Marriage*She married Michael Gibney.1
Marriage Settlement*4 July 1794 On 4 July 1794, Michael Gibney of Dormstown, County Meath, Ireland, Gentleman, and his wife Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of the first part, Thomas Hinds of the City of Dublin, Gentleman, Attorney-at-Law and John Gibney of Navan in the County of Meath, Gentleman, Doctor of Physics, of the second part, and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, widow, Elizabeth Gerrard and Catherine Gerrard, spinsters, of the third part, made a Memorial of an Indented Deed of Settlement. Reciting among other things that the deed was under the will of the Gerrard sisters' father, William Gerrard, and that a marriage was already had between Anne Gerrard and Michael Gibney, the memorial deed agreement outlined the terms and conditions of the couple's marriage settlement.1
(Wife) Deathbefore 29 April 1814Anne became a widow when Michael Gibney died before 29 April 1814.2
(5th Daughter) Deed Memorial29 April 1814Anne was a participant with others in her extended Gerrard family, on a Memorial deed dated 29 April 1814 that included her niece Eleanora Anne and her husband Thomas Potterton of Ballaghtalion, County Meath, Esq. of the first part, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds of Trim, County Meath, widow and mother of Eleanora Anne, Martha Hinds of Trim, spinster, daughter of Sarah, and John Hinds of the City of Dublin, gentleman and only son of Sarah of Trim of the second part, Anne (Gerrard) Gibney of Eccles Street in the City of Dublin, widow, John Small of Rutland Square in the City of Dublin, Esq. and Catherine (Gerrard) Small, his wife, and Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, widow of the third part, the Reverend Mungo Henry Waller of Allenstown in the County of Meath, clerk of the fourth part, and Thomas Hinds of Newtown in County Kildare, Esq. of the fifth part, made a Memorial of an indentured deed agreement. The deed began with a review four other pertinent events: William Gerrard's 1788 will and subsequent 1790 probate, the death of Matthew Hinds, husband of William's daughter, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, before or in 1809, and the 1813 marriage settlement agreement for Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Potterton.

Reciting that William Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, gentleman, deceased, made his will dated 24 December 1788 and thereby, amongst bequests to his other daughters, bequeathed unto the Reverend Singleton Harlowe, Robert Waller and James Gibney, his trustees, an amount of £1200 in trust that they and his survivors and the executors and administrators of such survivors, should place out the same at interest and permit his daughter Sarah Hinds to receive the yearly interest for her separate use. And further, that after the death of his daughter Sarah, the trustees, their executors and administrators, should transfer the £1200 to such of Sarah's children as should be then living, and that by her will she should approve and appoint his daughters Rebecca Hinds, Elizabeth, Anne and Catherine Gerrard executors. Reciting further that William Gerrard died without altering his will and that it was proved in the Court of Prerogative Probate granted to Elizabeth Gerrard, Catherine Gerrard, since married to John Small and Anne Gibney, three of the executors named and that the £1200 bequeathed by the will to Sarah was secured by the bond of Robert Waller, deceased, then of Ministown in the County of Meath, Esq. bearing date of 22 February 1790 with an attorney's warrant for confession of judgment in the final sum of £2400 conditioned for payment of the principal sum of £1200 under the will of William Gerrard upon which Anne Gibney, Rebecca Hinds, John Small and Catherine his wife did, around 1809, obtain a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas against Robert Waller stating that Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah, was since dead leaving his widow Sarah and three children, namely Eleanora Anne, Martha and John Hinds, all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years. Next the deed explained that, by an indented deed of four parts dated 26 August 1813 and made between Thomas Potterton, Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd of the first part, Sarah Hinds of the second part, Eleanora Anne, then Hinds, of the third part, and Henry Potterton, gentleman, and Rebecca Hinds of the fourth part, the deed recited that a marriage was intended shortly to be had between Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, and reciting that £1200 was held in trust for Sarah, mother of Eleanora Anne, and that on the result of the marriage being accomplished, Sarah had agreed that £600 of the £1200 should be payable to Thomas Potterton immediately after Sarah's death; then the agreement witnessed that in consideration of the intended marriage and the £600, Thomas made a provision for Eleanora in case she should outlive him and her issue. The indenture further witnessed a deed in which Sarah, in consideration of the intended marriage, had made provisions for Eleanora Anne and did give, grant and appoint the £600, being one-half of the £1200, to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators and assigns to be payable to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators or assigns immediately after the death her mother, Sarah. Then it was witnessed that the marriage had taken effect and that Thomas Potterton, by virtue of his marriage settlement deed, was entitled to the £600 upon Sarah's decease and that Thomas desired to sell the £600 and had applied to Reverend Mungo Henry Waller who had agreed to the purchase. Thomas had agreed to accept £400, which Mungo had agreed to pay to him. The other parties to the deed had agreed to ratify and confirm the purchase and to relinquish to Mungo all their right, title and claim in default of an appointment by Sarah, or in case of the decease of any or all of her children in her lifetime, or in case Sarah should execute her power of appointment so as to otherwise disappoint Thomas and Eleanora Anne or their issue of the £600 or of any part thereof. The indenture witnessed that, upon execution of the agreement and in consideration of the £400 paid by Mungo to Thomas Potterton, and of £1 apiece paid to Eleanora Anne Potterton, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, Martha Hinds, John Hinds, Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, John and Catherine (Gerrard) Small and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas and Eleanora Potterton, Sarah, Martha and John Hinds, did grant, bargain and assign, and Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small, and Anne Gibney confirmed unto Mungo H. Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns, the principal sum of £600, and reciting that by deed and Memorial, Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small and Anne Gibney did assign to Thomas Hinds as trustee, his executors, administrators and assigns, a judgment. It was thereby declared that the £600 was invested with Thomas Hinds in trust as to £600 and the interest thereof from the death of Sarah Hinds for Mungo H. Waller and the interest due and to grow due on the fact of the judgment in trust for Sarah Hinds, her executors, administrators and assigns for life. And after her decease, as to the monies secured by the judgment above, £600 for the person or persons whom Sarah should appoint. The deed and Memorial was signed and witnessed by each of the parties involved on various dates, and was registered on 4 May 1814.2

Birth*between 1715 and 1719Our sources estimate that John Gerrard was born about between 1715 and 1719, and we suggest his birth was probably earlier. His daughter Sarah was born in 1740 and it was likely that John was at least 21 years of age when he married. Even if Sarah was his first child, we estimate his birth to have been between 1715 and 1719.4,1

Marriage*He married Mehetable ______.3
Death*September 1787He died in September 1787 in Berkeley County, Virginia.4
Historical Note*1787The town of Gerrardstown, Berkeley County, Virginia, was established as a town in 1787 by the Virginia House of Burgesses. The town was named for the Reverend John Gerrard, tie first pastor of Mill Creek Baptist Church which was organized by early settlers around 1743. Shortly after being ordained in 1751, Reverend Samuel Heaton was also assigned to the Mill Creek Baptist church for a short time, possibly to study under the Reverend John Gerrard. Some descendants of Samuel Heaton and his brothers intermarried with descendants of other families of this Baptist church as they began their move west toward Ohio around 1796.5

The deed began with a review four other pertinent events: William Gerrard's 1788 will and subsequent 1790 probate, the death of Matthew Hinds, husband of William's daughter, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, before or in 1809, and the 1813 marriage settlement agreement for Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Potterton.

Reciting that William Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, gentleman, deceased, made his will dated 24 December 1788 and thereby, amongst bequests to his other daughters, bequeathed unto the Reverend Singleton Harlowe, Robert Waller and James Gibney, his trustees, an amount of £1200 in trust that they and his survivors and the executors and administrators of such survivors, should place out the same at interest and permit his daughter Sarah Hinds to receive the yearly interest for her separate use. And further, that after the death of his daughter Sarah, the trustees, their executors and administrators, should transfer the £1200 to such of Sarah's children as should be then living, and that by her will she should approve and appoint his daughters Rebecca Hinds, Elizabeth, Anne and Catherine Gerrard executors. Reciting further that William Gerrard died without altering his will and that it was proved in the Court of Prerogative Probate granted to Elizabeth Gerrard, Catherine Gerrard, since married to John Small and Anne Gibney, three of the executors named and that the £1200 bequeathed by the will to Sarah was secured by the bond of Robert Waller, deceased, then of Ministown in the County of Meath, Esq. bearing date of 22 February 1790 with an attorney's warrant for confession of judgment in the final sum of £2400 conditioned for payment of the principal sum of £1200 under the will of William Gerrard upon which Anne Gibney, Rebecca Hinds, John Small and Catherine his wife did, around 1809, obtain a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas against Robert Waller stating that Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah, was since dead leaving his widow Sarah and three children, namely Eleanora Anne, Martha and John Hinds, all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years. Next the deed explained that, by an indented deed of four parts dated 26 August 1813 and made between Thomas Potterton, Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd of the first part, Sarah Hinds of the second part, Eleanora Anne, then Hinds, of the third part, and Henry Potterton, gentleman, and Rebecca Hinds of the fourth part, the deed recited that a marriage was intended shortly to be had between Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, and reciting that £1200 was held in trust for Sarah, mother of Eleanora Anne, and that on the result of the marriage being accomplished, Sarah had agreed that £600 of the £1200 should be payable to Thomas Potterton immediately after Sarah's death; then the agreement witnessed that in consideration of the intended marriage and the £600, Thomas made a provision for Eleanora in case she should outlive him and her issue. The indenture further witnessed a deed in which Sarah, in consideration of the intended marriage, had made provisions for Eleanora Anne and did give, grant and appoint the £600, being one-half of the £1200, to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators and assigns to be payable to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators or assigns immediately after the death her mother, Sarah. Then it was witnessed that the marriage had taken effect and that Thomas Potterton, by virtue of his marriage settlement deed, was entitled to the £600 upon Sarah's decease and that Thomas desired to sell the £600 and had applied to Reverend Mungo Henry Waller who had agreed to the purchase. Thomas had agreed to accept £400, which Mungo had agreed to pay to him. The other parties to the deed had agreed to ratify and confirm the purchase and to relinquish to Mungo all their right, title and claim in default of an appointment by Sarah, or in case of the decease of any or all of her children in her lifetime, or in case Sarah should execute her power of appointment so as to otherwise disappoint Thomas and Eleanora Anne or their issue of the £600 or of any part thereof. The indenture witnessed that, upon execution of the agreement and in consideration of the £400 paid by Mungo to Thomas Potterton, and of £1 apiece paid to Eleanora Anne Potterton, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, Martha Hinds, John Hinds, Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, John and Catherine (Gerrard) Small and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas and Eleanora Potterton, Sarah, Martha and John Hinds, did grant, bargain and assign, and Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small, and Anne Gibney confirmed unto Mungo H. Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns, the principal sum of £600, and reciting that by deed and Memorial, Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small and Anne Gibney did assign to Thomas Hinds as trustee, his executors, administrators and assigns, a judgment. It was thereby declared that the £600 was invested with Thomas Hinds in trust as to £600 and the interest thereof from the death of Sarah Hinds for Mungo H. Waller and the interest due and to grow due on the fact of the judgment in trust for Sarah Hinds, her executors, administrators and assigns for life. And after her decease, as to the monies secured by the judgment above, £600 for the person or persons whom Sarah should appoint.

After first reciting that Ralph Hinds was seized in fee simple of (owned unconditionally) the different lands contained in the deed, and also reciting that a marriage was intended to be thereby had between Matthew Hinds and Sarah Gerrard, the Deed of Release identified the portions of his lands Ralph was agreeing to give in trust for the benefit of his son Matthew Hinds and his wife Sarah Gerrard with William Gerrard of Liscartin, whose relationship to Sarah was not identified, and Matthew's brother Thomas Hinds as trustees. Ralph Hinds first granted, bargained, sold, released and confirmed to William Gerrard and Thomas Hinds the towns and lands of Nedd, Cornagee, the part of Toberlion called Duffin and Meltea, otherwise Mellick, situated, lying and being in the County of Cavan, with all and singular their appurtenances. Thomas Hinds and William Gerrard as trustees, their heirs and assigns, were to hold the said lands and premises thereby granted and released, with the appurtenances, to their own use and maintenance, and partially, after the marriage of Matthew and Sarah, to the use of Matthew and his assigns during his life. And from and after his death, to the use of the said trustees for five hundred years; to the use of the first son of Matthew by Sarah and the heirs of such first son; in default thereof to the use of the second, third, fourth and all and every son and sons of Matthew by Sarah, successively, one after another in seniority of the heirs of all and every such son and sons, such sons of the heirs of his body to be preferred.

In case the said Sarah Gerrard should survive the said Matthew Hinds and there should be no issue of their marriage living at his decease or if any issue and the same should die before the age of twenty-one, the Trust was to pay or to authorize said Sarah and her assigns to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands included in this Grant and Release, a yearly annuity rent charge of £100 during her natural life for her and their own use and benefit; and in case Sarah should survive Matthew, and there be living issue at his decease, then and so long as the said children lived, the Trust was to pay or to authorize Sarah to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands an annual annuity rent charge of £70, in lieu of the said annuity of £100, during her natural life. Sarah's annual annuity, whichever it turned out to be, was to be paid half yearly on the first of November and the first of May by equal portions without deductions. The first payment was to be made on such of the said days which shall first happen next after the decease of Matthew Hinds, with a power for Sarah and her assigns to distrain (seize for payment of the debt); and in case there should be an eldest son and one or more other child or children of Matthew Hinds on the body of Sarah Gerrard to be begotten, or in case there should not be any son of the intended marriage and all their issue should be a daughter or daughters, then William Gerrard of Liscarton and Thomas Hinds, their executors, administrators and assigns, should by sale or mortgage during the said term of five hundred years, levy or borrow £1,000 for the portion or portions of the other child or children and pay or make over the said sum among the child or children other than an eldest or only son in such shares or proportions as Matthew Hinds by deed or by his last will should appoint.

And, concerning the said five hundred years to the Trustees to support the other contingent premises and for the other purposes therein and partially upon trust. In case the said Sarah Gerrard should survive the said Matthew Hinds and there should be no issue of their marriage living at his decease or if any issue and the same should die before the age of twenty-one, the Trust was to pay or to authorize said Sarah and her assigns to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands included in this Grant and Release, a yearly annuity rent charge of £100 during her natural life for her and their own use and benefit; and in case Sarah should survive Matthew, and there be living issue at his decease, then and so long as the said children lived, the Trust was to pay or to authorize Sarah to receive out of the rents and profits from the said lands an annual annuity rent charge of £70, in lieu of the said annuity of £100, during her natural life. Sarah's annual annuity, whichever it turned out to be, was to be paid half yearly on the first of November and the first of May by equal portions without deductions. The first payment was to be made on such of the said days which shall first happen next after the decease of Matthew Hinds, with a power for Sarah and her assigns to distrain (seize for payment of the debt); and in case there should be an eldest son and one or more other child or children of Matthew Hinds on the body of Sarah Gerrard to be begotten, or in case there should not be any son of the intended marriage and all their issue should be a daughter or daughters, then William Gerrard of Liscarton and Thomas Hinds, their executors, administrators and assigns, should by sale or mortgage during the said term of five hundred years, levy or borrow £1,000 for the portion or portions of the other child or children and pay or make over the said sum among the child or children other than an eldest or only son in such shares or proportions as Matthew Hinds by deed or by his last will should appoint.
