that the £1200 bequeathed by the will to Sarah was secured by the bond of Robert Waller, deceased, then of Ministown in the County of Meath, Esq. bearing date of 22 February 1790 with an attorney's warrant for confession of judgment in the final sum of £2400 conditioned for payment of the principal sum of £1200 under the will of William Gerrard upon which Anne Gibney, Rebecca Hinds, John Small and Catherine his wife did, around 1809, obtain a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas against Robert Waller stating that Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah, was since dead leaving his widow Sarah and three children, namely Eleanora Anne, Martha and John Hinds, all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years. Next the deed explained that, by an indented deed of four parts dated 26 August 1813 and made between Thomas Potterton, Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd of the first part, Sarah Hinds of the second part, Eleanora Anne, then Hinds, of the third part, and Henry Potterton, gentleman, and Rebecca Hinds of the fourth part, the deed recited that a marriage was intended shortly to be had between Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, and reciting that £1200 was held in trust for Sarah, mother of Eleanora Anne, and that on the result of the marriage being accomplished, Sarah had agreed that £600 of the £1200 should be payable to Thomas Potterton immediately after Sarah's death; then the agreement witnessed that in consideration of the intended marriage and the £600, Thomas made a provision for Eleanora in case she should outlive him and her issue. The indenture further witnessed a deed in which Sarah, in consideration of the intended marriage, had made provisions for Eleanora Anne and did give, grant and appoint the £600, being one-half of the £1200, to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators and assigns to be payable to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators or assigns immediately after the death her mother, Sarah. Then it was witnessed that the marriage had taken effect and that Thomas Potterton, by virtue of his marriage settlement deed, was entitled to the £600 upon Sarah's decease and that Thomas desired to sell the £600 and had applied to Reverend Mungo Henry Waller who had agreed to the purchase. Thomas had agreed to accept £400, which Mungo had agreed to pay to him. The other parties to the deed had agreed to ratify and confirm the purchase and to relinquish to Mungo all their right, title and claim in default of an appointment by Sarah, or in case of the decease of any or all of her children in her lifetime, or in case Sarah should execute her power of appointment so as to otherwise disappoint Thomas and Eleanora Anne or their issue of the £600 or of any part thereof. The indenture witnessed that, upon execution of the agreement and in consideration of the £400 paid by Mungo to Thomas Potterton, and of £1 apiece paid to Eleanora Anne Potterton, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, Martha Hinds, John Hinds, Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, John and Catherine (Gerrard) Small and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas and Eleanora Potterton, Sarah, Martha and John Hinds, did grant, bargain and assign, and Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small, and Anne Gibney confirmed unto Mungo H. Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns, the principal sum of £600, and reciting that by deed and Memorial, Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small and Anne Gibney did assign to Thomas Hinds as trustee, his executors, administrators and assigns, a judgment. It was thereby declared that the £600 was invested with Thomas Hinds in trust as to £600 and the interest thereof from the death of Sarah Hinds for Mungo H. Waller and the interest due and to grow due on the fact of the judgment in trust for Sarah Hinds, her executors, administrators and assigns for life. And after her decease, as to the monies secured by the judgment above, £600 for the person or persons whom Sarah should appoint. The deed and Memorial was signed and witnessed by each of the parties involved on various dates, and was registered on 4 May 1814.4
Will*13 December 1817Anne made her will dated 13 December 1817 naming her deceased husband Michael, their children, William, Mary Anne, Frances Eliza, Eliza and James, and her husband's trustees Thomas Hinds and Michael's brother John Gibney. A transcription of Anne's will read:

"In the name of God Amen! I Anne Gibney, widow of Michael Gibney, late of Dormstown in the County of Meath do make this my last will and testament. Whereas by a certain deed of settlement hearing date the fourth day of July, one thousand seven hundred and ninety four my said beloved husband did agree to invest the sum of three thousand pounds, part of my fortune therein mentioned in Thomas Hinds and John Gibney, therein mentioned, and the survivor of them, his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns to, for and upon such uses, trusts, and purposes as therein mentioned. And by said deed, it is agreed that in case the said Michael should die in my life time, leaving more than one child living of our marriage, that it should be lawful for me to devise said three thousand pounds or the rents, interest or produce thereof to and among such children, in such shares as I should appoint and for want of such appointment to be equally divided among each children. And whereas the said Michael Gibney disposed of said sum of three thousand pounds to such uses as he thought proper, without handing over the same to the said trustees, or either of them. And in order, as far as in him lay, to secure the said sum of three thousand pounds pursuant to the intent of said recited settlement, did by deed, dated the eighth of October, eighteen hundred and three, assign all his interest in and to the lands and premises therein mentioned to said Thomas Hinds and John Gibney, and the survivor of them, his executors, administrators and assigns, for the terms of lives and years by the leases thereof, granted to, and for the uses and purposes therein particularly mentioned. And whereas the said Michael Gibney is since dead, having made and published his last will and testament (all in his own handwriting) and after mentioning therein, that he had not handed over said three thousand pounds to the before named trustees. He after desiring his lawful debts to be paid, devised to me all his freehold and leasehold interests, as also all his personal property, to be disposed of, to and among myself and children as therein mentioned but by said will made no specific appointment of said three thousand pounds.

Now, I therefore, in case of the property so left, and devised shall extend therets [sic], (the rest?) give and devise onto my eldest son William Gibney M.D. twenty pounds, to purchase some trifle to remind him of me. It is not from want of the greatest affection for him, he ever and always deserved my warmest love and approbation, but he knows, and approves of the disposal of my property amongst the rest of my children. I give and bequest to my beloved Mary Anne Gibney five hundred pounds there out and to my beloved Francis Eliza Gibney, five hundred pounds thereout. And to my beloved Eliza Gibney, five hundred pounds thereout. And to my beloved son James Gibney, three hundred pounds thereout. But, if before I die, he the said James Gibney, should procure (thro: the interest of his Uncle Gibney or other relatives) a permanent situation so as to enable him to do without it, I devise him (like his brother William) to give up all right to what I leave him to his three sisters, Maryanne, Francis Eliza and Eliza Gibney, said respective legacies to be paid my sons and daughters, upon their attaining the age of twenty one years, or days of marriage, which shall first happen, And it is my will and desire that in case the property, wherein of my said husband has died possessed of, shall not extend to the entire sum of three thousand pounds, the share, or proportion of each of my said children, shall bear a proportion of such diminution, thereof as may happen. And it is also my will that in case any of my children shall die before attaining his, her or their respective ages, as aforesaid, or being married, then the share of his, her or them so dying shall go and be divided amongst such survivors and share alike and I do hereby constitute my said three daughters Maryanne, Frances Eliza and Eliza Gibney or the survivors of them as the case may be, residuary legates of all such worldly substance as I shall possessed of. And I do also nominate my brother-in-law John Gibney Esq. M.D. and my son William Gibney Esq. M.D. Executors of this my will. In (page part torn off) witness whereof I set my hand and seal this thirteenth day of December one thousand eight hundred and seventeen."

Her will was signed and sealed by Anne Gibney; and her sister Catherine (Gerrard) Small, her sister's husband John Small, and J. Bryne all signed and sealed as witnesses.6
