ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Marriage*1800She married Thomas Hinds, son of Thomas Hinds and Anne Slator.1
(Wife) DeathAnne became a widow when Thomas Hinds died.1,2
Will1811Her husband left a will, which was probated in 1811, appointing his wife Anne as Executrix.2,1
(Widow) Deed Memorial30 June 1821Anne was party to a Memorial Deed of lease and release dated 29 and 30 June 1821 regarding the conditions and release of the Hinds family's lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, County Cavan, made between Walter Hinds Esq. of the city of Dublin, eldest son and heir at law of Walter Hinds late of Bruce Hall Esq. in the county of Cavan deceased, and also administrator of the estate of his sister Martha Hinds, also deceased, of the first part, George Warner of College Green in the city of Dublin, his uncle and one of the aldermen of that city, and his mother Anne (Hinds) Hinds of Blessington street in or near the city of Dublin, widow of Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall, deceased, who were named as trustees and executors in the last will and testament of Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall deceased, of the second part, George Hinds of the city of Dublin Esq., youngest son and one of the legatees named in the last will and testament of Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall deceased of the third part, Isaac Hinds of the city of Dublin, watchmaker, sole executor named in the last will and testament of his mother, Anne (Slator) Hinds, the elder, hereinafter which the said Anne Hinds the elder was the sole executrix named in the last will and testament of her son Alexander Hinds deceased, hereinafter also named Samuel Kennedy of Killeshandra in the county of Cavan, apothecary, and Elizabeth Kennedy otherwise Hinds his wife, and Anne McCluskey of the city of Dublin, widow and executrix of the last will and testament of Thomas Hinds late of the city of Dublin, gentleman deceased and which said Isaac Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Elizabeth Kennedy and Thomas Hinds were four of the children of Thomas Hinds the elder, thereinafter named of the fourth part, and Thomas Burrowes, Arnold Robinson Burrowes and John Woolmore of Stradone House, County Cavan, Benarth, Wales and Bruton Street, London, respectively, of the fifth part.

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. And further reciting that in order to discharge the several demands of Walter Hinds Esq., by and with the consent and approbation of his mother Anne (Hinds) Hinds, proposed to the executors of Robert Burrowes deceased, Thomas Burrowes, Arnold Robinson Burrowes and John Woolmore, to sell to them the lands and premises freed and discharged of the annuity of £100 to his mother Anne Hinds, and that Thomas Burrowes, Arnold Robinson Burrowes and John Woolmore had agreed to such proposal.
