TitleWills
DescriptionThis series has been divided into 4 sub-series according to document type, originals, probates, letters of administration and copy wills. There are 21 wills in all, dating from 1664-1887 and relating to five different families. Ormsby (14), Ruttledges (4), Elwood (1), O'Malley (1) and Semple (1). Two wills (LE40/6/132 and LE40/6/139) express a wish to be buried in the grabeyard at Sligna. This must have been an old name for the area on which Killegan church is built (see LE40/87) which is the lease from Thomas Ormsby of an acre for the churchyard at Sligne. In his will Anthony Ormsby of Ballinamore wished to be buried in the grabeyard at Sligna (see LE40/6/132) and he is buried at Killedan (see "Memorials of the Dead in Ireland", vol 4, p 107.
