In Reply to: John McVetty/McVeety of Clones parish, Co. Monaghan by Annie Crenshaw of 886

The Crossle manuscript booklets at the National Archives in Dublin include an interesting record of "John McVittie of Aughalisabea" in 1704.

Clogher Will:

John McVittie of Aughalisabea, parish Clownish, county Monaghan. To my dearly beloved wife Janett the sum of 3 pounds 6/8 pence per annum for her life out of the lands of Aughalisabea and Derilea [Derrylea] it being the full moiety of said lands as let formerly.

As to my personal estate, a piece of gold, one good cow, a bed and bedding of clothes, one room and milk of two cows to my said wife Janett during her abode on said lands of Aughalisabea.

To my well beloved son Simon McVittie whom I appoint sole executor all my lands together with the rest of my goods and chattels whatsoever.

In witness whereof 15 February 1704 [-5]. John McVittie

Witnesses: Thomas Nixon
George Little
Thomas Boll

On 27 March 1705 - Thomas Nixon, George Little and Thomas Boll swear as to witnessing before Will: Leslie, Surrogate.

Indorsed: John McVitty's will 1704 Aghalisbea, Tydavnet [Tedavnet]
By the time of the Tithe Applotments and Griffith's Valuation, the only McVitty/McVetty at Aghalissabeagh was "Mr. Henry McVittie" (Tithes) who was also probably "Henry McVeety" (Griffith's), holding property at Dernahamsha as well as Aghalissabeagh.

Any connections and additional information on this family and related families would be appreciated.
