Marriage Settlement*2 June 1752A memorial of certain articles of marriage dated 2 June 1752 was made between Andrew Bell of Aghnacreevy, County Cavan, gentleman and Andrew Bell, his son and heir apparent, of the one part, Ann Clarke of Putiaghan, spinster, of the other part and Walter Hinds of Corrakane of the third part, all in the county of Cavan concerning a marriage to be had between Andrew Bell, the son of Andrew, and Ann Clarke. In consideration of £177, 16 shillings and 3 pence secured to be paid by Walter Hinds, Andrew Bell the father assigned and made over unto Andrew Bell his son all his right, title and interest in and to the lands of Aghnacreevy, he paying unto his father during his life and also during the life of his mother Lettice £14 yearly to commence from the first day of May next. Then Andrew, the father, for the considerations mentioned, assigned and made over to Andrew, his son, all his right, title and interest in and to the lands of Ballyheelan and after his death to the male heirs of Andrew lawfully begotten on the body of Ann. And it was thereby agreed that in case Ann should survive Andrew, she should enjoy one third full parts of all lands and chattels as a jointure, and in case that Andrew the son should not have any male issue, then the lands of Aghnacreevy should be left to Robert Bell, the father Andrew's son, and Robert's male issue. And in case Robert should not have any male issue, then to the female issue of Andrew Bell, the son. The agreement also gave Andrew, the son, the power to settle a proper provision for his female issue. Witnesses to the document included Thomas Hinds, Samuel Stephens, Walter Bell and Samuel Donaldson, all members of the Hinds-Clarke-Bell extended family. The memorial deed was registered on 31 March 1756.2
