Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: 17th Century Will examples?

..considerac(i)on m(or)e moving by agreement undertaken.......

I've been puzzling over the Latin in the other post and just come to this one.  I'm inclined to think it's me moving:  that is, the good consideration motivated him to make the agreement to pay AD the sixteen pounds.

I'm inclined to agree with you on the word me

I'm a complete newby when it comes to transcribing and can appreciate differing opinions from those far more experienced than myself. Thanks for your input.

Thank you so much Goldie61

I now understand the contraction mark, which I didn't think meant anything! I'm hoping that having deciphered the first page of this Will, the next 4 pages will become easier. Certainly I am understanding the writers hand a lot better with your help.

Thanks once again, I really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for your help Goldie61. It makes sense for Midd to be an abbreviation of Middlesex. I can see further into the Will that he bequeathed property in Middlesex to his son.

Thanks also for the correction to greene. I was wondering how a groom could have been wealthy enough to own property:-)

Thanks for the links Goldie61. I think they will be most useful. In the meantime, I've transcribed what I THINK might be correct, but am stuck on a few words. This is what I have:

"In the name of God Amen the Six and twentith day of October Ao Dmi 1630
and in the sixth yeare of the raigne of our Sovraigne Lord Charles by the
grace of god & king of England ????
of the faith ?? I Solomon Shorter of Newington groome in the county
of ?????

And have attached the original here. Any corrections would be most welcome :-)

Hello, I have a Will from 1630 and will be attempting to transcribe the 5 pages. I'm aware of the tutorials from the National Archives which cover handwriting styles, but I wondered whether there was a transcribed example online that I might refer to. I'm not familiar with much of the terminology used and was hoping for a "leg up" before I take on this task.

I have no signature for Charles PEARCE. I looked at marriages between 1885 and 1897 for him in NSW, Victoria, South Australia and from 1897 in Western Australia for Charles Henry and Henry Charles Pearce, Pierce, Peirce, Pearse and nothing has leapt out at me...

If he was a carpenter by trade, he MAY have been a member of the carpenters and joiners union in WA. The next time I go to the state library, I'll see if I can find him. There are records from 1897. I'm not sure what that will gain me.

I also thought he may have been an apprentice in NSW or Victoria, but cannot find any records of indentures. They at least would have given me his fathers name.

I have contacted the Scots Albury School archivist in the hope that there might be early entrance records still in existence. I am yet to hear back.

However, of interest,there are a number of advertisements placed in the WA newspaper by one Mrs PEARCE of 25 Pier St. Perth. They seek home help of diffferent kinds. Or offer lodgings. The place is called St Elmo.

Yes, this is the wife of Charles Henry Pearce, gentleman and former pensioner guard, who died in 1909 (I think!) He had a son also named Charles Henry Pearce (the policeman) and is of no relation to "my" Charles Henry Pearce.
