« on: Saturday 10 June 17 01:27 BST (UK) »
I found this will and was wondering if anyone would know what a couple of things are. the will starts on page 291 and goes through page 294.   Will is for a John Crow Junior son of John Crow and Elizabeth christian.    he leaves right and title to his daughter Elizabeth Crow, supply of Ramsey and Fame? of Douglas, not sure if that word is fame.  would that be property.  will link is below.   John Crow sr. owned land called East Aust.

Hi

The actual will, page 294....

"Then I leave and bequeath unto my daughter Elizabeth Crow all my right and title in those Vessels called the Supply of Ramsay and the Fame of Douglas as legacy"

The later it says

"...it is my will that the vessel called the Fame of Douglas.....be sold"  so that  the proceeds can be used to pay any promisary note (debt) to one John Douglas.

The words are capitalized,  Supply and Fame. That sounds like ships, boats...vessels to me? Unless I'm interpreting 'vessels' incorrectly.

Cheers

"Supply of Ramsey" and "Fame of Douglas" are ships! -
 usual way of giving name of a vessel is" name" of "Port where registered"
any thing with a Manx Connection

don't think it is online  + can be tedious to search these records -
Fame of Douglas seems to be a name reused for 2 boats in the 1790s as some brief details are extracted in a report I have

thank you Frances.    I did find out some good information from this will of John Crow.  I probably wouldn't need to search records, but thanks for the information.      :)
