England / Re: Help with deciphering a situation in a newspaper clipping!
« on: Sunday 09 May 21 22:13 BST (UK)  »
Have you seen the entries in the London Gazette about Gilbert Handson?
https://www.thegazette.co.uk/all-notices/notice?service=all-notices&text=gilbert+handson

He is a bankrupt.
It sounds from the clipping that his 'son in law' has made a claim on his estate, but Gilbert owes a lot of money, (215 pounds 2 shillings and 5 pence).
The use of the pronoun 'he' in the phrase 'which he had received', makes it a bit confusing. Which 'he' is it referring to?
Had Gilbert received the services of Thomas?, or had Thomas received his pay out?
I think the claim by Thomas is being referred to the judge to see if it can be paid. Looks unlikely if Gilbert has 'doubtful' assets.

It is now a month since you posted this CG07.
Perhaps you missed my reply, as there has been nothing back back from you.

Many thanks HD and Bookbox.
He must have been awash with glasses!  :)

Thanks HD.
The testator is Thomas Trood, 1857, of 'St Thomas the Apostle' (which is Exeter), 'but formerly of Moorwenstow'.
Its a PCC will.

If you're going to take a look, could you possibly take a look at the line 2 lines above this?
It's the first page, about 3/4 of the way down.
Starts...... authorized by Law to do.......... Then I gave up!
Would you agree the lady's name is Mary Corham?

Many thanks

I'd be grateful if someone could help out with a couple of words here.
Thomas is leaving a large amount of plate and glassware to, probably, his mistress.
At the end of lines 2 & 3-
...............................................also my two ??
decanters and one dozen of my best wine glasses six of my best ??
or tumblers one dozen jelley? glasses ...................

Many thanks

I just finished the online course for learning how to read the handwriting just so I could try to read these. Are they the type of records you might find information about illegitimate births and things like that? Iím trying to find out about a birth that happened in 1775

YEs. This is what they mostly are about - about 90% of the time from the ones I've looked at.

I think she is Rose Cousins.

Still working on the other one!

Added:
Juliet?
Are there any other uncrossed 't's on the page?
The upstroke of the 't' in 'Patrick' is not crossed - the bar comes later over the next couple of letters.
