(4th Daughter) Deed Memorial29 April 1814Catherine 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.
