Samuel Donaldson1

ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Marriage*He married ______ Bell, daughter of Andrew Bell and Lettice ______.1
(Witness to Deed) Marriage Settlement2 June 1752Samuel was identified as of the town of Cavan in County Cavan, gentleman, when he witnessed an articles of marriage agreement dated 2 June 1752 made between Andrew Bell of Aghnacreevy, County Cavan, 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. The two Andrew Bells were Samuel's father-in-law and brother-in-law.2
(Son-in-Law) Probate13 March 1756Probate was granted on the estate of his father-in-law 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.3
(Son-in-Law) EstateSamuel Donaldson was an executor for the will of his father-in-law 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.3

The large brick house was valued at £4,000 and the rooms were described as a Study, a large Front Room, a small room between the 2 front chambers, a second Front Room, a Kitchen Chamber, a north Front Chamber, a Keeping Room Chamber, a Chamber over the Study, an Upper Chamber over the Study, another Upper Chamber, and two additional upper Chambers. His cash and bonds were valued at just under £7,000, and his library of books at just under £1,000.
