I have transcribed a portion of this will from a copy in the deed books in Dublin. It is of interest because of the names highlighted in the text. Since I can't at this time reliably locate any of these people in our family tree (although family lore would have it that the highlighted names do belong), I have waited to undertake footnoting until I can identify them.
