His will appointed his son Andrew Bell as sole executor and residuary legatee, and was witnessed by John Cartles, Robert Burrowes and Philip Boylan.5
(2nd Son) Estate and LandHis brother John's will directed that his estate in Kilnahard, County Cavan, his lands or farm of upper Creevy in County Longford which he held in lease from Thomas Marley Esq. deceased, his lands and farm of Aghaboy, County Cavan which he held under Lord Farnham, the town and lands of Moyleroe, County Westmeath which he held under the Marquis of Buckingham, and his two freehold lands of Creeve being a lease of lives renewable forever, all be put in trust, and named Matthew Crawford Esq. and Reverend James Bond as trustees.

His beloved wife Ann Bell was to receive, for life, the profits from his estate in Kilnahard, his farm in upper Creevy and his farm of Aghaboy. After her death the line of succession was to begin with John's brother, their father's third son, Andrew Bell of Creevy, County Longford Esq. for his life, and then to John's nephew John Bell and his heirs, described in the will as the "now eldest son of his brother Andrew". The remaining succession was to be to the male heirs of his brother Andrew with "his present wife" Sarah Bell as his brother Andrew shall by will direct, with the further instruction that such son of his brother Andrew was to pay to his mother Sarah Bell an annuity of £20 per year for life. If his brother Andrew should die without male issue, then next in line was to be John's brother, their father's second son, Robert Bell Booth of Drumcarban, County Cavan and his heirs subject to the payments already mentioned.

His lands of Moyeroe in County Westmeath and Creeve in County Longford he left to his brother Andrew for his life and then to his eldest son John and his heirs, but also to be subject to an annuity of £20 per year to Andrew's wife Sarah for her life. As with the other lands, the remaining succession was to be to the male heirs of his brother Andrew, or with that failing then to his brother Robert and his heirs, subject to the payments mentioned. Later in the will, John stated again that should his brother Robert Bell Booth become possessed in succession, Robert was to pay Sarah, the wife of Andrew, £20 per year for her life.

John's will confirmed that his wife Ann Bell was entitled by their marriage settlement to an annuity of £60 per year for her life charged on his estate of Bellsgrove alias Aghnacreevy in County Cavan. Subject to that annuity, his will then devised the lands to his brother Robert Bell Booth and his heirs.

Then outside the trust, John left his title to his lands of Clooneen in County Longford to his wife Ann; £150 to his nieces Alicia Bell and Lettice Bell, the eldest and second daughters of his brother Andrew; his title to the farm of Clonoose in County Cavan which he held by lease from William Welch of Hilltown, County Westmeath, Esq. to his brother Andrew and his assigns forever, subject to Andrew paying the sum of £300 to their brother Robert; his title in Upper and Lower Ballinulty in County Longford to his brother Andrew and James Daly, attorney, son of John Daly of Granard, County Longford, merchant, for their own sole use; his title to his two fields at Cartrons in County Longford which he held under William Felk Grenville, containing about 12 acres, and also the profits accruing to him out of a field in Rathcronan in County Longford which he held under Richard Webb of Lisryan, Esq., and also the profits due to him out of the lands of Coolnagun in County Westmeath which he held by lease from Robert Sproule Esq. to his two nieces Mary Irwin and Margaret Irwin, daughters of John Irwin of Killeshandra, apothecary by his sister Mary Anne Irwin alias Bell, deceased. John directed in his will that the legacies to Mary and Margaret were to be used for their education until age 21 or marriage; and his title to his lands of Derrymacegan and Moneybeg in County Westmeath to his brother-in-law George Kerr of Clareisland, County Westmeath and his heirs.

Additional heirs included James Daly, Hugh Kerr, Simon Griffith, William Stratford, Francis Wise, John Keirnan and Mary Keirnan. To Hugh Kerr of Granard in County Longford, and his assigns forever, he bequeathed back the title to his farm of Bracklon in County Cavan which he held from Hugh Kerr; to Simon Griffith, also of Granard, he gave his title to the two fields of the lands of Cartrons in County Longford now in his possession containing 6 acres, and also his wearing apparel; to William Stratford and Francis Wise, as a token of their faithful service to him, he gave his title to the lands of Rathcronan now in their possession which was held by lease under Edmund Reilly of Ballaghgowla, County Longford; to John Keirnan, his servant, and his wife Mary Keirnan alias Wisal, he bequeathed £50.

The residue of his estate, real and personal, he bequeathed to his beloved wife Ann Bell and her heirs, and added that should counsel advise that his wife shall, after his decease, execute a release of title to her dower which she is entitled to out of his lands, and should she refuse to execute such release, then the bequests left to her shall be void.

John's will appointed his beloved wife Ann Bell and his brother Andrew Bell executors and was witnessed by L. R. Robertson, John Beatty and Richard Webb.

He added a codicil to his will that same day bequeathing all his furniture and concerns, and his carriages and concerns, to his beloved wife Ann Bell, and also her watch and ornaments, stating none of those items shall be subject to any debts.6
