"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."

"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.

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."

"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."

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.1
