Gloucestershire / Re: Looking for Four Mile Bottom at Rodmarton

Thank you, I feel that Brentor Boy has nailed it as the family next lived at Culkerton which is close to the four mile distance location. 

Thanks to everyone for their interest.

Fermanagh / Re: James GORRELL b.1797 in or near Enniskillen Ireland.

Isaac Gorrell married Mary Alexander. of Dromore, Tyrone.  According to a distant relative Isaac was said to have come from Roscor.  They had at least 5 children around the 1840s of whom at least 4 came to Australia around the 1860s.  They settled around Kiama and Berry and some later moved to Sydney. 
The Gorrell/McVity is the marriage of one of these children.  Their mother Mary also came to Australia.
A bit more to add to the story.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Help with part of 1593 will
« on: Friday 19 November 21 05:46 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you once again horselydown86.  And also for correcting my assumption that William inherited 20 shillings.  20 pounds must have been quite a lot of money for those times.
Much appreciated.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help with part of 1593 will
« on: Friday 19 November 21 04:41 GMT (UK)  »
I have had a go at transcribing a will of 1593 but this section has flummoxed me.  It starts Item I bequeath to William my son 20 s [shillings] to be delivered unto him when he shall ....................  and also ..... my executrix shall maintain and keep him at school for two ..................

Could anyone fill in the rest of it please?
Many thanks

Looks like there was more than one Four Mile Bottom.  I don't think the Barnsley one is the one I am interested in.  Too far from Rodmarton.
Thanks Kay for all your input, it is much appreciated.

Thanks very much for your replies Kay.  My only worry is that the four mile stone appears to be in the parish of Coates, not Rodmarton.  But I suppose they could have lived there and had the children baptised at Rodmarton.  What is interesting is that the matriarch of the family in the early 1700s was called Jacament.
Do you know what the term "Bottom" means besides the obvious one?
Thanks

Gloucestershire / Looking for Four Mile Bottom at Rodmarton

Some of the parish entries I've found for my family at Rodmarton in the early 1700s state they were "of Four Mile Bottom".  Would anyone know where this is? 
I've searched Google with no results and some of the Library of Scotland digital maps again without success.  I've noticed Jacament's Bottom on the maps and wondered if this would be the same place?
Thanks

Thank you Horselydown86 for completing the will translation.  I think you may have enjoyed the challenge, the writing was pretty terrible but you've both done a wonderful job of it.  I am so happy with it and grateful.

How can I ever thank you both for the wonderful transcription of the 1583 will!  What you have done far exceeded my expectation and I am truly grateful and humbled by your kindness. 
It is a will like none I have ever read before and gives so much detail on Richard's life.  Thank you also for the explanation of some of the terms.
Be safe and well.
