b. 1755, d. 2 December 1837
Birth*1755John Woolmore was born in 17552
Christening4 May 1755 and was christened on 4 May 1755 at St. Mary Whitechapel, London, Stepney, Middlesex County, England.3
(Executor) WillJohn was one of three executors appointed by the will of Robert Burrowes Esq. of London who died in February 1819. Among other bequests and directives by Robert's last will and testament, he had directed the residue of his fortune to be laid out in lands as contiguous as practicable to Stradone in the county of Cavan, Ireland. In addition to John, Robert's will appointed his only son and heir, Thomas Burrowes of Stradone, and nephew Arnold Robinson Burrowes of Benarth, Wales, eldest son and heir of Robert's brother Thomas, his executors.1
Probate*18 December 1819John was appointed executor of the estate of Robert Burrowes, and a notice appeared in the London Gazette on 18 December 1819 stating that pursuant to a Decree of the High Court of Chancery, made to a cause Woolmore against Burrowes, the creditors of Robert Burrowes, late of Bolton Street, Piccadilly, in the county of Middlesex, and of Heston, near Hounslow, in the same county, Esq. deceased (who died in or about the month of February 1819) are forthwith to come in and prove their debts to one of the Masters of the Court or, in default thereof, they will be excluded the benefit of the Decree John Woolmore.4
Residence*1821He lived on Bruton Street, London, Mayfair, Middlesex County, England, in 1821.1
(Executor) Deed Memorial30 June 1821John, as an executor of Robert Burrowes' estate, 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.
