Wright, John

In the name of God, amen, I, John Wright, late of Tullyremond but now of Caledon, County of Tyrone, and Parish of Aughaloo, being weak in body but of sound mind and memory, do hereby make my last Will and Testament. First, that my body be intered in a decent burial manner, the expenses to be paid out of my chattel property.

Second, I bequeath to my son Andrew Wright all that Farm of land houses and hereditaments with all crop horned caste horses, farming implements, household furniture with whatever other articles there may be on said farm in the townland of Tullyremond, out of which he is to pay to my daughter Matilda Kelly the sum of five pounds sterling, to buy for her a dress after my decease, she having got her fortune heretofore paid in cash at her wedding to Robert Kelly.

Third, I bequeath to my wife and daughter Emily all the household furniture, with everything it may now contain in the house, in which I now live, in the town of Caledon.

Now for the purpose of carrying this Will into effect, I appoint Francis McKeown of Mullintor and David Wright of Tullyremond as my whole and sole executors. Now I hereby make all other Wills that may have been made by me or said to be made, void and of no effect, and I do also constitute this to be my last Will and Testament.

Signed , Sealed published and declared by the said testator in the presence, and in the presence of each other, hereunto subscribed our names as Witnesses this 6th day of August 1885 (Five)
