It costs 2.50 to look at a will in IoM - that's a lot cheaper than UK, Rosie! ;D

I am impressed KG  ;D   I must admit I was surprised that the certificates were dearer than the UK.

K Garrad,
Many thanks for your last message. From the information you have given me the will is definately the person I am after.  I recognise the surname Adamson as being the married name of one of  Eliza's sisters and the fact that her nephews were in Australia explains why I could not find the Adamson family in England. I was aware one of her brothers emigrated to Australia but not a sister as well.

Thanks for the information I will PM you my e-mail address
Regards
Brian
