Curious, would the profession, landlord, be used in the case of someone on a short stay i.e, renting for a visit/holiday?

"Landlord" isn't right.  As mentioned previously, rentier translates as "annuitant" or "person of private means/person of independent means"

Thank you for the clarification re landlord, that makes more sense. I'd read it but accidentally associated it with the witness. Duh....

Thank you for the probates, Kloumann! I had only seen the probate indexes. Do you have to manually scroll through the associated images? Are they always alphabetical? I'm not having much luck. Any tricks you can suggest?

I am looking for Emily's father, William Moyer's will which I can't seem to find. He died 25 Nov 1860 in Rathmines, Dublin. I've done a quick look through the images 1860-1865 without any success.

Thanks, J

This 28th day of March in the year 1864 at 11 in the morning was presented to me the body of an infant without life, of female sex, born from her mother the 25th of this month at 4 in the morning,
I'm not sure why there would be a difference in dates from the 25th to the 28th if the infant was born without life. But I suppose the 28th was when the death was registered or buried, not of the death itself.
I read it that the body was presented without life on the 28th, having been born on the 25th - ie lived 2 - 3 days.

"Landlord" isn't right.  As mentioned previously, rentier translates as "annuitant" or "person of private means/person of independent means"

His occupation was "Gentleman" in the probate register for his wife.(Reply #7) his designation was "Esquire". It seems like he wasn't working for a living at the time of his wife's death.
Ancestors of mine in England, father & son, gave their occupations as "gentleman" in 1830s. Father had retired from a successful business; he and some of his 10 adult children were living on the profits while 4 elder sons were running their own businesses. By 1841 the "gentleman" youngest son was a shopkeeper and his brothers had also come down in the world due to financial and business failures.
