Looking for the Will of William James who died 6 Feb 1806
« on: Saturday 31 January 15 03:45 GMT (UK) »
Hoping for some assistance to locate the Will of William James who died 6 Feb 1806 at Broker Row, Moorfields, London. William, a Quaker, was an umbrella maker at the time of his death.

I am sure the answer will be obvious but nonetheless I cannot locate it. :'(

Sorry, dog was pestering me to go out when I posted it.  I tried it later and got the same result as you.   :'(

If you get no joy with a will, consider trying the 'Friends' library

Hello Dawnsh

Thats a great idea and I hadn't considered that possibility at all.
