The Wayback Machine! Brilliant, sarah...hadn't thought of it :P Thanks!

Strange but it doesn't seem to work more than once from the link. If you are having the same problem, bookmark the link first time there and use the bookmark to access the page subsequently.

Cheers,

I don't know if anyone has linked to this, but I found the following link extremely useful when I couldn't figure out certain words on some 17th century wills - the best example for me being "a moiety", which I was consistently transcribing as "moistly" and completely changing the context of the sentence in the process :-)

Some years ago I was able to help a lady on this site who was having difficulty with a 16th century Lincolnshire sheep farmer
"s inventory. The word causing difficulty was hoggett. This was causing confusion, a hoggett is a lamb from the previous season and not a piglet.
