Help with "relation" word 18th Century Will
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 23:28 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,

Can I get an opinion on what the word in yellow is?

On the extract below I can read...

...years also I give and bequeath unto Jane Cork daughter of my brother James Cork the sum of twenty pounds of like lawful amount to be paid to her at her age of twenty one years also I give and bequeath unto my ________  Phillip Cork....

The word appears a 2nd time but I can't work out what it says.

Thank you!

Definitely Nephew

Look at how the "e" and curvy "w" are formed in twenty 2 rows above.

Also "h" in her above.

Mark
George HOOD of Selby Before 1812 - Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

Thank you all, yes I think you are right.  There is a nephew listed further up the page and it is clearly Nephew so looks a bit different but looking at these 2 in isolation of nephew number 1 I see it now.  Thanks :)
