John Forde1

Relationship Note*John and Maria Forde are believed to have been siblings.2,3
Residence*John Forde lived in Rockmount, County Roscommon, Ireland.1
(Brother-in-Law) Will26 January 1880John was appointed a Joint Trustee and Executor in the will of Thady Rorke of Camogue, County Roscommon, dated 26 January 1880. The will named Thady's wife Maria, his sons John Joseph, Timothy, Michael, Patrick, James and Joseph, and his granddaughter, "Eleanor" Farmer of Newtown, as her name was written in the District Registry's copy of the will. Her name was actually Ellen Mary Farmer. He named his wife's brother John Forde of Rockmount, Croghan, his brother Owen Rorke of Cloonyquin, and his son-in-law Owen Farmer of Newtown, as his Joint Trustees and Executors.

Finding this will was exciting and we are very grateful to Patrick Hume, a Thady Rorke descendant, for his expertise in reading and transcribing our initial copy. His knowledge of this early Rorke family, and also of Ireland generally, has been especially helpful to us. So, thank you, Patrick!

The District Registry's copy of Thady's will was prepared without paragraphs, so we have taken the liberty of separating the thoughts where we thought appropriate for ease of reading. We have also modified some place names to their current spellings, but have not modified any other spellings that we are aware of, and we've made only minor punctuation adjustments. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:

In the Name of God Amen.

I Thady Rorke of Camogue do make this my last Will and Testament, Revoking all others that "has" been made by me.

I will to my son John Joseph Rorke the sum of Five pounds sterling.

I will to my son Timothy Rorke the sum of One Hundred pounds sterling together with the lands of Farranawillin which I hold under lease.

I will to my son Michael Rorke the sum of Two Hundred pounds sterling together with the Farm of Cloonglasny beg.

I will my son Patrick Rorke the sum of Three Hundred pounds sterling together with the Farm of Lettreen.

Note: in the next sentence of the will, the name “John” was crossed out, so the bequest was intended to read: “I will to my son Joseph Rorke the sum of Three Hundred pounds sterling.”

The remaining portion of all my assets in monies, live stock and crops together with a Policy of Insurance on my own life for five hundred and odd pounds on the Alliance Office Castlerea, per Receipts and Account in my Cash Book, I will to my son James Rorke after paying the aforesaid bequests, Rents, Taxes, Funeral expenses and all other just debts due by me together with Ten pounds which I will to my granddaughter Eleanor(sic) Farmer of Newtown and Five pounds to my respected Parish Priest and Curate for Masses to be offered up for the eternal repose of my poor soul.

I will and direct that my wife Maria Rorke shall get the Annual allowance of Fifteen pounds sterling, for her support and maintenance during her natural life, together with the Room she now sleeps in, to be charged on the lands of Camogue.

It is my will and wish that none of my household furniture or farming implements be sold by Auction, but kept here for the use and benefit of this place.

But it is my will that all my other assets and effects shall be Auctioned and disposed of at a Suitable Season of the year. The monies to be secured and converted to the best purpose for each member of my family, according to the forgoing will, by my Trustees and Executors.

I give and devise to John Forde of Rockmount, Croghan, Owen Rorke of Cloonyquin and Owen Farmer of Newtown, the house, offices and lands of Camogue, leased and released as I now hold them, in trust for my son James Rorke until he reaches the age of twenty-five years, when I will that he then get into legal possession, provided he is in sound health and always guided by my Executors. Should he die before he reaches that age, I will and devise the aforesaid house, offices and lands of Camogue to my son Patrick Rorke, and should neither of them survive the age of twenty-five years, I will and devise the aforesaid house, offices and lands of Camogue to my son Joseph Rorke.

I give and devise to my Trustees and Executors the lands of Mullygollan and Toneragh, if they think it prudent to hold them, in trust for maintenance, clothing and education of Patrick Rorke, James Rorke and Joseph Rorke.

I also will that the profit made out of the lands of Camogue, until my son James attain the age of Twenty-Five years, shall also go to the support, clothing and education of the aforesaid Patrick, James and Joseph Rorke. The balance of profit, if any, to be divided share and share alike on them.

I hope my good friends through life, Christopher French Esq., Arthur St. George French Esq., both of Cloonyquin, and Patrick Taaffe Esq. of Foxborough, will never see an injustice done to any of my family.

I hereby appoint John Forde of Rockmount, Owen Rorke of Cloonyquin, and Owen Farmer of Newtown as Joint Trustees and Executors of this, my Last Will and Testament.

There is a sum of one hundred pounds sterling due me by George S. O’Connor Esq. and Henry Smyth Esq. both now of Hollywell, to be allowed out of last year’s rent of Mullygollan and Toneragh. (per agreement on Stamped paper)
