How do i find George Crowdens will
« on: Sunday 10 August 14 10:30 BST (UK) »
Hello
I'm hoping someone may be able to help me. One of my ancestors was George Crowden who lived in Uppingham in Rutland and died there in March 1828. I know that he left a will due to a newspaper article. I is also listed in the death duty index. Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy of the will please?
Thanks
Rich
