The District Registry's copy of Edward's will was prepared without paragraphs or commas, 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. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:

I appoint my said brother Michael and Martin McDonnell of Roscommon, merchant, Trustees and Executors of this my Will.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand this fifteenth day of June in the year of our Lord 1876… and the Will was signed by Edward McDermott

Signing as witnesses were Farrell McDonnell, Solicitor, Roscommon, and James A. Conroy, Roscommon.2
Marriage*13 February 1888She married Mark P. McDermott of Macnadille, son of Terence McDermott, on 13 February 1888 in the Roman Catholic Chapel of Ballynaheglish, County Roscommon. Mark was 27 years of age, a bachelor and farmer, and Winifred was 21 years of age and a spinster. Signing as witnesses to their marriage were John McDermott and Maggie McDermott.1
Occupation*Mark was a gentleman farmer in Macnadille, County Roscommon.3
(Daughter) Probate10 August 1895Her father's will, which 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, was proved on 10 August 1895. Her father's wife or wives had predeceased him so we haven't identified the mother or mothers of any of the seven children named in his will, 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 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.

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.4
