William Stevenson, jun., of Edinburgh

(biographical sketch pending)


  • 1747-01-22: The last will and testament  [1] of Capt. James Stevenson of Stewartstown, grandfather to William, was proved. By his will, Capt. James bequeathed to William the lands and tenements in the town of Lurgan, which he purchased from John Towlerton in 1738, [2] and which were, in 1747, in the possession of Phelemy McCartney and Patrick Nelson (or Wilson), and a meadow in Knockshane, or Knocknashane, townland. Capt. Stevenson stipulated further that, if William died before he came of age or married without his father's consent, then this legacy would go to his (Capt. Stevenson's) grandson, James; also, that William would pay to each of his four sisters the sum of £50.

[3]
    ☛ One of the witnesses to this deed was James Stevenson of Stewartstown, William's elder brother.
