DONNELLAN WILLS

--This newly designed section on Wills has placed them in date order. The DVs are
--Donelan, Donnellan, Donnellon, Donelen, Donellan, Donelane and Donnelan. It is
--pretty obvious from a study of the Wills themselves that these are all of the same
--extended family. Where there are [], I have added my own comments. Any
--discrepancy in dates is between the date the Will was written, the date of death
--and the date the Will was proven. We now have between 35-40 of the Wills under
investigation.

-----interested in it. He spelled his name DONNELLAN and was living in Halfmoon
-----Street, Parish of St. George, Hanover Sq., Co. of Middlesex, England at the
-----time the Will was written. It contains many revealing facts about the Donnellan
-----family of that time ( 1768). They are:
-----1. He was from Cloghan, Co. Roscommon and requests burial there near his
-----father. He also directs his trustees to spend f 100 to erect a monument and
-----repair the church in Tassara (Tisrara) according to the directives of his Uncle
-----William Donnellan ( Rector of Naas). NOTE: The Donnellan history in
-----Tisrara will be covered in another section.
-----2. He has no descendants, nor does his brother John Ormsby Donnellan or
-----his sister Frances Donnellan. Although Frances is taken care of, he is much
-----concerned over the continuance of the Donnellan lineage at least in his
-----bloodline from the Archbishop to Sir James to Baron Nehemiah, etc.
-----3. As alternative heirs, he names his Uncles Rev. William, James, Nehemiah
-----on condition that the heir is legal (ligitimate)and male. If the Uncles do not
-----meet these conditions, the Estate goes to his cousin, Wm Rochford, son of his
-----Uncle Judge Rochford under condition that the heir is ligitimate, male and
-----ASSUMES the Donnellan surname. There is much more interesting material
-----but please request a copy to learn more.
