In 1901 he was in the house of his mother, Hannah, and his sister, and they had two servants, Caroline Tyler and Rose Martin.

This could be a complete red herring but in view of the above I am curious about the George Handy who in 1841 is living with William Croft (30), Mary Croft (30), Edward Croft (36) and Mary Croft (5) in Tipton.

Do you have date of birth and/or marriage?
Were the children born in Ireland?

The Tasmanian Names Index has a Mr. Morris and wife (no christian names listed) arriving on the 'Aguilar' on 4th February 1824.
A possibility.

I thought that they were only watermarked on the ordering page, the will copies of those that I have ordered and downloaded have no water mark on them.  I don't know how long they will stay free though as it was only originally offered as we could not visit Kew.

I ordered one just yesterday for free.
You just add the will to your 'cart' as if you were buying a copy but it shows as 0.00.  It's then sent to your email address and you can download it without any watermarks.

Are these witnesses to a marriage?
Did he write his name himself or make his mark?
