William Smith

Residence*William Smith Esq. lived at Laracor, County Meath, Ireland.1
(Trustee) Marriage Settlement15 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.1
