Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Latin
« on: Sunday 13 February 22 06:39 GMT (UK)  »
Kia ora

I have no idea where this came from, I filed it a long time ago.  I am asking if someone can tell me the date off it so that I can then work out whether I need to find out more about what it actually is.  I have a John Maynard in Kent, born C1630.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Payne Edith
« on: Thursday 27 January 22 06:32 GMT (UK)  »
Kia ora from sunny Otautahi / Christchurch in Aotearoa

One of these two wills is meant to be Edith Payne's but I cannot find her name in either of them, I think I can see Thomas Payne's name down the end of the first one.

Any help appreciated.

The Common Room / Roman numerals
« on: Tuesday 18 January 22 05:22 GMT (UK)  »
Kia ora

I do know what the Roman numerals mean, but I am not sure whether this means the taxes for Rysbrug in Surrey in 1313 was 18 pence?   See the gap between the roman numerals and the d sign.  He was a farmer and landowner.

Any ideas appreciated.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / end of will
« on: Monday 10 January 22 00:43 GMT (UK)  »
Kia ora

I think this is a pretty standard piece that is in Latin and has the red wax marks, why did they have those?  I am also wanting to know the first name on the first line of the Risbridger and the last signature on the left a Risbridger on the left at the end.

All help appreciated.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / James Arnold of Mickleham Surrey
« on: Wednesday 08 December 21 20:29 GMT (UK)  »
Kia ora

In the very first line it has the name of a place of residence I assume in Mickleham.  I look at and think it is 'wifamble or wilfamble'?

Many thanks to anyone who can assist in clarifying this.

I have these two pieces, is the Latin roughly the same as the one in English?  Or just her marriage?

Beatrice de Offaly was born in 1052 (Kildare, Edenderry, County Offaly, Ireland, pretty unlikely)  She married Walter FitzOther Constable of Windsor Castle 1st Feudal Baron of Eton, Buckinghamshire about 1067, in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales.  They were the parents of at least 5 sons. She died about 1100, in England, at the age of 48.

The Chronicle of Abingdon records that "Walterus filius Oteri, castellanus de Uuildesore" restored "duas silvas…Virdelæ et Basceat, apud Winckefeld nostram villam" to the abbot of Abingdon, dated to [1100/16], and that "uxorem suam Beatricem cum filio suo Willelmo" effected the transfer 8 Sep.

The Common Room / Conquest of Cola
« on: Saturday 11 September 21 22:44 BST (UK)  »
Kia ora

I am just wanting to understand what the 'Conquest of Cola' was.

I have information regarding Benefield manor which says: 
The manor of Twineham Benfield was held before the Conquest by Cola, of King Edward the Confessor, and Turgod held it of him, for two hides. 

I have of course looked on-line but I haven't found any information that clarifies the 'conquest of cola'.

Any help appreciated.
