Petition Letter
« on: Tuesday 10 January 17 01:00 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Please could someone help me decipher the word above 'That your petitioner was never'.  For the life of me I can't make it out.

Many thanks

Many thanks Sami.  Thank Steve for your help.  I've just searched a map of Warwick and there is a Linen Street.  Perhaps referring to this area.

Still unsure of what follows Linen.  Linen off * in.

The word above "That your petitioner was never" is "Sheweth".

Thanks John.  Sami had already provided the answer to that one.

Can anyone work out what follows linen off * in?
