I've enjoyed the information about landowners and would appreciate some
insight about one of my relatives who emigrated from Ireland to America in
1763 at the age of 24. After reading the posts, it appears that he may be a
second generation owner and that's why his will is written to ensure that the
next generation assumes "ownership". It also probably explains why he was a
landowner at the age of 24.
The following is a quote from his will. Any further thoughts or insights?
The eleventh clause in his will was: "My estate or house and garden in
Taberwyne street in Glenarm in the County of Antrim, Ireland, adjoining to
the house formerly possessed by George Eaton, I give and bequeath to my
eldest son Robert if he shall go there for it, if not then to my second son
William if he shall go there for it, and in his default to my youngest son
John on the same terms."
Love this group... thanks for the information you share,
