The deed began by outlining the Hinds family's history with the lands, reciting first that Walter Hinds, formerly of Corrakane in the county of Cavan, was seized in fee of and in the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy previous to the year 1770, and that, being so seized, had conveyed the lands to his son Thomas Hinds as a child's portion in the marriage settlement agreement he made in August 1770 with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford, father of Thomas' wife Anne (Slator) Hinds. And reciting that, as a part of that agreement, after the death of Thomas, his widow Anne was to receive a jointure of £50 a year payable out of the lands. The agreement also directed that, after the death of Thomas, the lands should descend to his male issue and that, after the death of his widow Anne, her jointure should revert to the couple's male issue. The agreement also permitted Thomas, at any time he thought proper, to raise the sum of £1000 as a portion for each of his younger children, whether males or females.

The 1821 deed then recited that the marriage between Thomas Hinds and Anne Slator was duly had and solemnized and that Thomas entered into possession of the lands and remained seized thereof until the time of his death. It recited that he died in 1794 leaving Anne Hinds otherwise Slator his widow, also since deceased, and seven children of the marriage, namely Walter Hinds, his eldest son and heir at law, Alexander Hinds, his second son since deceased, Thomas Hinds, his third son since deceased, Isaac Hinds, Martha Warner, now the wife of George Warner, Elizabeth Kennedy and Mary Hinds. It recited that previous to his death, Thomas Hinds duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he left to his eldest son Walter the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, and to each of his six younger children the sum of £1000. His will had appointed his wife Anne Hinds, his son-in-law George Warner, and his second son Alexander Hinds his executors.

The 1821 deed next recited that Thomas Hinds the younger was also dead, having first duly made his will whereof he appointed his wife Anne McCluskey his executrix, and that his second son Alexander Hinds was also dead but, previous to his death, had duly made and published his last will and testament by which he appointed his mother, Anne Hinds the elder, his sole executrix, and that Anne Hinds the elder was also deceased and that she had by her last will appointed her son Isaac Hinds her sole executor. The death of Mary Hinds, another of the children of Thomas and Anne Hinds the elder, was also recited, with the statement that her brother Isaac had obtained letters of administration for all of her properties.

The 1821 deed went on to recite that Walter Hinds, upon the death of his father Thomas, entered into possession of the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy and that by deeds of lease and release, followed by a deed of common recovery, both in 1795, had become seized in his demesne, as of fee, of and in the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy. And that being so thereof seized, he duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he gave and bequeathed to his wife Anne Hinds and his brother-in-law George Warner, as trustees, the said towns and lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy. To hold the same unto the said George Warner and Anne Hinds and the survivor of them and the heirs of such survivor forever subject to his just debts and chargeables as therein mentioned upon trust to levy and pay out of said lands unto his widow Anne Hinds a sum of £50 and also one annuity of £100 in lieu of all dower and the will gave his son George Hinds the sum of £1500 payable as therein mentioned and to any other child he might have by his wife Anne the sum of £1000 provided however that if he should have such other child, his son George should only be paid a sum of £1000 instead of the legacy of £1500 and subject to such annuity and legacies the will directed his trustees should stand seized and possessed of such lands for and to the use of his eldest son Walter Hinds Esq., party to the indenture of release first herein mentioned, his heirs and assigns forever, and of his said will he appointed his wife Anne (Hinds) Hinds and George Warner executors and died leaving his widow Anne and three children, namely Walter Hinds Esq., his eldest son and heir at law, George Hinds, and Martha Hinds. And then also reciting the death of Martha Hinds intestate and unmarried and that Walter Hinds, her brother, had obtained letters of administration of her goods and chattels, and also reciting that the said George Warner in right of his wife Martha Warner, otherwise Hinds, the said Isaac Hinds in his own right, and also as executor of the said Alexander Hinds, and also as administrator of the said Mary Hinds, the said Anne McCluskey and executrix of Thomas Hinds Junior, and the said Samuel Kennedy and Elizabeth Kennedy his wife , parties to the said first mentioned indenture of release were under the marriage articles of the first day of August 1770 and the will of the said Thomas Hinds, entitled to what remained of the said sum of £1000, and which then amounted to a sum of £769,12s,6p, and that the said George Hinds was then entitled to the sum of £1500 for principal and interest on the sum of £1000 bequeathed to him by his father the said Walter Hinds, and that there was nothing due to Walter Hinds the younger as administrator of his sister Martha Hinds, of her legacy of £1000.

Finally, after reviewing all of the pertinent past history regarding the family and the lands, the 1821 deed recited that Robert Burrowes, late of Bolton Street in the county of Middlesex, England, deceased, by his last will and testament in writing, directed the residue of his fortune to be laid out in lands, as contiguous as practicable, to Stradone in the county of Cavan and he appointed Thomas Burrowes, Arnold Robinson Burrowes and John Woolmore his executors.

(Bride's Sister) Marriage Settlement26 August 1813Martha witnessed the signatures on her sister Eleanor Anne's marriage settlement agreement dated 26 August 1813 between Thomas Potterton of Ballaghtalion, County Meath, Ireland, Esq., together with Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd who were described as the wives of ______ Donnelly and James Rynd of Portlester and Ryndville, both in the County of Meath, respectively, of the first part, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds of Trim, County Meath, widow, of the second part, Eleanora Anne Hinds, spinster, daughter of Sarah, of the third part, and Henry Potterton of the City of Dublin gentleman and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds of Newtown Hill in the County of Kildare, widow, of the fourth part.3
(Granddaughter) Deed Memorial29 April 1814Martha was a participant with others in her mother's extended Gerrard family, on a Memorial deed dated 29 April 1814 that included her sister 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 four other 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 Harlowe, 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.

Relationship Note*A father-daughter relationship between Mary (Hinds) Walsh and Ralph Hinds (1741-1794) of Mulhussey has not been clearly identified, although evidence has us suspecting that was the case. If not his daughter, she was a member of his extended family -- possibly an aunt or a cousin, living in his household. Ralph's will described her as his servant, and her husband, who was a gardener, was also in his employ. Ralph's bequests to Mary included land and almost all of his household furniture.2,1
Marriage*She married James Walsh.1
(Heir) Will15 April 1794Mary was named as a beneficiary in the will of Ralph Hinds, dated 15 April 1794 and proved on 10 May 1794. She was identified as his servant, Mary Walsh, wife of James Walsh, both in his service. He bequeathed to her during her natural life and after her decease to her eldest son Michael Walsh, all his estate freehold of the lands of Thorntown with its sub-denominations situate in the County of Dublin and all his interest therein which he held under Sir Pigot William Peirs. Also to Mary Walsh, he gave all the household furniture in the house of Kimmins Mill except the desk and bookcase in his own bed chamber and the Ewe table in the parlour.2
Deed Memorial16 April 1795A memorial of a deed dated 16 April 1795 was made whereby James Walsh and Mary (Hinds) Walsh agreed to sell their interest in the lands of Thorntown and Stradbally, which they derived under the will of the late Ralph Hinds Esq., to Robert Wilson of the county of Meath for the considerations therein mentioned. The signed and witnessed deed was recorded on 17 April 1795.3
Deed Memorial*2 May 1795A memorial of a deed of lease and release dated 1 and 2 May 1795 was made between James Walsh of the city of Dublin, gardener, and his wife Mary (Hinds) Walsh of the one part, and Robert Wilson of Newtown in the county of Meath, gentleman, of the other part. Reciting as therein is recited and witnessed that James Walsh and Mary Walsh otherwise Hinds, for the considerations therein mentioned, did assign and make over unto Robert Wilson all that, that part of the town and lands of Stradbally and Thorntown lying on the south side of the road leading from Kilsallaghan to Grange containing one house and 52 acres, 3 rods and 10 perches, with the appurtenances, situate in the county of Dublin. To hold to Robert Wilson, his heirs and assigns, during the lives of Matthew Hinds and Thomas Hinds, who we suspect were Mary's brothers, provided Mary Walsh shall so live. The signed and witnessed deed was recorded on 4 May 1795.3

Court ActionIn the marriage settlement of Mary Anne's and Charlotte's mother, Catherine Kelly, to Ralph Hinds, there was a clause charging £1000 for each of the daughters on the Mulhussey property. After the death of Mary Anne, this money was recovered by Charlotte, who inherited her sister's portion. After the Court of Chancery directed that part of the property be sold, to pay this money, Charlotte bought land that had belonged to her father and was situated near Killeshandra in the townlands of Toberlion and Meelick.1
(Daughter) Burial Following her father's death in 1843, Mary Anne's sister Charlotte, erected a monument at St. Jerome Cemetery in Dublin in her father's and sister's memory. It stands close to the entrance gate of the cemetery and is inscribed with the names of Ralph Hinds and Mary Anne Hinds. The date on the monument is not correct for Ralph's death, and may be the date Charlotte's mother died in 1817 and/or the date of Mary Anne's death.1

(Sister) ResidenceMary Anne Martha Hinds lived with her mother, Jane (Smith) Hinds, and brother, Walter Hinds Esq., at Portland Place, Dublin, at the time her marriage settlement was signed in September 1817.2
Marriage Settlement*15 September 1817 On 15 September 1817 James Ellis of Summerhill, County Meath, and his bride-to-be, Mary Anne Martha Hinds, spinster of Portland Place in the City and County of Dublin, were participants in a Memorial Deed of Marriage Settlement agreement. Others participating in the settlement included Jane Hinds of Portland Place, Dublin, a widow and the mother of Mary Anne Martha Hinds, Walter Thomas Hinds Esq., also of Portland Place, Dublin, the son of Jane Hinds and brother of Mary Anne Martha Hinds and William Smith Esq. of Laracor in the County of Meath.

The Memorial deed recited that a marriage had been agreed upon and was soon intended to occur between James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds and that James Ellis was entitled under the will of his uncle John Cade late of Ledden Hall Street in the City of London, a Merchant deceased, to the sum of £700 payable upon the death of his mother, Mary Cade, otherwise Ellis, and that that sum was at that time invested at 4 percent compounding in the Bank of Ireland in the name of John Robinson of Ledden Hall Street, a Merchant, as a Trustee for James and his mother. It further recited that Jane Hinds, the mother of Mary Anne Martha Hinds, had agreed to give her daughter a fortune of £500 and that it had been agreed by James Ellis, Mary Anne Martha Hinds and Jane Hinds upon the surety of the intended marriage that the sum of £700 should be assigned to and vested with Walter Thomas Hinds Esq. and William Smith Esq. and that the sum of £500 should be paid to Walter Thomas Hinds and William Smith as Trustees for the specific intents and purposes outlined in the agreement.

James Ellis, in consideration of the marriage, had agreed that Mary Anne Martha Hinds, in case she should survive him after their marriage had been solemnized, should have, hold and enjoy during the term of her natural life all the Estate, Real, freehold and personal, he owned or was entitled to at the time of his death. Jane Hinds, with the agreement of James Ellis, had already paid to Walter Thomas Hinds and William Smith, as Trustees, her portion of £500 and it was therefore established that James Ellis and Jane Hinds had each vested their sums of £700 and £500 with the Trustees for the following Trusts: the sum of £700 in Trust for James Ellis, his Executors, Administrators and assigns until the said intended marriage should be duly had and solemnized; and the sum of £500 held in trust for Jane Hinds, her Executors, Administrators and assigns until the intended marriage should be dully had and solemnized. Then, from and immediately after the solemnization of the intended marriage, the two sums of £700 and £500, with Walter Thomas Hinds and William Smith as Trustees, and the survivor of them, and the heirs, Executors, Administrators and assigns of such survivor, were to invest the sum of five hundred pounds in Government or other good and rated security with the prior written approval of James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds, and that they were to permit James Ellis and his assigns during the time of his natural Life to have, receive and take for his own proper use and behalf all the dividends, interest and other profits which should during his natural life accrue, arise, be made by or from the two sums of £700 and £500 or any portion of them and from and immediately after the death of James Ellis, in case Mary Anne Martha Hinds should survive her husband, the Trustees were to permit Mary Anne Martha Hinds and her assigns during her natural Life to receive and take for her own use, all the dividends interest and other profits which should during her life accrue, arise or be made by or from the two sums of £700 and £500 or any portion of them.

After the deaths of both James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds, the Trustees, heirs, Executors, Administrators and assigns were to transfer, assign, pay, apply or dispose of all the several sums or parcels of stock and all the dividends, interest and other profits thereof to each and every of the sons and daughters lawfully to be begotten of James Ellis upon the body of Martha Hinds and the children of such sons or daughters in case any of them should be then dead leaving issue in equal shares and proportions, and if but one, wholly to that one. But the child or children of such sons or daughters as should then happen to be dead, should be entitled only to the share which his, her or their Father and Mother would have been entitled to if living; equally to be divided amongst such children if there be more than one and if but one, wholly to that one. In case Mary Anne Martha Hinds should survive James Ellis, and should not have any issue of their marriage living at the time of his death, or that having issue or being pregnant and that such issue should die unmarried in the lifetime of Mary Anne Martha Hinds, the Trustees, or the survivor of them, their or either of their Executors, Administrators or assigns were to transfer, assign and pay over to Mary Anne Martha Hinds or her assigns the several sums of money or stock and all the dividends, interest and other profits thereof, and of any part thereof, to her for her sole and separate use forever growing, arising or accruing from or out of the properties involved for and during the term of her natural life.

Following her death, and from and after the determination of the marriage settlement Estate then in Trust, the trustees were to pay, apply, dispose and divide the Estate in such manner as James Ellis should have directed, limited or appointed in writing, by his last will and Testament. Or, for want of such appointment, then the several sums of £700 and £500 were to descend to the next of kin of James Ellis, and if that were the case, the deed contained a Covenant permitting the Trustees, with the consent of James Ellis and Mary Anne Martha Hinds, to invest the several sums in other Securities to accrue to the Trustees and the deed also contained a clause that one Trustee should not be answerable for the act of the other.

The deed together with the memorial was witnessed, signed, sealed and delivered by James Ellis and Jane Hinds in the presence of William Wildrige and George Canall. William Wildrige, under oath, stated that he was a witness to the deed of which the above writing was intended to be a memorial and saw the same duly executed by James Ellis, Mary Anne Martha Hinds, Jane Hinds and Walter Thomas Hinds and also saw the above Memorial duly executed by the above named James Ellis and Jane Hinds and that he, William Wildrige, as a witness to the deed and memorial verified the participants' names and handwriting and stated he delivered the deed and Memorial to Francis Armstrong Esq., Deputy Register, at the Four Courts, Dublin at or near the hour of 2 o'clock in the afternoon of the 15th day of September Inst. Sworn by William Wildrige this 15th day of Sept 1817, and signed by Francis Armstrong DR.2

And from and after his death, to the use of the said trustees for five hundred years; to the use of the first son of Matthew by Sarah and the heirs of such first son; in default thereof to the use of the second, third, fourth and all and every son and sons of Matthew by Sarah, successively, one after another in seniority of the heirs of all and every such son and sons, such sons of the heirs of his body to be preferred. With no such issue, the lands were to default back to the use of Ralph Hinds, his heirs and assigns forever. And, concerning the said five hundred years to the Trustees to support the other contingent premises and for the other purposes therein and partially upon trust. In case the said Sarah Gerrard should survive the said Matthew Hinds and there should be no issue of their marriage living at his decease or if any issue and the same should die before the age of twenty-one, the Trust was to pay or to authorize said Sarah and her assigns to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands included in this Grant and Release, a yearly annuity rent charge of £100 during her natural life for her and their own use and benefit; and in case Sarah should survive Matthew, and there be living issue at his decease, then and so long as the said children lived, the Trust was to pay or to authorize Sarah to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands an annual annuity rent charge of £70, in lieu of the said annuity of £100, during her natural life. Sarah's annual annuity, whichever it turned out to be, was to be paid half yearly on the first of November and the first of May by equal portions without deductions. The first payment was to be made on such of the said days which shall first happen next after the decease of Matthew Hinds, with a power for Sarah and her assigns to distrain (seize for payment of the debt); and in case there should be an eldest son and one or more other child or children of Matthew Hinds on the body of Sarah Gerrard to be begotten, or in case there should not be any son of the intended marriage and all their issue should be a daughter or daughters, then William Gerrard of Liscarton and Thomas Hinds, their executors, administrators and assigns, should by sale or mortgage during the said term of five hundred years, levy or borrow £1,000 for the portion or portions of the other child or children and pay or make over the said sum among the child or children other than an eldest or only son in such shares or proportions as Matthew Hinds by deed or by his last will should appoint. The Deed of Release and Memorial was signed and sealed by all parties and witnessed by Edward King of the City of Dublin Gentleman and Christian Jordan, Writing Clerk on 04 February 1784, and registered the same day.7
Marriage*February 1784He married Sarah Gerrard, daughter of William Gerrard.6
(Heir) Will15 April 1794Matthew's father, Ralph Hinds of Kimmins Mill, County Meath, left a will dated 15 April 1794 and proved on 10 May 1794. His estate was quite large. He named eighteen beneficiaries, including Walter Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, Anne Hinds, Richard Stephens, Esther (Cannon) Hinds, Matthew Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Mary (Hinds) Walsh, Michael Walsh, Clarissa (Hinds) Stephens, Martha (Hinds) Matthews, Eleanor (Hinds) Smith, Hester (Hinds) Dunn, Hester Stephens, Clarissa Stephens and Mary Anne Stephens. It appears from reading the will that he put much of his estate into a trust or series of trusts, with Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry as trustees, for the purpose of perpetuating the Hinds legacy for eternity. The order of succession was designed to be (1) Walter Hinds, eldest son; (2) Ralph Hinds, fourth son; (3) Walter Hinds, nephew and son-in-law, husband of daughter Anne Hinds; and (4) Richard Stephens, his grandson.

In his will, Ralph confirmed the settlement of marriage he had previously executed for his second son, Matthew Hinds and his wife, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, and the uses and trusts and covenants mentioned in that agreement.8
(Beneficiary) Deed Memorial2 May 1795A memorial of a deed of lease and release dated 1 and 2 May 1795 was made between James Walsh of the city of Dublin, gardener, and his wife Mary (Hinds) Walsh of the one part, and Robert Wilson of Newtown in the county of Meath, gentleman, of the other part. Reciting as therein is recited and witnessed that James Walsh and Mary Walsh otherwise Hinds, for the considerations therein mentioned, did assign and make over unto Robert Wilson all that, that part of the town and lands of Stradbally and Thorntown lying on the south side of the road leading from Kilsallaghan to Grange containing one house and 52 acres, 3 rods and 10 perches, with the appurtenances, situate in the county of Dublin. To hold to Robert Wilson, his heirs and assigns, during the lives of Matthew Hinds and Thomas Hinds, who we suspect were Mary's brothers, provided Mary Walsh shall so live. The signed and witnessed deed was recorded on 4 May 1795.9
Residence*Sarah and Matthew Hinds resided in Trim, County Meath.10
Deathbefore 1809He died in or before 1809, the year Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, was described in a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas as "since dead, leaving Sarah a widow and three children...all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years."11
Death*before 12 January 1820He died before 12 January 1820, the date his widow Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds was party to a Memorial Deed which created a marriage settlement of £600, half the amount Sarah had received from her father's will, on Matilda, daughter of Sarah and Matthew Hinds, in consideration of a marriage to be had and solemnized between Matilda Hinds and the Reverend James Matthews.10

Name-DescriptiveThe descriptive name we have used to clarify the identification of this Ralph Hinds, as we attempted to place him correctly within the Hinds family, was Ralph Hinds (1741-1794) of Mulhussey, although he was also of Kimmis, County Meath.1
Birth*1741He was born in 1741.1
Freehold Estate*Ralph Hinds (1741-1794) of Mulhussey received his property in the towns and lands of Corrakane, Coagagh, and Coghs in County Cavan, Ireland, as a Freehold Estate, from the late John Maxwell, the Lord Farnham, Baron.2
Marriage*between January 1760 and February 1760Ralph Hinds Esquire of Old Castle, County Meath, Ireland, married Esther Cannon, daughter of ______ Cannon, between January 1760 and February 1760. The couple had at least ten children, whose order of birth has not yet been learned.2,3
(Heir) Will21 September 1766Ralph's uncle, John Hinds of Kilmainham, County Cavan, Ireland, left a will dated 21 September 1766 and proven on 7 Feb 1769 naming the following beneficiaries: Mary (Hinds) Stephens, Mary (Hinds) Clarke, Ralph Clarke, Mary Anne Clarke, Catherine (Clarke) Stephens, Anthony Clarke, Walter Hinds, John Hinds, Thomas Hinds, William Hinds, Margaret Hinds, Richard Booth, George Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Ralph Hinds, John Hinds, Margaret Latterton, William Latterton, Mary Latterton, George Grahams, Robert Forster Shields and Jane Trimble.

To his nephew Ralph Hinds, he gave all of his stock of cattle on his land in Kilmainham (except for the two cows he gave to Mary Latterton) and, after the payment of all his other desired legacies and his lawful debts, the remainder of his estate was to be divided equally between his brother Thomas Hinds and his nephew Ralph Hinds, whom he also nominated, constituted and appointed to be his Executors.4
ResidenceRalph and his family lived primarily at Mulhussey Castle, County Meath, Ireland.5
Relationship NoteA father-daughter relationship between Ralph Hinds (1741-1794) of Mulhussey and Mary (Hinds) Walsh has not been clearly identified, although evidence has us suspecting that was the case. If not his daughter, she was a member of his extended family -- possibly an aunt or a cousin, living in his household. Ralph's will described her as his servant, and her husband, who was a gardener, was also in his employ. Ralph's bequests to Mary included land and almost all of his household furniture.2,6
(Heir) Will18 July 1778Ralph's father, Walter Hinds (1703-1777) of Corrakane, left a will dated 5 Aug 1777 and proved on 18 July 1778, naming the following beneficiaries: Martha (Faris) Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, John Hinds, William Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Anne Hinds and Mary (Hinds) Clarke.

To Ralph, his eldest son, he gave the lands of Toberlion, Meelick and Duffin and the responsibility to pay his (Ralph's) brother John an annual income of £40. Also to Ralph, and to his heirs forever, the lands of Nedd and Carnagee, and £1000 to be paid out of his father's effects together with two score (40) of the best bullocks (castrated bulls, also known as oxen or steers) on the lands which he was instructed to enjoy after his father's decease.7,8,1
Relationship Note*In the Marriage Settlement of his daughter, Clarissa Hinds, she was identified as his eldest daughter.9
(Father) Relationship NoteIn the Marriage Settlement of his son, John Hinds, who was identified as Ralph's third son, Matthew Hinds was identified as his second son.10
Marriage Settlement3 February 1784 On 3 February 1784, Ralph Hinds of Mulhussey, County Meath, Esq. of the first part, his second son Matthew Hinds and Sarah Gerrard, spinster and one of the daughters of William Gerrard of Dormstown, in the County of Meath Esq. of the second part, the said William Gerrard of the third part, and William Gerrard of Liscarton in the County of Meath Esq. and Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin Esq. of the fourth part, made a Memorial of Indentured Deed of Release. After first reciting that Ralph Hinds was seized in fee simple of (owned unconditionally) the different lands contained in the deed, and also reciting that a marriage was intended to be thereby had between Matthew Hinds and Sarah Gerrard, the Deed of Release identified the portions of his lands Ralph was agreeing to give in trust for the benefit of his son Matthew Hinds and his wife Sarah Gerrard with William Gerrard of Liscartin, whose relationship to Sarah was not identified, and Matthew's brother Thomas Hinds as trustees. Ralph Hinds first granted, bargained, sold, released and confirmed to William Gerrard and Thomas Hinds the towns and lands of Nedd, Cornagee, the part of Toberlion called Duffin and Meltea, otherwise Mellick, situated, lying and being in the County of Cavan, with all and singular their appurtenances. Thomas Hinds and William Gerrard as trustees, their heirs and assigns, were to hold the said lands and premises thereby granted and released, with the appurtenances, to their own use and maintenance, and partially, after the marriage of Matthew and Sarah, to the use of Matthew and his assigns during his life. And from and after his death, to the use of the said trustees for five hundred years; to the use of the first son of Matthew by Sarah and the heirs of such first son; in default thereof to the use of the second, third, fourth and all and every son and sons of Matthew by Sarah, successively, one after another in seniority of the heirs of all and every such son and sons, such sons of the heirs of his body to be preferred. With no such issue, the lands were to default back to the use of Ralph Hinds, his heirs and assigns forever. And, concerning the said five hundred years to the Trustees to support the other contingent premises and for the other purposes therein and partially upon trust. In case the said Sarah Gerrard should survive the said Matthew Hinds and there should be no issue of their marriage living at his decease or if any issue and the same should die before the age of twenty-one, the Trust was to pay or to authorize said Sarah and her assigns to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands included in this Grant and Release, a yearly annuity rent charge of £100 during her natural life for her and their own use and benefit; and in case Sarah should survive Matthew, and there be living issue at his decease, then and so long as the said children lived, the Trust was to pay or to authorize Sarah to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands an annual annuity rent charge of £70, in lieu of the said annuity of £100, during her natural life. Sarah's annual annuity, whichever it turned out to be, was to be paid half yearly on the first of November and the first of May by equal portions without deductions. The first payment was to be made on such of the said days which shall first happen next after the decease of Matthew Hinds, with a power for Sarah and her assigns to distrain (seize for payment of the debt); and in case there should be an eldest son and one or more other child or children of Matthew Hinds on the body of Sarah Gerrard to be begotten, or in case there should not be any son of the intended marriage and all their issue should be a daughter or daughters, then William Gerrard of Liscarton and Thomas Hinds, their executors, administrators and assigns, should by sale or mortgage during the said term of five hundred years, levy or borrow £1,000 for the portion or portions of the other child or children and pay or make over the said sum among the child or children other than an eldest or only son in such shares or proportions as Matthew Hinds by deed or by his last will should appoint. The Deed of Release and Memorial was signed and sealed by all parties and witnessed by Edward King of the City of Dublin Gentleman and Christian Jordan, Writing Clerk on 04 February 1784, and registered the same day.11
Deed Memorial2 April 1784 On 2 April 1784 Ralph Hinds of Mulhussey, County Meath, Esq. of the one part and his third son John Hinds, also of Mulhussey, of the other part, made a Memorial of an Indented Deed of Lease agreement. Ralph Hinds granted, settled and to farm let unto John Hinds all that and those the lands of Great and Little Boolies, otherwise Boolies of Clendenen containing five hundred and forty-two acres and forty-two fusches (sp?) be the same more or less, situate in the half Barony of Thore and County of Meath as the same was then enjoyed by Ralph Hinds and his tenants. To hold all and singular of the said premises unto John Hinds, his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns from the 12th day of February, then last during the natural lives and life of the said Ralph Hinds, party thereto, and of Ralph's brothers William Hinds and Thomas Hinds, sons of Walter Hinds, late of Corrakane, in the County of Cavan deceased, and the survivor and survivors of them in case they should all three die before the completion of forty-one years from the 12th of February 1757. To hold these premises unto the said John Hinds, his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns from the death of the last of the said three lives for and during so many years of the term of forty-one years to be computed from said 12th day of February 1757 as should then remain unexpired at the yearly rent of £365 sterling payable quarterly. The said Deed of Lease and Memorial was signed and sealed in the presence of Ralph's son Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin, Esq. and Christian Jordan of the City of Dublin, Writing Clerk, and registered on 3 April 1784.12
Marriage Settlement2 April 1784 On the same day of 2 April 1784, Ralph Hinds of Mulhussey, County Meath, Esq. and his third son John Hinds of the first part, William Gerrard of Parsonstown, in the County of Meath Esq. and his eldest daughter Rebecca Gerrard of the second part, Edward King of the City of Dublin Gentleman of the third part, and Ralph's fourth son Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin Gentleman made a Memorial of Indentured Deed of Release. Reciting that a marriage was intended shortly to be solemnized between John Hinds and Rebecca Gerrard, Ralph Hinds did grant, bargain, sell, release and confirm unto Edward King all that and those the town and lands of Mulhussey containing one hundred and six acres more or less and three acres of the lands of Milltown situate in the Barony of Deece and County of Meath with the rights, members and appurtenances to hold unto Edward King his heirs and assigns for and during the natural lives and life of John Smyth, second son of John Smyth of Violinstown in the County of Westmeath, and of Matthew Hinds and John Hinds, second and third sons of Ralph Hinds, and the lives and lives of them and for and during the life and lives of such person or persons from time to time entered in any renewal forever and forever thereafter interest that person, and immediately after the decease of John Hinds, that Rebecca Gerrard and her assigns should and might yearly during her life receive and take to her and there use one annuity of £100 to be issued out of and charged upon all and singularly the lands of T..... and Herede.... to be paid to Rebecca Gerrard and her assigns by two half yearly payments on every first day of May and first day of November, the first payment to be made on such of the said days as should next happen after the death of the said John Hinds, with a power for the said Rebecca to distrain (seize for payment of the debt). The deed was signed and sealed in the presence of Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin Esq. and Christian Jordan who signed as the subscribing witness. The deed was registered on 03 April 1784.13
(Heir) EstateWilliam Hinds died before his brother Ralph who then inherited, as a result of their father's will, all the Estate lands, tenements and hereditaments that had been William's before his death.2
Will15 April 1794Ralph Hinds of Kimmins Mill, County Meath, left a will dated 15 April 1794 and proved on 10 May 1794. His estate was quite large. He named eighteen beneficiaries, including Walter Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, Anne Hinds, Richard Stephens, Esther (Cannon) Hinds, Matthew Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Mary (Hinds) Walsh, Michael Walsh, Clarissa (Hinds) Stephens, Martha (Hinds) Matthews, Eleanor (Hinds) Smith, Hester (Hinds) Dunn, Hester Stephens, Clarissa Stephens and Mary Anne Stephens. It appears from reading the will that he put much of his estate into a trust or series of trusts, with Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry as trustees, for the purpose of perpetuating the Hinds legacy for eternity. While we don’t yet know what eventually became of all the lands mentioned in Ralph’s will, or exactly when and under what circumstances they left the family, we do know that Ralph's eldest son Walter, who inherited (in trust) Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clunomuet and Corrarde with their sub-denominations, died in 1804 and that he left a son Walter, born about 1798, who also lived at Corrakane until at least 1821, and possibly for the remainder of his life. He had eight children, six of them sons, and most of his children emigrated to England and the United States in the late 1860s. Their father Walter, who remained in County Cavan, died at Ballinagh, near Corrakane, in 1879. It is also known that Ralph’s fourth son, Ralph, ultimately received at least the towns and lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Mulalvey in the County of Meath, had no male issue, and so impoverished himself that he lost all his property except an annuity secured on the lands of Mulhussey.

The will found at the National Archives of Ireland in 2005 had the following notation: Extracted from the Registry of her Majesty's Court of Prerogative in Ireland." It begins: "In the Name of God Amen I Ralph Hinds the elder of Kimmins Mill in the County of Meath Esquire considering the uncertainties of this life and being at present sound in mind memory and understanding Do make publish and declare this and no other to be my last Will and Testament to wit I order and direct that my body may be interred in a private and decent manner early in the morning in the Church Yard of Reddinstown at the discretion of my Executors..." He then made the following bequests:

To Thomas Berry of Rockfield and Alexander Berry of Berrymount, both in the County of Cavan Esquire and to "their Heirs all that and those", the Towns and lands of Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clonmult and Corrarde with their sub-denominations situate in the County of Cavan to be held in Trust for Ralph's eldest son Walter... "

" ... in trust to permit and suffer my said son Walter and his Assigns to take and receive the rents, issues and profits thereof during the term of his natural life"... and then after Walter's death the same situation for any male heirs, lawfully begotten by Walter, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births. And, should Walter not have any sons, then at Walter's death his inheritance was given to Walter's brother Ralph Hinds...

So, next in line was Ralph, his fourth son and for his Assigns, for and during the term of his natural life and with the same conditions for receipt of rents, issues and profits outlined for Walter. And also with the same conditions of succession to Ralph's male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births.

Next in line was Ralph's nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, husband of Ralph's daughter Anne Hinds, with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession previously reviewed.

The last in line was Ralph's grandson, Richard Stephens, again with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession.

As trustees, Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry and their Heirs during the natural life of the said Ralph Hinds were instructed to support the contingent remainders hereinafter limited from being defeated and destroyed and for that purpose to make entries and bring actions as occasion should require.

To his wife Esther Hinds, during the term of her natural life, Ralph directed that his trustees pay £40 a year, over and above all taxes, from the lands and premises held in trust and instructed that this payment be their first priority, and made quarterly on every first day of May, August, November and February in every year. This payment was to be made in lieu of all "Dower or Thirds" which she may have had a claim to at Common law or out of his lands, tenements or Premises which could be seized for any estate of inheritance (taxes?). And he further directed that his wife, within the space of six calendar months after his death, execute such a release of all dower and Title of Dower and Thirds at Common law which she could or might be entitled to and to any lands and premises of the estate that could or might be seized in order to protect them for the line of succession described earlier in the will. Ralph's will provided that should Esther refuse to execute such a release within the term described, then any gift or bequest to and for her own use and benefit was to cease and become void. Further, the will gave Walter, "or such person as be seized," of said Premises the power by Mortgage or otherwise to encumber the lands of Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clonmult and Cunarde as a provision for younger children which he or they may have with sum or sums of money not exceeding one thousand pounds.

To his son Walter Hinds and his Heirs and Assigns, he bequeathed all of his Freehold Estate in the Towns and Lands of Corrigeran, Coagagh, Coghs and all his interest therein situate in the County of Cavan which he derived by Lease from the late Lord Farnham.

Again, regarding the £40 a year payable to his wife, Esther, from the lands of Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clonmult and Curraide, Ralph's will stated that in case the amount should not be paid upon the days respectively before mentioned or within twenty-one days after each of said days of payment shall be passed, that then and in such case Esther Hinds and her assigns would have liberty to enter upon any part of those lands and distrain (seize for payment of the debt) the same lands for her Jointure (the arrangement by which a man sets aside property for the support of his wife after his death; the property so designated) as the same shall become due and the distress and distresses and then there found to dispose of according to law in full satisfaction of the said jointure and all arrears thereof and all costs attending the recovery thereof. He also bequeathed to his wife Esther the sum of three hundred and nine pounds with all interest due thereon by her brother Mathew Cannon by Bills of Exchange of his Endorsement bearing date on or about the _(blank)_day of _(blank)_. His will also directed his Executors to recover the debt by suit or otherwise as soon after his death as convenient and to pay the full amount all interest to his wife Esther Hinds. Also to Esther, he gave the use of all his household furniture, Carriage and two Horses during her natural life or so long as she should continue to live with her children.

After the death of Esther, the carriage, horses and household furniture were instructed to go to his son Ralph.

Ralph further bequeathed to his son Walter Hinds, and his heirs forever, all the estates, lands, tenements or hereditaments late in the possession of his (Ralph's) brother William Hinds and all interest and claim whatsoever in and to the same which Ralph either had in his possession, or was in any respect entitled to, at the time of William's death.

In his will, Ralph confirmed the settlement of marriage executed unto his second son, Matthew Hinds and his wife, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, and the uses and trusts and covenants therein mentioned.

The will also confirmed that Ralph had already given his third son, Thomas Hinds, the Deed of Sale on the lands of Curraghstown situate in the County of Meath.

To his nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, his Executors, Administrators and Assigns, he gave the Bond and Judgment Debt owed to Ralph by Richard Johnston, late of Dunmuelty in the County of Dublin, deceased, and also the sum of seventy-two pounds eighteen shillings due to Ralph with interest from the year 1780 by his brother Thomas Hinds, and also the sum of twenty-six pounds three shillings and three pence due to Ralph by his sister Anne Hinds, and also the sum of fifty pounds due to Ralph by Patrick Halffrenry, late of Bolis in the County of Meath.

To his fourth son, Ralph Hinds and his heirs, he gave his interest in the entire town and lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Mulalvey in the County of Meath subject to Ralph paying his brother Alexander Hinds, Ralph the Elder's fifth son, forty pounds a year. The will provided, that in the event of non-payment, Alexander had the right to distrain (seize) those lands or any part thereof for the payment.

As just stated, to his fifth son, Alexander Hinds, the sum of forty pounds per year, and the responsibility for payment to his fourth son, Ralph. The will instructed Ralph to pay Alexander, during his natural life, at the rate of two even half-yearly payments on the first day of May and first day of November in every year. Alexander was given the liberty, in case of non-payment, to seize the town and lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Mulalvey in the County of Meath, or any part thereof, for payment.

Again, to his fourth son Ralph, this time in trust, he gave the Town and Lands of Nasterstown in the County of Meath and Toberlion, Meelick and Duffin, Nedd and Comaga in the County of Cavan. According to the will, remainders from being defeated and destroyed, and instructed the trustees to make entries and bring actions as the case should require, while still permitting Ralph to take the rents, issues and profits during the term of his natural life. After son Ralph's death, the succession of inheritance was to follow the same pattern and conditions outlined earlier in the will: passing first to Ralph's male heirs, then to Ralph the Elder's nephew and son-in-law Walter Hinds and his wife Anne Hinds, and to their male heirs, then to Ralph the Elder's grandson, Richard Stephens, eldest son of Ralph's daughter Clarissa Stephens, and to his male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of births.

To his fourth son Ralph, he also gave all of his stock of cattle, horses, hay, corn, household furniture except as before excepted, and Plate Farming Utensils on the lands of Mulhussey, Munalvey or elsewhere.

His will further provided that the lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Munalvey and all his several stocks of cattle thereon be subject to the payment of all his just debts and legacies except those bequeathed to his wife and children or such person as should be seized of the lands of Mulhussey, all being given the power to charge by Mortgage or otherwise. The will instructs son Ralph to charge and encumber all the several and respective lands, either given to him or in trust for him, for his younger children or for such person as should be seized of the lands, lawfully to be gotten with a sum not exceeding two thousand pounds.

To his servant, Mary Walsh, wife of James Walsh, both in his service, he bequeathed to her during her natural life and after her decease to her eldest son Michael Walsh, all his estate freehold of the lands of Thorntown with its sub-denominations situate in the County of Dublin and all his interest therein which he held under Sir Pigot William Peirs. Also to Mary Walsh, he gave all the household furniture in the house of Kimmins Mill except the desk and bookcase in his own bed chamber and the Ewe table in the parlour.

To his nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, he gave the desk and bookcase from his bedroom and the Ewe table in the parlour.

To his daughters Clarissa Stephens and Martha Matthews, he left one shilling each, only because they had already been paid their fortunes and provided for in his lifetime. To his daughter Eleanor Smith, he gave one hundred pounds and to his daughter Hester Dunn, fifty pounds. To his daughter Anne Hinds, the wife of his nephew Walter Hinds, the sum of one thousand pounds to be paid by the Executors, twelve months after his death, with interest for the amount until paid at the rate of six pounds by the hundred yearly.

To his granddaughters, Hester Stephens, Clarissa Stephens and Mary Anne Stephens, he gave the sum of two hundred pounds which he was entitled to under the will of his late father, Walter Hinds Esquire deceased, upon the death of his (Ralph's) sister, Anne Hinds. The amount was to be divided between his granddaughters in the following manner: To Hester, fifty pounds; to Clarissa, one hundred pounds, and to Mary Anne, fifty pounds. He gave his heirs full rights on the properties he bequeathed to each, unless seized or limited by Indenture or Indentures, to demise (transfer) and lease their properties or any parts thereof for any term or terms not exceeding thirty-one years; and that any respective lease or leases were to contain conditions of re-entry for non-payment of rent and dispunishment of Waste and that the rents be adjusted annually to the full and most improved yearly value than could be reasonably be had. No fine, fines or income whatsoever could be taken from another son or heir by any respectively on his wife or wives by way of by his son Ralph. Any such jointure was to be paid yearly out of such lands that belonged to each of the sons, respectively. The sons had the right, but not the obligation, to make the jointures.

To his son Ralph, he gave, all the rest and residue of his real and personal estate not already disposed of in his will. He also appointed son Ralph Hinds and his nephew and son-in-law Walter Hinds as the Executors of his Last Will and Testament and revoked all former or other wills made before.

Note: The place names mentioned have been transcribed as carefully as possible. The extract was handwritten and, some words, very difficult to read. It may be that some of the same places it described were referenced more than once with different spellings and also that the intended meanings of some of the phases in the document were misinterpreted. Named as Witnesses to his will were Richard Thonson, John Dalton and Frank Power Ward.2
Death*1794He died in 1794.14
Burial*In his will, Ralph Hinds had ordered and directed that his body be interred in a private and decent manner early in the morning in the Church Yard, Rodanstown, County Meath, Ireland, at the discretion of his Executors.2

Ralph Hinds

d. 1843
Relationships2nd great-grandson of John Hinds
Brother of Walter Hinds
ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Father*Ralph Hinds b. 1741, d. 1794
Mother*Esther Cannon
Name-DescriptiveThe descriptive name we used to clarify the identification of this Ralph Hinds, as we worked to place him correctly within the Hinds family, was Ralph Hinds (4th son) ( -1843).
(Son) ResidenceGrowing up with his parents and siblings, Ralph lived primarily at Mulhussey Castle, County Meath, Ireland.1
Marriage*1790He married Catherine Kelly.2
(Heir) Will15 April 1794Ralph's father, Ralph Hinds of Kimmins Mill, County Meath, left a will dated 15 April 1794 and proved on 10 May 1794. His estate was quite large. He named eighteen beneficiaries, including Walter Hinds, Ralph Hinds, Walter Hinds, Anne Hinds, Richard Stephens, Esther (Cannon) Hinds, Matthew Hinds, Thomas Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Mary (Hinds) Walsh, Michael Walsh, Clarissa (Hinds) Stephens, Martha (Hinds) Matthews, Eleanor (Hinds) Smith, Hester (Hinds) Dunn, Hester Stephens, Clarissa Stephens and Mary Anne Stephens. It appears from reading the will that he put much of his estate into a trust or series of trusts, with Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry as trustees, for the purpose of perpetuating the Hinds legacy for eternity. The order of succession was designed to be (1) Walter Hinds, eldest son; (2) Ralph Hinds, fourth son; (3) Walter Hinds, nephew and son-in-law, husband of daughter Anne Hinds; and (4) Richard Stephens, his grandson.

For the benefit of Walter, described in the will as Ralph's eldest son, the will directed Thomas Berry of Rockfield and Alexander Berry of Berrymount, both in the County of Cavan Esquire and to "their Heirs all that and those", the Towns and lands of Corrakane, Kilmainham, Clunomuet and Corrarde with their sub-denominations situate in the County of Cavan to be held in Trust for Ralph's eldest son Walter... "

" ... in trust to permit and suffer my said son Walter and his Assigns to take and receive the rents, issues and profits thereof during the term of his natural life"... and then after Walter's death the same situation for any male heirs, lawfully begotten by Walter, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births. And, should Walter not have any sons, then at Walter's death his inheritance was to be given to Walter's brother Ralph Hinds...So, next in line was Ralph, his fourth son and for his Assigns, for and during the term of his natural life and with the same conditions for receipt of rents, issues and profits outlined for Walter. And also with the same conditions of succession to Ralph's male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of their births.

Next in line was Ralph's nephew and son-in-law, Walter Hinds, husband of Ralph's daughter Anne Hinds, with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession previously reviewed.

The last in line was Ralph's grandson, Richard Stephens, again with all of the same conditions of trust, benefits and male succession.

As trustees, Thomas Berry and Alexander Berry and their Heirs during the natural life of the said Ralph Hinds were instructed to support the contingent remainders hereinafter limited from being defeated and destroyed and for that purpose to make entries and bring actions as occasion should require.

To his fourth son, Ralph Hinds and his heirs, he also gave, outside the trust, his interest in all of the town and lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Mulalvey in the County of Meath subject to Ralph paying his brother Alexander Hinds, Ralph the Elder's fifth son, forty pounds a year. The will provided, that in the event of non-payment, Alexander had the right to distrain (seize) those lands or any part thereof for the payment..

The will gave the responsibility for Alexander's £40 payment to his fourth son, Ralph. The will instructed Ralph to pay Alexander, during his natural life, at the rate of two even half-yearly payments on the first day of May and first day of November in every year. Alexander was given the liberty, in case of non-payment, to seize the town and lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Mulalvey in the County of Meath, or any part thereof, for payment.

Again, to his fourth son Ralph, this time in trust, he gave the Town and Lands of Nasterstown in the County of Meath and Toberlion, Meelick and Duffin, Nedd and Comaga in the County of Cavan. According to the will, the purpose of the trust was to support and preserve the contingent remainders from being defeated and destroyed, and instructed the trustees to make entries and bring actions as the case should require, while still permitting Ralph to take the rents, issues and profits during the term of his natural life. After son Ralph's death, the succession of inheritance was to follow the same pattern and conditions outlined earlier in the will: passing first to Ralph's male heirs, then to Ralph the Elder's nephew and son-in-law Walter Hinds and his wife Anne Hinds, and to their male heirs, then to Ralph the Elder's grandson, Richard Stephens, eldest son of Ralph's daughter Clarissa Stephens, and to his male heirs, the priority of inheritance to be in the Seniority of Age and order of births.

To his fourth son Ralph, he also gave all of his stock of cattle, horses, hay, corn, household furniture except as before excepted, and Plate Farming Utensils on the lands of Mulhussey, Munalvey or elsewhere.

His will further provides that the lands of Mulhussey, Kimmins Mill and Munalvey and all his several stocks of cattle thereon be subject to the payment of all his just debts and legacies except those bequeathed to his wife and children or such person as should be seized of the lands of Mulhussey, all being given the power to charge by Mortgage or otherwise. The will instructed son Ralph to charge and encumber all the several and respective lands, either given to him or in trust for him, for his younger children or for such person as should be seized of the lands, lawfully to be gotten with a sum not exceeding two thousand pounds.

The will provided, also, that his son Ralph should have the power of settling respectively on his wife or wives by way of jointure, any sum not exceeding the sum of one hundred pounds. Any such jointure was to be paid yearly out of such lands that belonged to son Ralph, who had the right, but not the obligation, to make the jointure.

To his son Ralph, he also gave all the rest and residue of his real and personal estate not already disposed of in his will. He also appointed son Ralph Hinds and his nephew and son-in-law Walter Hinds as his Executors.3
Inheritance* After inheriting his father's estate, Ralph Hinds appears to have led a country gentleman's life which, in those days, meant hunting, racing, betting and general extravagance, in which he was encouraged by his brothers-in-law. He kept a pack of harriers, and hunted the neighbouring country and so impoverished himself ultimately, that he lost all his property, except an annuity secured on the lands of Mulhussey.2
Residence* He lived subsequently at Ontario Terrace in Dublin.2
Relationship Note* The families of Ralph Hinds and George Thomas Bell Booth were thought to have been related in some way.4
(Father) Court ActionIn the marriage settlement of Charlotte's and Mary Anne's mother, Catherine Kelly, to Ralph Hinds, there was a clause charging £1000 for each of the daughters on the Mulhussey property. After the death of Mary Anne, this money was recovered by Charlotte, who inherited her sister's portion. After the Court of Chancery directed that part of the property be sold, to pay this money, Charlotte bought land that had belonged to her father and was situated near Killeshandra in the townlands of Toberlion and Meelick.2
Death*1843He died in 1843 at Ontario Terrace, Dublin, County Dublin, Ireland,2
Burial* and was buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery, Dublin. A monument to his memory stands close to the entrance gate of the cemetery. His daughter's name, Mary Anne Hinds, is also inscribed on her father's monument, which was erected by her sister, Charlotte, to their memory. The date on the monument is not correct for Ralph's death, and may be the date Charlotte's mother died in 1817 and/or the date of Mary Anne's death.2
Relationship Note*A typewritten note found in Dublin at the National Archives of Ireland in 2005 about the destructive behavior of Ralph Hinds, was authored by William Richard Gore Hinds. For many years we puzzled over the relationship between these two men. Eleven years later, in September 2016, our questions were answered. With great appreciation to a newly found Hinds cousin, we are able to report that William Richard Gore Hinds was a grandnephew of Ralph Hinds, both descending from Ralph Hinds (1741-1794) of Mulhussey, and a first cousin one time removed of the younger Ralph's murdered daughter Charlotte.2,1,5

Ralph Hinds1

d. December 1752
RelationshipsSon of John Hinds
Great-grandfather of Walter Hinds
ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Father*John Hinds1 d. 1706
Mother*Mary ______1
Name-DescriptiveThe descriptive name we used to clarify the identification of this Ralph Hinds, as we worked to place him correctly within the Hinds family, was Ralph Hinds ( -1752) of Kilmainham.
Marriage*He married Anne Hussey. The Marguerite Clayton source provided Anne's surname as "Hussey?" and the Isaac source identified her only as "Ann."1,2
Freeman*30 December 1714Ralph Hinds was made a Freeman of Cavan, County Cavan, Ireland, on 30 December 1714. The granting of this status meant that he was legally recognized as a white male over 21 years of age holding full rights of citizenship and free to engage in a trade or business, own land, and to vote. Since Ralph would have been well over the age of 21 in 1714, he may have been a new arrival to the area.3
Deed Memorial*16 September 1746 On 16 September 1746 Richard Booth of Drumcarban, County Cavan, and his son Robert Booth, and Ralph Hinds, also in the County of Cavan, registered a Memorial Articles of Marriage agreement in preparation for the marriage between Ralph's daughter, Margaret Hinds, and Robert Booth. The agreement stated that, in consideration of his affection for his son Robert Booth and of a Marriage Portion payment of one hundred twenty pounds received by Margaret Hinds from her father Ralph Hinds, Richard Booth granted immediately and forever confirmed to Robert and to Robert's and Margaret's lawful heirs, the one half of his Freehold called Drumcarban located in the Barony of Clanmahon, and then the other half at Richard's death. Richard agreed that the Freehold was to be free from all debts and, in case Margaret should survive her husband Robert, subject to an annuity of ten pounds a year to Margaret for life to be paid out of the lands of Drumcarban. It was further agreed in the articles that neither Richard nor Robert would sell, dispose of or contract any debt on the lands and that they should be passed to Robert's and Margaret's heirs forever. The articles were witnessed by Patrick Stephens of Ardvagh and Thomas Hinds and George Hinds of Kilmainham, all in the County of Cavan.4
Death*December 1752He died in December 17521,5
Burial*10 December 1752 and was buried on 10 December 1752 in Church Graveyard, Ballintemple Parish, County Cavan, Ireland.6,5

Ralph Hinds1

d. November 1750
Research Notes*Ralph Hinds is included on indexes with an Icon indicating he was a descendant of John Hinds ( -1706), the earliest Hinds originally identified, because we believe that all of the Hinds people included on the site were members of our Hinds family. He does not appear on the John Hinds Descendancy Chart, however, because their actual relationship has not been determined. The Ralph Hinds who was buried on 20 Nov 1750 has not yet been identified. We believe he was a member of one of our Hinds families, and our research continues. For now, however, he has been placed alone with no family relationships identified.1
Death*November 1750He died in November 1750.
Burial*20 November 1750Ralph Hinds was buried on 20 November 1750 in Church Graveyard, Ballintemple Parish, County Cavan, Ireland.1
