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.

John Smith1

Marriage*12 November 1798He married, as her second husband, Jane Vipont, widow of William Gerrard of Liscartan, daughter of Charles Vipont and Mary Stiles, on 12 November 1798 at St. Ann's, Dublin. They appear to have planned to marry originally four years earlier in 1794 when they received their first marriage licence and, for reasons not yet determined, didn't marry until 1798.2,1,3,4
(Trustee) Deed Memorial10 November 1806A memorial deed of appointment dated 10 November 1806 was made between John Smith of Kells in the county of Meath, Esq. and Jane Smith otherwise Gerrard his wife of the first part, and Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan in the county of Meath Esq. of the other part.

Reciting that Thomas Gerrard was guardian to his younger brothers and sisters, Mary Anne Gerrard, William Edward Gerrard, Charles Gerrard and Jane Gerrard;

and also reciting that by indenture of lease bearing date 13 November 1778 made between William Waller Esq. of Allenstown, County Meath of the one part and the children's grandfather, Thomas Gerrard of Martry, County Meath of the other part, both now deceased, the said William Waller for the considerations therein mentioned demised unto the said Thomas Gerrard of Martry all that part of the lands of Balrathboyne, otherwise Boon, then in the occupancy of the said Thomas Gerrard of Martry, containing 181 acres, 2 roods and 8 perches. To hold to the said Thomas Gerrard, his executors, administrators and assigns from the first of November (just past) for the term of 21 years at the yearly rent of £118, 19s, 4p in which said lease was contained a covenant for renewal on the part of the said William Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns to the said Thomas Gerrard, his heirs, administrators and assigns as often as he, the said William Waller should review the same with the Archdeacon of Meath for such further term as the said William Waller, his executors, administrators should obtain a lease of the same and he the said Thomas Gerrard, his executors, administrators or assigns pay one-third part of the fines which should be paid by the said William Waller, his executors or administrators in obtaining such renewal.

And also reciting that Robert Waller, only son of the said William Waller, then deceased, renewed said lease with the Archdeacon of Meath and did in pursuance of the said lease by indenture bearing date 20 February 1797 demise unto the said Jane Smith otherwise Gerrard, who was described in the deed as the "personal representative of the said Thomas Gerrard (of Martry) and of William Gerrard his son", the said and therein before mentioned lands and premises at the said renewed yearly rent and subject to all the clauses and covenants in the original lease mentioned.

It should be noted here that, although Jane Smith otherwise Gerrard was described in the deed as only the personal representative of Thomas Gerrard and his son William, Jane was actually the widow of William Gerrard of Liscartan and daughter-in-law of Thomas Gerrard of Martry and the mother of Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan of the "other part" of this deed.

The deed also recited that Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan on 23 July 1803 arrived at age, and on 25 July 1804 took letters of guardianship to his younger, minor brothers and sisters.

And reciting that Robert Waller, having then lately renewed his lease with the Reverend Thomas Lucy, Archdeacon of Meath, had agreed to execute a renewal of the said lease to the person lawfully entitled to receive it;

and also reciting that in order to indemnify the said Robert Waller from all disputes as to the person legally authorized to receive said rent, it was thought necessary that the said John and Jane Smith should assign all their right and title to a renewal of the lease from Robert Waller to Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan, Jane's son and heir of his father William, to which John and Jane Smith did agree.

And witness that John Smith and Jane Smith for the considerations therein mentioned did assign unto Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan all their interest in or to any renewal of the said lands and premises and the covenants of the deed of 1778 from William Waller, deceased, to Thomas Gerrard of Martry, deceased;

And also witness that the deed was executed by Thomas Gerrard of Liscartan in trust for the sole benefit of his brothers and sisters, Sophia Webb otherwise Gerrard, Mary Anne Gerrard, William Edward Gerrard, Charles Gerrard and Jane Gerrard, and for no other use, trust or purpose whatsoever.

The deed of assignment was executed by all parties mentioned and duly signed and sealed by John and Jane Smith and witnessed by James Webb of Kells and Jane's sister Anne Vipont of Kells in the county of Meath on 15 November 1806. It was registered a few months later on 8 June 1807.1
