Samuel Deering1

d. 23 October 1671
Marriage*1647He first appeared in the records of Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), when married, as his first wife, Bethia Baxter, daughter of Gregory Baxter and Margaret Paddy, in 1647.2,3,4,5,6
(Husband) Death3 January 1649/50Samuel became a widower when Bethia (Baxter) Deering died on 3 January 1649/50.7,8,9
Marriage*5 November 1651He married second Mary Ray, daughter of Simon Ray and Mary Rowning, on 5 November 1651 in Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England). They were married by Mr. Flint of Concord.10,5,11,12,2,13
(Husband) Death1 July 1657Samuel became a widower for the second time when Mary (Ray) Deering died on 1 July 1657.14,15,16,13
Marriage*10 November 1657He married third Mary Newcomb, daughter of Francis Newcomb and Rachel ______, on 10 November 1657 in Braintree. They were married by John Endecott, the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.1,5,17,18,19,20,2,21,22
Will*2 June 1659Samuel's father-in-law, Gregory Baxter, in his will dated 2 June 1659, left his son-in-law, Samuel Deering, his "little piece of salt meadow adjoining his own house, being in quantitie about an acre of ground." Seventeen days later, on 19 June 1659, Gregory added a codicil that voided Samuel's original gift and substituted two weather sheep for the land which, instead, was to go to Baxter's wife Margaret and their son John. To his granddaughter Bethiah Deering he gave £10 to be paid to her when she became 16 years of age. Also to Bethiah, he bequeathed one black calf of a year old and one black young ewe sheep, both to be delivered to her father to be improved by him for her use until she reached 16 years of age.2,23,24
Relocation*April 1661 In April 1661, the two families of Mary and Samuel Deering, along with Samuel's former mother-in-law Mary (Rowing) Ray George and her second husband Peter George, were among the first company of settlers on Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. The Deering family returned to Braintree, however, before 1670.25,2
Death*23 October 1671He died on 23 October 1671 at Braintree.26
Administration*31 October 1671Administration of his estate was granted to his widow Mary (Newcomb) Deering on 31 October 1671 in Suffolk County. A portion of his estate was to be divided equally among his "eight" children. They were not identified by name, however, and of his children, the births or baptisms of only seven were recorded in Braintree. For an eighth child, Samuel Deering of Wrentham is highly probably. As the first daughter Sarah died young, there must have been another child, probably a daughter, to make up the tally of eight who survived their father.2
(Deceased) Court Action28 July 1674Joseph Adams filed a complaint against the estate of Samuel Deering and on 28 July 1674 Samuel's widow Mary (Newcomb) Deering was ordered to appear in court to answer the complaint, and in the meantime not to alienate any of the estate. She presented her account on 27 October 1674 and was ordered to pay 20 shillings each to the youngest seven children as they arrived at their respective ages, "the eldest having had her portion already." If there was any land at Quinebauge (Plainfield, Connecticut) belonging to the deceased Samuel Deering, it was to be divided equally among his eight children.2

Alexander Delanouze1

Residence*1 August 1755He was described on 1 August 1755 as being of Kildrumferton, County Longford, Ireland.1
(Executor) Probate13 March 1756Probate was granted on the estate of Andrew Bell of Ardleny on 13 March 1756 to Robert Bell, the son and one of the executors named in Andrew's will, saving the right of Lettice Bell, Samuel Donaldson, Reverend Michael Neligan and Alexander Delanouze, the other executors.1
(Executor) EstateAlexander Delanouze was an executor for the will of Andrew Bell of Ardleny. Andrew's will confirmed that his wife Lettice Bell was to receive £14 yearly for life out of the lands of Aghnacreevy as reserved to her by their marriage settlement upon the marriage of his son Andrew Bell. He bequeathed his son Andrew 5 shillings, having already settled on him the lands of Aghnacreevy. His son Robert Bell was to receive his title and the lease of Ardleny when he came of age and his daughter Ann was to receive £100 provided she marry into a good protestant family. His granddaughters, Lettice Donaldson, Lettice Hinds and Lettice Ginty were each to receive £10 to be raised out of the lands of Lavagh upon their marriages, and in case any of the granddaughters should die unmarried, their legacies were to revert to their respective mothers.

Andrew's will then reviewed the line of succession, stating that if his son Andrew were to die without male issue, then the estate settled on him was to revert to the testator's son Robert Bell and his male issue. Failing such, his interest in Aghnacreevy was to revert to the male issue of his eldest daughter and so on to the male issue of his youngest daughter successively. If his son Robert Bell were to die without male or female issue, the profits of Ardleny and Lavagh were to return in the same kind to his other five daughters and their heirs. (None of his children, other than Andrew and Robert, were named.)

He appointed his loving son Robert Bell, his wife Lettice Bell, his son-in-law Samuel Donaldson, Reverend Michael Neligan and Alexander Delanouze executors, and stated his desire that his son Robert might be directed by his other executors, and that he was not to marry without their consent. He further directed that the legacies charged on the lands of Lavagh were to be paid out of profits thereof, and further profits were to then return to his son Robert and his issue.

The will was witnessed by his son-in-law John Ginty, John Wilson and George Finley.1
