[4qd-bannvalley] The Will of Samuel Torrens of Cullycaple.

Hello, Here is the Will of Samuel Torrens of Cullycaple I got some time ago,

NOTE;- Some of the writing on this Will is a bit difficult to read, I am not
to sure what the word after Robert McCandless was, It could be a place name,
I thought it was handing, It could be London, It began with either a T or
and L, Just in case  someone working on the McCandless family wonderred
which townland this one was from or it might just be a Occupation that was
Anyhowm I hope this helps.

Best Wishes,
