George Thompson1

Deed Memorial*May 1813A memorial of an indented deed of conveyance dated May 1813 was made between Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard, daughters and only children and co-heiresses of John Gerrard late of Curristown, County Westmeath, spinsters, of the one part, the Reverend Mungo Henry Waller of Allenstown in the county of Meath, clerk, executor of Robert Waller, late of Allenstown aforesaid, deceased, of the second part, and George Thompson of Clonskeagh Castle in the county of Dublin, Esq. of the third part.

Ireland’s memorial deeds are handwritten, and the microfilmed copies are often difficult to read. Additionally, we are uncertain, in some instances, that we have identified the correct townland. In earlier times, how the name of a townland was spelled depended upon how the initial scribe heard the name pronounced, and then how future scribes interpreted what was written. As a result, the names and spellings of many Irish townlands were spelled differently from deed to deed, book to book and year to year.

Attempts to standardize the spelling of Ireland’s townlands began around the turn of the 20th century. A townland’s Barony did not always remain constant, either. Changes were made as populations grew. Our own transcription that follows attempts to identify the correct townlands mentioned in the deed and spell them in the current (2020) standard form. Our placement of quotation marks around a townland’s name means we remain uncertain about our selection of the correct townland, or have used the spelling as we saw it in the deed because we couldn’t find a good guess.

In the case of this specific 1813 deed, the microfilmed copy was fairly easy to read. One of the townlands, however, the townland we have decided might now be called “Kill”, was spelled five different ways in the seven times it was mentioned in the deed. Three times it was spelled “Kilballbragh”, and once each it was called “Kilballbrack”, “Kulballbrack”, “Kilbellbragh” and “Killbellrath”.

“Kill” was the townland we determined was a likely candidate to choose as our mystery townland for two reasons. Our first reason is that in Griffith’s Valuation of 1854, the townland of Kill is shown as contiguous to the townland of Calliaghstown, which is shown as contiguous to Rathmore, the other two townlands mentioned in this 1813 deed, and the second reason is that the Immediate Lessor of Kill in Griffith’s Valuation of 1854 was George Thompson, the name of the man to whom the lands were transferred by this 1813 deed. Our transcription follows, and we welcome suggestions and corrections:

Reciting that by indenture of 13 November 1764, Robert Rochfort Earl of Belvedere devised and set to Samuel Gerrard of Curristown all that part of the towns and lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill containing 508 acres more or less, situate, lying and being in the county of Westmeath. To hold to the said Samuel Gerrard, his heirs and assigns, from the 7th of November then last, for the lives of John Gerrard, Thomas Gerrard and Samuel Gerrard, sons of the said Samuel Gerrard, with a covenant for perpetual renewal on the full of each life at the yearly rent of £404 payable half yearly as therein mentioned.

And also reciting that by indenture bearing date the 2nd of March 1772 and made between the said Samuel Gerrard, then of Liscartan, of the first part, John Gerrard, eldest son and heir apparent of the said Samuel of the second part, and the Reverend John Wynne and Hannah (Wynne) Gerrard, his daughter, of the third part, that the said Samuel Gerrard, in consideration of a marriage then to be had between the said John Gerrard and the said Hannah Gerrard, and also in consideration of the marriage portion of the said Hannah Wynne, had assigned to the said John Gerrard as a provision for him, all that part of the towns and lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill with their appurtenances thereunto belonging. To hold unto the said John Gerrard, his heirs and assigns, for the lives of him, the said John Gerrard, Thomas Gerrard and Samuel Gerrard with the covenant for perpetual renewal as therein mentioned.

And reciting that the said John Gerrard, for the considerations therein mentioned, did devise the said lands and premises unto the said John Wynne, to hold to the said John Wynne, his executors, administrators or assigns, for the term of 99 years in trust to the intent and purpose that the said John Wynne, his executors, administrators or assigns should receive the rents and profits of the said lands and there such to pay the said Hannah Wynne one annuity or yearly sum of £100 during her life, and also reciting that the said John Gerrard, on or about the 24th of November1780, made and published his last will and testament and thereby devised unto his daughters, the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard, all his estate and interest in the said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill to be equally divided between them, share and share alike, with such benefit of survivorship as therein mentioned.

And also reciting that by indented deed bearing date the 23rd of December 1780 the said John Gerrard did assign and make over unto Robert Waller of Allenstown in the county of Meath the said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill in trust to permit and suffer, after payments of the rent and of the annuity of £100 to the said Hannah Gerrard, the issue male and female of the said John Gerrard on the body of the said Hannah Wynne to receive the rents, issues and profits of said lands as co-partners and tenants in common, share and share alike, and to the heirs of their respective bodies.

And also reciting that the said Robert Waller was then dead and that the said Mungo Henry Waller was his executor and personal representative.

And also reciting that by indenture dated the 4th of June 1800 the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard renewed the lease of the said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill with the Honorable William Leeson in whom the estate and interest of the said Robert, Earl of Belvedere became legally vested by adding the life of the said Maria Gerrard to the said term in the removal of the said John Gerrard, deceased, and reciting that the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard were all unmarried and that they attained their ages of 21 years, and that they being desirous of disposing of said lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill had agreed to sell and convey to the said George Thompson for the considerations therein after mentioned.

The deed witnessed that the said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard, for and in consideration of the sum of £2,000 to them in hand paid at or before the perfection of the said deed, and also in consideration of 5 shillings to the said Mungo H. Waller in hand paid, they, and each of them, did grant, bargain, sell, assign, transfer and make over to the said George Thompson, in his actual possession by virtue of a bargain to him made, and to his heirs and assigns, all that and those the said parts of the said towns and lands of Rathmore, Calliaghstown and Kill, situate in the county of Westmeath with all and singular the rights, members and appurtenances thereto belonging or in anywise appertaining. To hold to the said George Thompson, his heirs and assigns, for and during the natural lives and life of the said Thomas Gerrard, Samuel Gerrard and Maria Gerrard, and the survivor of them, and for the lives of such other persons as shall forever be added thereto by virtue of the covenant for perpetual renewal in the original lease of said lands, contract subject, nevertheless, to the rents and covenants in the original lease mentioned.

The said Maria Gerrard, Hannah Gerrard and Elizabeth Gerrard did covenant that they had good right, full power, and lawful and absolute authority to make the said conveyance to the said George Thompson, and that they did not do, commit or suffer to be done any act, matter or thing to charge or encumber the said lands, and present but that the same was freely discharged from all encumbrances whatsoever except said annuity of £100 payable to the said Hannah Wynne as herein before mentioned, and of the said George Thompson, his heirs and assigns, paying the rent and performing the covenants in the original lease thereof contained, might peacefully and quietly hold and enjoy the said lands and premises.

The memorial was executed, signed and sealed by Maria, Hannah and Elizabeth Gerrard, and witnessed by Thomas Thompson and Michael Reilly. It was registered on 18 May 1813.1

Birth*1730Ann Thomson was born about 1730.2
Name VariationShe was also called Nannie.3
Marriage*before 28 March 1753She married Obadiah Britt, son of ______ Britt, about a year before 28 March 1753 in Goochland County, Virginia. They very likely married about a year before that date because, unfortunately, the marriage date reported for them in The Douglas Register is incorrect, and is actually the date of birth of the oldest of their children found in the birth and baptism section of the Register starting on page 150.1,4,5
(Wife) Will3 September 1795Her husband prepared his will dated 3 September 1795 in Albemarle County, Virginia, naming his wife, Ann Britt, his four sons, William Britt, John Britt, Obadiah Britt and Archelus Britt, and a deceased daughter, Elizabeth Bailey. His objective was to treat all of his children equally, and appears to have specifically named the five for reasons other than inheritance. His four other daughters were very possibly also living.

The land that he then lived on he loaned to his beloved wife Ann Britt, during her life, and after her decease directed it to be sold by his executors at proper credit, and the money arising therefrom to be equally divided among his children, and the children of his deceased daughter, Elizabeth Bailey, to have one child's part, and not go into the hands of their father, John Bailey. His will directed that all the rest of his estate, real and personal, be enjoyed by his wife at the discretion of his executors, and after her decease to be sold and divided among his children as above mentioned. He constituted and ordained his sons, William Britt, John Britt, Obadiah Britt and Archelus Britt, his son Obadiah's father-in-law, Micajah Wheeler and John Buster his executors.

The will was signed and sealed by Obadiah Britt in the presence of witnesses John Buster, Micajah Wheeler, Sr. and William Smith.6
