Help required with tightly written will.
« on: Friday 20 March 09 18:25 GMT (UK) »
Hello to all,

I have the last will and testament of a Benjamin Dickinson died 1848, East Stonehouse, Devon, I am researching a Benjamin Dickinson born 1769 Devon, who joined the Royal Marines and made Major in 1810, commanded a regiment in Lisbon, Portugal, 1812 and then ???.......is there any kind soul willing to give me an e-mail address, so I can send the will as an attachment for them to role their eye over it (so to speak) its too big to attach on this site, basically I need to know if there is anything in the will that would link this Benjamin Dickinson, to my Major Benjamin Dickinson of the Royal Marines, I have managed to pick out several names his wife, son and daughter and the Pengelly brothers (both Lieutenants) in the Royal Marines who witnessed the will, but is their anything else in the will that would imply he was formerly of the Royal Marines. There are ships mentioned, but am unable to decipher their names >:(

Hoping someone will take up the challenge ;D

Regards,

Peter ;)

I would give it a go, but how can I send you my e-mail address privately?
