Sorry Martryn but Toby Webb comes from a ballad about a highwayman. You have my sympathy and best wishes for some good luck. Like many others, I know what brick walls are like. T

Thanks Bookbox & horselydown86. Getting like a tutorial and I am starting to look at things differently. The lack of capital letters in so many cases makes things more difficult.
Line 6 in this will contains many repeated letters but even then the most I have got out has been
 "afforesaid" & "and". Pretty pathetic really so would be pleased for more help.
Thanks, Toby.

Thanks. 'Sick' makes sense but the words of the first phrase are quite possibly not common words and so are more difficult. The alphabet is helpful but nowhere do I see anything remotely like  Robert Hornblowe of Hurst, Berkshire which was the title of the will. More homework required. T

Wonderful. Many thanks. I am learning something. How about this. The second highlighted word is in actual fact the next line. Toby.

The report of this meeting uses the sign e,g. 15 per acre but elsewhere L10 per acre. Is this a printer's error or is there some other significance? Toby.

     I really must thank you so much for that transcription and translation. Much more than I ever hoped for.
     I take your point about strings and subscriptions but felt I was going to be in trouble with copyright if I had shown the actual text. Not at all clear about my position.
    Thanks once more, Toby.
