Yes, that does make more sense - thanks.
So it probably actually reads "... Katherina e Graham e Mariae Graham ..."

I downloaded successfully from the links, and enlarged them - and I'm fairly sure that they're written by two different people.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / 1684 probate

Attached is the probate paragraph in Latin at the end of a 1684 will.
Can someone please tell me what the word is between "Grahame" and "Graham" ? and what it means ?

I'd appreciate it if someone would confirm that the first five words in the 4th line of the attached are "her sonne and my heire"


Added:
I think the last word on that line is 'soweing', not 'sewing'. He is giving him 'seed for sowing'.

Line 6 'shalbe spente in the House'

Yes "soweing" and "shalbe spente" make more sense - thanks.

And many thanks, Bookbox, for the Latin transcript and translation !!

Now all I have to do is find out what the name of Margaret's (presumably deceased) husband was  :D
