Thanks Maggsie.
                        Now I really am confused, I know the Richard you are referring too very well and he was never to my knowledge living in Bradford Moor and I have a fairly complete picture of his life.

He belongs to another  tree of mine that I am trying to link to. He did however indenture one John Barker as a Clerk in Feb 1800. What date was the info about Richard living at Greenhill? The problem with our family is that we have  too many Richards and Williams

I do have Ancestry and also FindMyPast

Thanks Maggsie. That's great I was beginning to wonder if he existed, now I know he did and Ann cannot be far behind.

Thanks arthurk, the writing on the will is fairly clear (see extract) that is not to say Greenhow Hill is not a possibility. William whose will it is, is described as a Gentleman, I have been unable to find his occupation if in fact he had one. I would imagine that the family he had in York's moved up there.

I have a will dated 1813 for a William Hannam of Bermondsey London in which he has made various bequests. Two of these bequests are to his sister Ann Barker and his brother Richard Hannam both of Greenhill in the county of York. Below is a copy of part of the will, the problem I have is that I cannot find a location for Greenhill. The only one I found was near Norton in Sheffield, Can anyone help or suggest an alternative.

Survivors Upon Trust to sell and dispose of the same
as soon as conveniently may be after my decease and to pay out third
part of the money arising therefrom unto my Sister Ann Barker of
Greenhill in the County of York and the remaining two third parts thereof
unto my Brother Richard Hannam of Greenhill aforesaid And I direct
that the Receipt of my said Trustees and their Survivors shall be a sufficient

I have almost finished transcribing a will but am stuck on the last line. It seems to have some abbreviations which I do not recognise, I have as far as,

Betwene them. Item I give to Alice bonde  ?????????? ???  I give to ?? John  ??? ? ???? John

Also the last word on the line above seems to be a contraction for something help please.

Thanks  Steve
