Hello Marie

I have contacted you before about this Hood family, in the Newcastle upon Tyne / Tynemouth / area, Northumberland and you kindly responded, thank you.

Since then, I have tried to get a copy of the Will of Thomas HOOD BENTLEY, held in the Hong Kong University Special Collections.

The Deacons Law Firm of Hong Kong must have had dealings with the Will at some point, (or acquired the Will somehow).

The University Special Collections have responded to me in the UK and the Will is part of their Collections protected by Hong Kong Copyright Law. But it seems, I may see the Will in person under the provisions of the Hong Kong 'self service' rules by actually visiting Hong Kong in person.

Have you ever tried to get a copy (as you are in a different country to me), or were you told the same, or is this Will a new discovery to you?

Thank you.
