  Observations :

This will is extremely difficult to decipher because of the poor quality of the paper it has been written on and the poor quill. It is a mass of blots and blotches the inventory is quite detailed and contains some unusual items what for instance was a pillowbord? There seems, on this photocopy, to lack a testator's signature but some faint marks on the bottom right of the will above the probate paragraph are probably a signature or mark which has been too faint to register on the copy. Documents include a bond; 4 pages in all.
