Fourth I bequeath to Thomas Dinneen the other half of my plantation.
Fifth. I bequeath to Thomas Hyde all the property remaining belonging to me in this Harbour and do hereby appoint him to recover all debts due to me. Said Hide is to live in this house until such time as Bishop Fleming wish to dispossess him of it, Said Hide is to maintain Johanna Dineen during her life in the house Should it be Thomas Dinneen's wish to live in the house with Hyde he can do so otherwise he can live in the Cook Room.
John Lynch is to have the Cooper's shop during such time as it may answer him to teach school in, rent free.
Should Thomas Dinneen want for assistance during his life, a certain person is appointed to relieve him, or should he want the use of the horse to haul wood or manure Thomas Hyde is to let him have him, say a few days, or during such time as he may want him.
And I do hereby denominate, constitute, ordain and appoint John Manning as executor to this my last will & testament.
In witness whereof I have set my hand and seal at Baydeverds as aforesaid this 30th day of May in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty two.
Timothy Dineen (LS) In the presence of Thomas Neil. John his X mark Mangan.

|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor. |
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
