Help deciphering will
« on: Wednesday 11 January 17 04:49 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I am trying to read the references to "his daughter Elizabeth" in the will of Robert Newman. I have attached 2 snippets.

Many thanks

Hi Annie

The will is dated 1728 and is from the Hampshire Record office. Robert was from Neatham, Holybourne. Hope this helps

Hello Bookbox

Thank you very much. I guessed it would be Elizabeth's surname but could not read it in either place.

I really appreciate your help.
