Johanna O'Brien was the daughter of John O'Brien. Johanna O'Brien married William Apjohn the Younger, son of William Apjohn Jr. and Elizabeth Lloyd, circa 7 November 1772; The Article of Agreement between William, only son and heir apparent of William Apjohn of Ballyna, and Timothy O'Brien, father of Johanna O'Brien, indicates that William is to receive 800 pounds dowery and that he himself was in possession of Knocknecroghy and Spittle (otherwise known as Sunglen). The memorial goes on to identify William's grandfather as William Apjohn, late of Knicker, deceased.1 Johanna O'Brien and William Apjohn the Younger were divorced circa 15 January 1777; At the time of the separation, William Apjohn and his father owned Sunglen (otherwise known as Spittleland and Knocknacroghy) "by virtue of a lease for three lives with a covenant for perpetual renewal bearing date on or about the Twenty Second day of May One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fourteen and made between George King late of Kilpeacon in the said County of Limerick Esquire and William Apjohn late of Kilduff," and residing there at that time was Bryan O'Brien, the brother of Johanna. Out of the estate, Johanna was to receive a sum of 800 pounds (the dowery from her marriage in 1774) and their son, William, is to receive 300 pounds when be becomes twenty-one. The memorial concludes that William and Johanna "did for the reasons therein particularly mentioned by and with the consent of their friends mutually agree to live separate and apart from each other." Among the trustees for the separation was Michael Marshall Apjohn, William's first cousin.2
