He appointed Andrew Bell of Creevy and Mark Kerr of Tokay Lodge his trustees, and named his three sons, Andrew Bell Booth, Reverend Richard Bell Booth, George Thomas Bell Booth as his executors.

The Registry's copy of Robert's will was prepared without paragraphs and with little punctuation, so we have taken the liberty of separating the thoughts where we thought appropriate for ease of reading. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:

In the name of God Amen, I Robert Bell Booth of Drumcarban in the County of Cavan, Esquire, being of sound and disposing mind, memory and understanding, do make, publish and declare this my last Will and Testament, revoking all former wills and testimonies in writing or otherwise. Imploring the Almighty through the merits and blood of Christ my Savior and Redeemer to receive my Soul into the Eternal Bliss and Glory, I direct my remains to be buried in my family burial ground in the Churchyard of Ballimaun in decent and becoming manner, trusting that my beloved sons, my executors, will conduct and commit my body to the earth. And as to such property as I am possessed of, I dispose of as follows:

I do hereby will, devise and bequeath all my real and freehold estates of and in the towns and lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, Corlislea, Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit, situate in the county of Cavan, and the lands of Mullaghmeen, situate in Westmeath, unto Andrew Bell of Creevy in the county of Longford and Mark Kerr of Tokay Lodge in the county of Dublin, Esquire, as trustees, and to the survivors of them, and to the heirs and assigns of such survivors, upon the trusts, and to and for the several uses, interests and purposes hereinafter expressed and declared, for and concerning the same, and to no other use, interest or purpose whatsoever.

The elder of such sons to always be preferred to the younger. And in case the said Andrew shall marry with the approbation of my trustees, or the survivors of them, and not otherwise, I do hereby authorize them and him to provide a competent jointure for such wife, chargeable on said lands. And should he hereafter have lawful issue more than one, my will is that the said Andrew shall have power, and I do hereby invest him with full power, to charge and encumber said lands for younger children with any sum reasonable and under the direction of my said trustees, or the survivor of them, such sum for younger children or female child not to exceed £2,000 sterling. And in case the said Andrew shall not have issue male lawfully begotten, or that having issue male and that he or they, or any of them, shall not attain the age of 21 years, then and in case such event or events shall happen, my will is that my said trustees, and the survivor of them, and the heirs and assigns of such survivors, shall permit and suffer my second son, the Reverend Richard Bell Booth, in case he should survive the said Andrew or his issue male lawfully to be begotten, to have, hold and enjoy the said lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, and Mullaghmeen, subject however to such jointure for any wife the said Andrew may marry and provision for the younger children or female issue of said Andrew of such marriage, should there be any, as shall or may on such marriage be agreed on. And also subject to such chief rents as payable thereout. And in case the said Andrew and Richard should both happen to die without lawful issue male, or that having lawful issue male and that he or they should die and not attain the age of 21 years, then upon trust to permit and suffer my youngest son George Thomas Bell Booth and his issue male to have, hold and enjoy said lands of Bellsgrove, otherwise Aghacreevy, and Mullaghmeen as aforesaid.

The elder of such sons and the issue male always to be preferred to the younger. And in case the said Richard shall marry with the approbation of my said trustees, or the survivor of them, and not otherwise, I do hereby authorize them and him to provide a competent jointure for such wife chargeable on said lands of Corlislea. And should he thereafter have lawful issue more than one or if only one, a daughter, my will is that the said Richard shall have the power, and I do hereby invest him with the power, to charge and encumber said lands for younger children with any sum reasonable, and under the direction of my said trustees or the survivor of them. Such sum for younger children or female child not to exceed the sum of £2,000 sterling. And in case the said Richard shall not have issue male lawfully begotten or that having issue male and that he or they or any of them shall not attain the age of 21 years then, and in such event or events, my will is that my said trustees shall, or the survivor, or the heirs and assigns of such survivor, may permit and suffer my sons Andrew and George Thomas, jointly if they both live, or the survivor if either should die in the meantime, and the issue male of such survivor, to have, hold and enjoy the lands of Corlislea, subject however first to the said sum of £1,500 sterling herein before and after mentioned and for such jointure for any wife the said Richard may marry and provision for the female issue or younger children of said Richard, should there be any, as shall or may on such marriage be agreed upon.

The eldest of such sons and their issue male always to be preferred to the younger. And in case the said George Thomas shall marry with approbation of my trustees or the survivor of them, and not otherwise, I do hereby authorize him and them to provide a competent jointure for such wife chargeable on the lands and should he thereafter have lawful issue more than one, or if only one, a daughter, my will is that the said George Thomas shall have power, and I do hereby invest him with power, to charge and encumber said lands for younger children with any sum reasonable and under the direction of my said trustees or the survivor of them, such sum for younger children or child not to exceed the sum of £1,500. And in case the said George Thomas shall not have issue male lawfully begotten or that having issue male and that he or they shall die and not attain the age of 21 years, then and in case such event or events shall happen, my will is that my said trustees and the survivor of them and the heirs and assigns of such survivor shall permit and suffer my sons Andrew and Richard jointly, should they both live, or the survivor, and should either die in the lifetime of said George and the issue male of such survivor to have, hold and enjoy the said lands of Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit, subject however first to the said sum of £500 herein and after mentioned, and such jointure for any wife the said George Thomas may marry and provision for the female issue or younger children of said George Thomas, should there be any, as shall on such marriage be agreed upon. And also subject to the head rent payable out of said lands of Kevit.

And it is my will and desire, and I do empower each of my three sons, Andrew, Richard and George Thomas, respectively, when in possession of the premises to make leases and grant all or any part of the premises they are respectively entitled to under this my will for any term not exceeding one life or 31 years when in possession not in reversion without fraud or fine, and at the best improved yearly rent that can be had for same from solvent tenants, and so as every such lease contains covenants against waste and that the tenant do execute a counterpart thereof.

I have herein before mentioned the sum of £1,500 as charged on the lands of Corlislea and the sum of £500 as a charge on Drumcarban, Derrylane and Kevit. I do now declare and my will is that said respective sums do stand charged on said lands, respectively, and be payable with interest from my death as aforesaid, and that said sums together with the sum of £2,000 sterling shall be equally divided by my trustees between my two daughters, Letitia and Margaret Bell Booth, so that the fortune or portion of each shall be £1,000 with interest payable to each on their respective marriages. I do however declare it is my will that in the meantime they, or either of them, shall only receive the interest at the rate of 6 percent per annum by half-yearly payments on the first of every six months after my decease, and in case either or both of my said daughters should happen to die before marriage, or be married without the consent and approbation of my said trustees, or the survivor of them, or the heirs or assigns of such survivor, and also the consent and approbation of the said Reverend Richard Bell Booth then, and either of those events so happening, the fortune or portion and all arrears of interest thereon of such, or either or both so remaining unmarried, or offending by marriage against the consent and approbation aforesaid, shall go to, and be ratably divided by my said trustees, and go between my said three sons, Andrew, Richard and George Thomas, or the survivors or survivor of them, and share and share alike. And such of my daughters so offending herein shall only have and receive a sum of £50 sterling instead of £1,000 as aforesaid.

Robert Baker is indebted to me by bond and warrant in the sum of £96 or thereabouts together with interest, and the same is secured by a deed between him and James Smyth of Cavan, Esquire, whereby an insurance is to be kept up that on the death of said Robert Baker said debt with his other debts will be paid. I bequeath said debt and all advantage therefrom to Mary, second daughter of said Robert Baker.

I order and direct, and I do hereby will and bequeath, the furniture of and belonging to two of my best chambers be reserved and handed over to my daughters, Letitia and Margaret, and it is my wish they should reside with my son George after closing their education and until their marriage, respectively, on an understanding to make some renumeration.

I do hereby devise and bequeath the remainder of my household furniture at Drumcarban and the farming utensils or implements of husbandry to my son George Thomas Bell Booth.

I do hereby order and direct that my executors shall, with all convenient speed after my decease, ascertain and collect as well, the debts due to me as those due by me. And for that purpose, immediately after my decease, to sell, dispose of or value my goods, chattels and personal property not herein before bequeathed or disposed of and, after payment of my debts, funeral expenses and £5 each to Jane McCabe and James Quin, should they be in my service at my decease, that the residue of such personal property and all other property not herein disposed of, be equally divided, share and share alike, between by beloved, dutiful and much respected children, Mary, wife of Robert Baker, Andrew, Richard, George Thomas, Jane Amelia, wife of John Carmichael, Letitia and Margaret Bell Booth and that same be paid them each, respectively, notwithstanding their coverture.

I do now nominate, constitute and appoint my sons Andrew, Richard and George Thomas Bell Booth executors of this my last will and testament and with the affection of a fond parent, I consign them to act in all things under this my will and more especially in forming any connection by marriage by, with, and under the consent and approbation of my good and faith worthy trustees who are uncles to each of them, respectively.

There is a bond debt due to me by Arthur Moneypenny, Esquire, amounting to £50 with interest. I hereby bequeath this sum to Mr. Moneypenny and I direct my executors to acquit and release the last-mentioned debt.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my name and seal this 27th day of January 1825.                    Signed… Robert B. Booth


The will was signed in the presence of three witnesses, William Carmichael, William Harris and Andrew Carmichael.

A copy transcribed from a copy of the original Will and Testament of Robert Bell Booth, Esquire, was taken by the Reverend Richard Bell Booth and compared in the presence of Andrew Bell Booth of Creevy who found it to be correct, signing his name as Andrew B. Booth, in agreement, on 31 December 1830 at Drumcarban.3
Relationship Note*His daughter Elizabeth was identified as the youngest daughter of Robert Baker of Annagh, County Cavan, Ireland, by his wife, the daughter of Robert Bell Booth of Drumcarban.4,5

Lydia Balch1

Marriage*23 January 1723/24She married Israel Cowing on 23 January 1723/24 in Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
Research Notes*The information presented in the Hooper Genealogy may not be correct. What we have learned so far is that a daughter named Sarah Cowing was born in Scituate to a father named Israel Cowing on 21 Dec 1717 and that a Sarah Cowing, daughter of an Israel Cowing, died in Scituate on 5 Jan 1718. No other Sarahs were found in the Scituate records and, of course, the Sarah who died may not have been the same Sarah who was born the month before. Six years after the death of the daughter Sarah, Israel Cowing and Lydia Balch were married in Scituate in 1723/4. John Hooper did, in fact, marry a Sarah in Bridgewater in 1746. She was identified as Sarah Cowing in Mitchell's Bridgewater History in both the Hooper and Cowing sections and as Sarah Carver in the Bridgewater vital records under Hooper. Just to confuse things further, their marriage was not included in the Bridgewater vital records book under either Cowing or Carver.3,4,5,2,6,7

Some of the information from the website is presented here in acknowledgement that not all of the early Heatons to America were "our" Heatons, and specifically to remind us of the reasons for the confusion expressed by our Heaton family researchers over the years as they tried to distinguish between the Lincolnshire John Heaton and the Yorkshire John Heaton, the two John Heatons of Loudon County, Virginia.
