And also to Richard he gave his lands of Shane in County Monaghan. To his wife Mary he gave one of his best horses, the furniture of her room and other furniture she may wish.

To his natural and illegitimate son John Bell, he bequeathed £40 to be paid him by his, the testator's son George. He bequeathed £5 to the poor of the parish of Anna, also to be paid by his son George.

Should his son Richard die unmarried and without issue, the lands of Killynure, the customs of Redhills aforesaid and also the lands of Altreagh shall revert to his son George, and if George dies unmarried and without issue, the said lands of Gortaquill, Carrigan, Clonumphry, "Sallcony", Killybandrick and Finternagh to his son Richard.
