I think it says Reverend before the priest's name. I wondered if it said 27 may, but it does look like hora.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Y DNA no surname

Have you joined the project for the haplogroup you belong to? Administrators are very helpful. There are groups on FTDNA and there are Facebook groups. If you are looking for a surname, autosomal should be more helpful as Y-DNA can be many thousands of years before surnames, whereas autosomal only goes back two or three hundred years.

I joined a Facebook page. I think it's DNA help for genealogists. Donna Rutherford is on there and you can ask about specific problems. If you can get the Lost Cousins newsletter Peter Calver has done various DNA Masterclasses and they are very helpful. cb

Thank you, Watson (or should that be Holmes?) That's very clever. I did wonder why none of the food they are supplying this man with is fish. I have gone with stored in barrels for now but will mention herring to the person who asked for the translation, cb

My husband (ex Classics teacher but doesn't usually read mediaeval) has suggested imbarellectis to me and I have translated that and sent the piece to the person on Facebook who asked for a translation. Thank you again, Bookbox. It helped that you removed dimidium to its right place, cb

William le Mercer is paying to be supported by Whalley Abbey. I am doing fairly well with the help of Latham but in the following sentence, what does mibar mean?
"Item duo corpora bovina precii octo solid' et quatuor porcos ejusdem precii, tres petras buttiri et tres petras casei ac dimid' mibar allectis conventualis percipiendos ...."
Two carcasses of beef at 8 shillings and four pigs at the same price, three stone of butter and three stone of cheese and half a ??
It is from a printed book.
Thanks for any help, cb

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Question about Y-37 DNA Test from FTDNA
« on: Sunday 19 July 20 19:16 BST (UK)  »
FTDNA are really the only company for Y-DNA so you can't upload it anywhere else. One of the other firms will give you a haplogroup, not Ancestry, maybe My Heritage, not sure but they won't break it down any further so you still have to go to FTDNA. You may be lucky and get a match but my husband has loads of matches on Y-DNA and nobody of his surname. It's a very common surname.
