Transcribed from the images available on the PRONI website. The original wills up to 1904 for Dublin Registry and up to 1899 for the District registries were destroyed in 1922 during the fire at the Public Record Office in Dublin. Fortunately copies had been made in the District Registries and these survived. The images that are available on the PRONI website are from these copies. There is the occasional discrepancy in spelling and names. My transcriptions are therefore transcriptions of transcriptions! Where I am unsure I have indicated this with a question mark.
