Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Probate of Will
« on: Tuesday 17 November 15 16:02 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone help to decipher the bottom section of this will of 1727 ...especially the added section in the bottom left hand corner(in Latin) referring to probatum? .... It was the will of Anne Brigginshaw(various spellings) and refers to her daughter Mary(who was probably not yet 21 when her mother Anne died) Usually the last section of a will is the Probatum but this uses the word ?icesimo? (what does that mean)

Thank you

Gloucestershire Lookup Requests / KEMERTON
« on: Thursday 05 March 15 17:28 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to research how Kemerton Court was passed down through family lines in a certain era. It was the time (late 1800's) when Sybil Maud Hopton held it. British History Online (originally Victorian County History) states that :- Sybil married Col. John Dutton Hunt, who assumed the name of Hopton, (fn. 149) and after his death, in 1918, his widow put the estate up for sale. Some 300 a., about half of the estate, were purchased by the Holland-Martin family of Overbury

Now this can't be because John Dutton Hunt died in 1934. But, Sybil did sell large sections of her various estates off around 1918 and 1919. Can anyone local to the area and has studied Kemerton Court help me with their local knowledge?

Thank you
Sean Brown
