Translation from Latin I think
« on: Saturday 29 November 14 01:09 GMT (UK) »
Would  any one be willing to have a go at translating this will please. I have tried a translation tool but what it came up with made even less sense

Thanks Steve

Itís not a will, but a judicial Ďsentenceí, giving the courtís decision in a dispute over the will of Sir John Hannam of Westwood, Wilts. The dispute is between the executors, Charles Savage and Thomas Grove, and the widow Elizabeth Hanham. It's incomplete here. There should be another page, which will show the verdict.

In case you donít already have it, the will of Sir John Hanham was proved in the PCC in 1710 and can be downloaded from TNA (for £3.30) or Ancestry (free, if you have access). The will is in English  :)

Thanks Bookbox
                          Thanks for the help, I have access to Ancestry which is where I found this one. Is there one on Ancestry in English?

Thanks   Steve
