Family of Robert Hyde of Drumart, Parish of Drumcree, from Tom Hyde of Cavan, Ireland and Anthony Hyde of Canberra, Australia:

Robert Hyde of Drumart, Parish of Drumcree, signs his will on Feb.10, 1798, appointing his son, John Hyde, as executor. He divides his house and its contents in two, leaving one half to sons Francis and John, the other half to son Robert and daughter, Esther. [Note: There is a Drumart House about 1.5m northeast of Loughgall and about 5m from Derrycaw.] Unfortunately John died intestate leaving his father's will unadministered. A judge rules that another son, Robert act as executor. Robert died shortly after preparing his will and before Jul.18, 1800. The children of the elder Robert Hyde:

  1. John Hyde died before Jul.18, 1800.
  2. Robert Hyde
  3. Francis Hyde
  4. Elizabeth Hyde married Francis Bell and received a small bequeathment in her father's will.
  5. Rebecca Hyde married John Justin(?) received a small bequeathment in her father's will.
  6. Esther Hyde is admonished to "behave herself" in her father's will, a document that seems to suggest that Esther should marry neighbor James McCreight.
