The Milsops were from Breagh near Portadown in Armagh - Quakers. Isabella died young.

I know nothing about the origins of Sarah Mairs (Mayrs).

I'd say dathai is referring to the bequests to "Roman Catholic Clergy"

Byrne [Carthy], Keeffe/ Germaine, Butler/ McDermott, Giblin/ Lally, Dolan
Toole, Doran; Dowling, Grogan/ Reilly, Burke; Warren, Kidd [Lawless]/ Smith, Scally; Mangan, Rodgers/ Fahy, Calday; Staunton, Miller

If you click on the link dathai provided the original will is available to view and the people listed are named within the will
The Reverends are described as "Roman Catholic Clergy"

Which of itself does not mean Paul DAVIS was Catholic just he made bequests to Catholics
