The asterisks **** show letters I cannot understand.
Red text words, or letters, are ones of which I am not convinced.
For this will and inventory I have, as far as possible kept the original spellings. For a few words I am sure of my transcription of the letters in the words but have no idea what the words mean. In the Inventory where obscure words appear I have given their meaning in the footnotes at the end.
Sealled delivered and
Signed Joane Bradshawe
