John Flynn1,2

Father*Edward Flynn2 d. b 5 Feb 1883
Birth*John Flynn was born in County Roscommon, Ireland.2
Marriage*5 February 1883He married Kate McDermott of Carrowduff, daughter of Michael McDermott, on 5 February 1883 in the Roman Catholic Chapel of Ballynaheglish, County Roscommon. John was full age, a bachelor and a farmer, and Kate was also full age and a spinster. Signing as witnesses to their marriage were William Crofton and Kate's sister Anne McDermott.1,2
(Son-in-Law) Probate10 August 1895The will of his father-in-law, Michael McDermott, named his deceased brother, Edward McDermott, his son, Andrew McDermott, his six surviving daughters, Margaret McDermott, Marcella Gordon, Anne McDermott, Kate Flynn, Winifred McDermott and Eliza Rorke, and three of his sons-in-law, John Flynn, Edward McDermott and Mark P. McDermott, and was proved on 10 August 1895. John and another son-in-law, Edward McDermott, and a daughter, Margaret McDermott, were named executives and trustees. Michael's wife or wives had predeceased him and we believe his eldest daughter, Mary (McDermott) Hughes, had also died before he wrote his will because she was not mentioned. Additionally, his home in Carrowduff, County Roscommon, during his lifetime and possibly longer, was most often spelled "Carraduff" by those who wrote it. It is now spelled "Carrowduff". As a result of our research, we've included it spelled both ways in our report of this County Roscommon McDermott family.

The District Registry's copy of Michael'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 not modified any spelling that we are aware of, and made only minor punctuation adjustments. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:


I, Michael McDermott of Carraduff in the county of Roscommon, hereby revoke all former wills and testamentary dispositions made by me and declare this to be my last will and testament. I appoint my sons-in-law, John Flynn and Edward McDermott and my daughter Margaret McDermott (hereinafter called “my Trustees”) to be the Executors and Trustees of this my will.

I will and direct that all my farming stock of horses, cattle and sheep shall be sold as soon after my death as to my Trustees shall think fit. I direct that my funeral and testamentary expenses and debts, including all arrears of rent due by me out of my farms up to the last gale day next before my decease, shall be paid there out.

I bequeath to my daughter Marcella Gordon the sum of two hundred pounds to be paid to her by my Trustees in installments of fifty pounds each year, the first of such installments to be payable twelve months after my decease and I hereby declare that payments heretofore made by me to her, or for her benefit, at her request at various times amounting to about the sum of £600 were paid by me on account of, and in discharge of, her share of the residue of the estate and effects of my deceased brother Edward McDermott under his will, and her said share amounting to the sum of five hundred pounds of said residue has been, by said payments, paid off and satisfied.

I devise and bequeath to my daughter Margaret McDermott all my estate and interest in my farms and lands of Carraduff and Carrane Bog in the Barony of Ballymoe and Carrowrough in the Barony of Castlerea and that part of the lands of Highlake held by me under Lord De Freyne at the yearly rent of £24.15.0 and now herded by Peter Finan, all in the County of Roscommon together with the furniture and household effects and implements of husbandry in at or about my residence at Carraduff, and my car, mare and harness, and I also bequeath her the sum of five hundred pounds (£500) and I declare this bequest to be in discharge and satisfaction of her share of the residue of the estate and effects of my said deceased brother Edward under his will.

I devise and bequeath to my daughter Anne McDermott wife of Edward McDermott all my interest in that other part of the lands of Highlake in the County of Roscommon and held under Lord De Freyne at the yearly rent of £43.15.4 and now herded by the family of the late John Farrell. I also devise and bequeath to said Anne McDermott wife of Edward McDermott all my interest in the farm and lands of Kinitty in Parish of Kilbride and County of Roscommon and the sum of two hundred pounds (£200) and I declare this to be in satisfaction of whatever balance is still due her of her share of the residue of the estate and effects of my deceased brother Edward under his will having already paid her the sum of £400 (four hundred pounds).

I bequeath to my daughter Kate Flynn the sum of one hundred pounds (£100) and I declare that the sum of £1200 paid her on her marriage included and was in satisfaction of the residue of the estate and effects of my deceased brother Edward McDermott.

I bequeath to my trustees for my daughter Winifred McDermott, wife of Mark P. McDermott, the sum of one hundred pounds (£100) to be invested by my said Trustees for her benefit, or to be paid to her, or for her use in such way as they think fit, and I declare that her share of the residue of the estate and effects of my deceased brother Edward under his will was paid off and satisfied by the sum of one thousand pounds paid to her by me on her marriage.

I bequeath to my daughter Eliza Rorke the sum of five hundred pounds (£500) which I declare to be in satisfaction of her share of the residue of the estate and effects of my deceased brother Edward under his will.

I devise and bequeath all my house property in the town of Roscommon and interest in houses and premises in said town to my Trustees upon Trust that my said Trustees shall receive the rents, issues and profits thereof and shall apportion and pay same after payment there out of all incidental expenses and outgoings amongst all my children in equal shares.

All the rest, residue and remainder of my property, means and effects of every nature and kind, I devise and bequeath to my Trustees in Trust for all my said daughters and my son Andrew McDermott in equal shares, and I hereby direct and it is my will that any of my said daughters who shall make any claim hereafter against the estate and effects of my said brother Edward or any part thereof over and above the sum mentioned and hereinbefore bequeathed shall forfeit and be deprived of every benefit, devise and bequest under this my will.

I will that the several money bequests hereinbefore mentioned, namely £200 to Marcella Gordon, £500 to Margaret McDermott, £200 to Anne McDermott, £100 to Kate Flynn , £100 to Anne McDermott, and £500 to Eliza Rorke shall be paid out of proceeds of the farm stock first above directed and out of such money as shall be to my credit in Bank or elsewhere at my decease, and that should such proceeds of farm stock or money elsewhere to my credit be not sufficient to pay such money legacies or bequests that same shall be paid up in full out of the rents and profits of the house property in Roscommon hereinbefore left to my Trustees, each legatee to have annually a share of the rents proportionate to the amount of her bequest.

I bequeath to the Parish Priest of my parish the sum of ten pounds to have masses said for the repose of my Soul and for the Soul of my brother Edward and the other deceased members of my family, such sum to be free of legacy duty and to be paid in priority to the other bequests herein, out of the proceeds of the farm stock or money in Bank.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal to this my will this Thirteenth day of April 1894 (four)…. and the will was signed by Michael McDermott

Signing as witnesses were John M. Whelan, Solicitor, of Roscommon, and Patt Conlon of Rathnalulleagh.1

(Lands Committee) Estate and Land19 February 1799When probate was reopened on the estate of Ephraim Leach on 19 February 1799 in Plymouth County before Judge Joshua Thomas, the judge issued a warrant to Daniel Tolman, Ephraim Fobes and Daniel Fobes, empowering and directing them to take a view of the homestead farm that Ephraim, late of Bridgewater, had died seized of and to divide it into four equal parts or shares, first giving timely notice to all persons interested to be present if they saw cause. The men were further directed to assign and set off one share to the heirs of Ephraim's deceased sister Mehitable Leach, one share to the heirs of Ephraim's deceased sister Mercy Peterson, one share to the heirs of Ephraim's brother David Leach, also deceased, and one share to Ephraim’s sister Abigail (Leach) Keith, the wife of Jacob Keith, all in accordance with the directions in Ephraim's 1767 will. The committee was instructed by the judge to divide the shares by metes and bounds, considering quantity and quality, so that the heirs may hold their shares separately, forever. The judge ordered the men to make a return of the warrant with their doings and signatures, under oath, as soon as conveniently possible.1,2
(Lands Committee) Estate and Land19 October 1802The warrant to divide and distribute the homestead farm of the deceased Ephraim Leach was returned by Daniel Tolman, Ephraim Fobes and Daniel Fobes to the Honorable Joshua Thomas in Plymouth County on 19 October 1802. The committee's written report outlined the process they used, the details of each share, and how they were distributed among the recipients. The committee completed their return of the warrant by stating to the court that they had taken a view of the homestead that Ephraim Leach, late of Bridgewater, died seized of and, pursuant to the warrant and as directed by Judge Joshua Thomas, had divided the homestead agreeably and assigned and set off to the heirs of the several persons mentioned, their respective heirs' shares, to be held separately. The document was filed with the court on 6 April 1805.1,2

(Lands Committee) Land Records22 December 1702Josiah Edson, Samuel Allen Sr. and Edward Fobes served on a committee to resolve the bounds between the houses of John Bolton in Bridgewater and his neighbor Israel Alger. On 22 December 1702, the committee measured the land by the box rule measure and set up bounds between the neighbors. At the northeasterly end was a black oak marked on four sides, and about in the middle of the length, a stake and stones, and at the southwesterly end, near the river, a stake and stones. Israel Alger had already cleared about one acre of swamp woods that was going to fall within John Bolton's land, so the committee agreed that Israel Alger should have the grass on it for four years more from the above date.3
