James Cree was baptised on 21 April 1805 in Presbyterian Church, Millisle, Donaghadee, County Down, Ireland. The parents' names are not shown in the register.1 He was the son of William Cree.

His father William Cree died c 1838 in Millisle, Donaghadee, County Down, Ireland.2

James Cree was a farmer.3

James Cree left a will dated 7 February 1864 at Millisle, Donaghadee, County Down.


James Cree's will, transcribed below, indicates that he was not married, or that he was widowed with no surviving children, since the beneficiaries are his sisters, nieces and nephews. The will confirms that this is James son of William Cree (rather than his cousin James son of David Cree who was three years his junior), since it was this James who is known to have had sisters Elizabeth (Betty) and Hannah. He also had sisters Agnes and Margaret who may have pre-deceasd him as they are not included in the will. However the fact that four surnames occur amongst the nieces and nephews shows that all his sisters had children. Neither his brother William Cree nor any Cree nieces or nephews are mentioned.

The will shows that James had land in both Ballycopeland and Ballymacruise, the former probably being the family home. In fact the quantity of land owned by James suggests firstly that he had inherited his father's land and secondly that his brother William may also have predeceased him.

It is worth noting that the executors did not carry out his will as the following details from the on-line will index show:

Letters of Administration (with the Will annexed) of the personal estate of James Cree late of Millisle County Down Farmer who died 6 March 1864 at same place (left unadministered by James M'Keag and William Murdoch the Executors) were granted at Belfast to Hannah Bailie of Ballycopeland in said County Widow a Sister the surviving Residuary Legatee. (Former Grant 27 April 1864.)

Copy of the will of James Cree of Millisle, died 1864, as contained in the will book of Belfast Probate Registry. PRONI web site. Transcribed by Mike Spathaky, January 2011.

I James Miller of Millisle near Donaghadee in the county of Down Schoolmaster aged Sixteen Years and upwards make oath [etc. etc.] [refers to James Cree as a farmer]

... and of John McAuley Junior of Donaghadee aforesaid Presbyterian Minister. [etc. etc.]

...Sworn at Belfast... on the twenty third day of April 1864...

The Last Will and Testament of James Cree late of Millisle in the County of Down, farmer, deceased was proved... and probate granted... to James McKeag of Ballybuttle and William Murdoch of Millisle... farmers... 27th day of April 1864.3


James Cree died on 6 March 1864 in Millisle, Donaghadee, County Down.3 Probate of James Cree's will was granted on 27 April 1864 in Belfast, Ireland. James M'Keag of Ballybuttle (Donaghadee) and William Murdoch of Millisle (Donaghadee) were the administrators.

The importance of this grant is that it suggests a link between the Cree families of Ballybuttle and those of Millisle.4 Probate of James Cree's will was granted to Hanna Cree on 22 March 1886 in Belfast. It was then 22 years since the original grant of probate but the will had remained unadministered by the original grantees.5

It seems that William may have died before his brother James, since James passed on substantial amounts of land in his will.
