Priscilla Mullins

b. between 1600 and 1602, d. after 1680
Birth*between 1600 and 1602Priscilla Mullins was born between 1600 and 1602 in Dorking, Surrey County, England.
(Young Female) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620Priscilla Mullins was about 18 years of age when she sailed with her parents and younger brother onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. When the Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on 6 Sep 1620, she was carrying 102 passengers, including three pregnant women. During the voyage one baby, Oceanus Hopkins, was born making a total of 103 passengers. Three days before land was sighted, passenger William Button died, so when the Mayflower arrived there were again 102 passengers. A full list of the passengers may be accessed by clicking on the PDF icon at the end of this section and those included in this project so far include adult males John Alden, Francis Cooke and James Chilton, adult females Susanna (Furner) Chilton, young male John Cooke, and young females Priscilla Mullins and Mary Chilton.

During the weeks ahead, while everyone still "lived" on the ship, the men explored the area looking for a place to build their settlement. Another baby, Peregrine (meaning "wanderer") White, son of William and Susannah, was born in America onboard the Mayflower on 20 Nov, the first English child born to the Pilgrims in the New World. The White's servant, Edward Thompson, died on 4 Dec, followed shortly by 7 year old Jasper More, one of the four illegitimate children placed on the Mayflower in the care of the William Brewster family by their mother's humiliated husband. Two of the other More children died as well. And, tragically, Dorothy May Bradford, William Bradford's wife, slipped over the side of the anchored Mayflower and drowned. In early December the group decided to move the ship and look somewhere else for a settlement location. The ship and its passengers left Provincetown Harbor on 15 Dec. Two days later on 17 Dec, the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth Harbor and on 21 Dec the first landing party arrived at the site of what would become the settlement of Plymouth. The weather, however, was so terrible they could not begin work on shore for several days. In the meantime, the Mayflower had become a hospital ship, the passengers suffering from colds, coughs, fevers and scurvy. James Chilton had died even before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Richard Britteridge passed away the day the ship arrived, and two days later Solomon Prower, the stepson of Christopher Martin, the ship's designated "governor", died. The following day Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.

By the end of January 1621, enough of the settlement had been built to begin unloading provisions from the Mayflower, however the emigrants' ordeal was far from over. With two and sometimes three people dying a day during February and March, almost everyone had lost a loved one. Christopher Martin died in early January, his wife Mary soon after. The Rigsdale, Tinker and Turner families were completely wiped out, followed by Susannah Chilton whose husband James had died while the ship was at Provincetown Harbor. The Chilton's 13 year old daughter Mary had become an orphan. Also orphaned that first winter were 17 year old Joseph Rogers, 12 year old Samuel Fuller, 18 year old John Crackston, 17 year old Priscilla Mullins and 13 year old Elizabeth Tilley, who also lost her aunt and uncle, Edward and Ann Tilley. By mid-March, William Bradford, Myles Standish, Francis Eaton and Isaac Allerton, who had three children between the ages of eight and four, had all become widowers. When William White died, his widow Susannah was left with their newborn son Peregrine and 5 year old Resolved. Susannah was the plantation's only surviving widow. By that first spring, 52 of the 102 who had originally arrived at Provincetown were dead. Half, however, survived. And, miraculously, the families of William Brewster, Francis Cooke, Stephen Hopkins and John Billington were completely untouched by all the disease. The remaining "Pilgrims" worked, prayed and fought together and their settlement of Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Colony had begun.1,2,3
Marriage*12 May 1622She married John Alden on 12 May 1622 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).
Death*after 1680She died after 1680 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).

Reverend Michael Neligan1

Residence*1 August 1755He was described on 1 August 1755, and also at his death, as being of Granard, County Longford, Ireland.1,2
(Executor) Probate13 March 1756Probate was granted on the estate of Andrew Bell of Ardleny on 13 March 1756 to Robert Bell, the son and one of the executors named in Andrew's will, saving the right of Lettice Bell, Samuel Donaldson, Reverend Michael Neligan and Alexander Delanouze, the other executors.2
(Executor) EstateReverend Michael Neligan was an executor for the will of Andrew Bell of Ardleny. Andrew's will confirmed that his wife Lettice Bell was to receive £14 yearly for life out of the lands of Aghnacreevy as reserved to her by their marriage settlement upon the marriage of his son Andrew Bell. He bequeathed his son Andrew 5 shillings, having already settled on him the lands of Aghnacreevy. His son Robert Bell was to receive his title and the lease of Ardleny when he came of age and his daughter Ann was to receive £100 provided she marry into a good protestant family. His granddaughters, Lettice Donaldson, Lettice Hinds and Lettice Ginty were each to receive £10 to be raised out of the lands of Lavagh upon their marriages, and in case any of the granddaughters should die unmarried, their legacies were to revert to their respective mothers.

Andrew's will then reviewed the line of succession, stating that if his son Andrew were to die without male issue, then the estate settled on him was to revert to the testator's son Robert Bell and his male issue. Failing such, his interest in Aghnacreevy was to revert to the male issue of his eldest daughter and so on to the male issue of his youngest daughter successively. If his son Robert Bell were to die without male or female issue, the profits of Ardleny and Lavagh were to return in the same kind to his other five daughters and their heirs. (None of his children, other than Andrew and Robert, were named.)

He appointed his loving son Robert Bell, his wife Lettice Bell, his son-in-law Samuel Donaldson, Reverend Michael Neligan and Alexander Delanouze executors, and stated his desire that his son Robert might be directed by his other executors, and that he was not to marry without their consent. He further directed that the legacies charged on the lands of Lavagh were to be paid out of profits thereof, and further profits were to then return to his son Robert and his issue.

The will was witnessed by his son-in-law John Ginty, John Wilson and George Finley.2
Probate*1761His will was probated in 1761.1

Father*Frederick Netterville1,2,3 d. 1785
Mother*Mary Keogh4
Birth*1777Marcella Netterville was born in 1777.5
Inheritance* After her father died in 1785, Marcella inherited the family's extensive land holdings.4
Marriage*1822She married John Gerrard of Gibbstown, County Meath, son of Thomas Gerrard and Elinor Carroll, in 1822.6,1,4,2,3
Occupation*Soon after their marriage, John and Marcella began to convert Marcella's 7,000 acre estate in County Galway into grazing pasture. In order to make that happen 67 families, between 270 and 447 persons, "had to be put off their land, their cottages destroyed, all to be replaced by cattle bought at the Ballinasloe fair."4
Historical Note*13 March 1846 Other landlords followed the Gerrard's lead as they began showing that tenanted land could be made far more profitable by converting it into grazing pasture. Then, with the spread of the Great Famine, and with many small farms unable to produce and becoming worthless, more and more landlords began to replace their tenants with cattle. George Charles Bingham, Earl of Lucan, alone evicted 2,000 people between 1846 and 1849 and would become known as the Great Exterminator. Ireland's first official figures of recorded evictions were in 1849, and 16,686 evictions were recorded that year alone.

Information about the evictions was learned from a newspaper article published in the Galway Advertiser. A transcription of the full article may be viewed here.4
(Wife) DeathNovember 1858Marcella became a widow when John Gerrard died in November 1858. The couple had no children, and John was succeeded as Heir at Law at Gibbstown by his nephew Thomas, eldest son of his younger brother Thomas.7,8,2,9
Death*18 November 1865She died on 18 November 1865 in County Meath. Her primary beneficiary was reported to be Matthew Elias Corbally.1,10,2,3
