  1. Fildraw
  2. Charles jnr was the only surviving son born to Charles McYlrea snr & Margaret (als Kewley?)
  3. He married Mary Bell als Bridson c1736; five children Charles (1738-1741), John (1740), Robert (1742), William (1746), Thomas (1750)
  4. Mary died 1782; Charles jnr 1792. Son Charles died in infancy; no record of the fate of the other sons
  5. The fact that Charles had to extend the original £60 mortgage from 178 is a sure sign that he could not service the original loan. This extension really just postponed the inevitable
  6. There is much about the Malew Mylreas of the 1600s and early 1700s that does not hang together so extreme caution must be exercised
  7. For further insights into the Malew Mylreas, please refer to Mylreas in Ballaquaile and Fildraw
