Thanks Mark,

This is brilliant!
 You have given me some very valuable information.
If I come across anything on my search I think would be useful to yourself I will pass it on.


Where did you find all this by the way?
As you may have gathered I am pretty new to this so any tips would be very welcome

Thanks again
Ian

I think I have found my g-g-grandfather's will details on the PRO site...

Joseph Hill   
    
Date Of Death:    06/05/1914   
Date Of Grant:    05/08/1914   
Effects of 823 16s. 10d.
   
The abstract reads:

"Probate of the Will of Joseph Hill late of Carnlougherin County Antrim Farmer who died 6 May 1914 granted at Belfast to John Law Farmer"

What does this mean though - did all his items go to this 'John Law' or was he just an executor? Joseph Hill married Harriet Collins, her sister Ruth married John Law - I believe this is the connection anyway.

Id be interested to hear from you.

My own family are from Carnlougherin and Ballynalargy including the Collins, Robinson and Smyth families.

From my Great x 3 Grandparents marriage certificate a witness was a Joseph Hill.
