1661 will - part 1
« on: Friday 05 January 18 13:36 GMT (UK) »
I would appreciate some assistance with a fairly short will that is rather hard to read in places and in addition the right hand edge is buried in the binding, however only 5 or 6 letters appears to be missing.

Iíll post the will in 3 separate posts to make life a little easier

In the name of God * the twelth day of Januarie in
the twelth yeare of the Reign of our Sovraigne Lord Charles the 2nd by the grace
of God of England Scotland France and Ireland * defende of the faithe * And
in the year of our Lord 1660. I Robt Edwards of Wisbech * in the Isle of
Ely and Countie of Cambridge gent beinge * of body but of *
minde and memory blessed

thanks
