Oh dear! Do you want to let us know what you know for sure about Sarah?

Her father's trade was a nurseryman.

Vogelfanger is a pretty unusual name!  :)

Not if you are a fan of The Magic Flute!

Perhaps it's the equivalent of Fowler (rather than bird catcher).

Wow. I'm afraid I have only just noticed that you have transcribed this will (for some reason I didn't bet a notification), but thank you very much indeed. I hadn't realised the language would be quite to archaic/interesting: I've come across variations of umquhile and brother german before, but zeir/kyis/zowis are from a new language!

Dorset Lookup Requests / Re: John Vinter

I didn't look very closely but I did see a series of Richard Lambert's of Wimborne leaving wills, including one who had a daughter Jane and a son Richard - the last name being a candidate for your Jane's father.

Added: I live in Wimborne so would offer to look at gravestones, but the cemetery doesn't start until the 1850s and those round the Minster have been cleared.

I have looked through the links and your theory looks pretty good to me: the available research backs up the likely real-life situation as far as it can. Well done - there are Lambert wills to take things back further.

Here they are although, to be honest, I have not yet established that they are direct ancestors.

Thanks very much: plenty of words/abbreviations I hadn't picked up.

I do have an earlier 1578 will (testament dative?) for a James Goff of Redding, full brother to John Goff, that may throw some light on the land, but I am only slowly wading my way through it with the help of an online alphabet! I may post later.
