« on: Tuesday 09 October 18 19:04 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I know this is a long shot but is anyone able to look at Will's. I'm looking for a Will of William Chafer who was buried 19 Nov 1809 Burton on Stather, according to Lincs to the past web site there is a Will of a William Chafer 1809 would just like to know who is mentioned in the Will.

Edit: Here's what it says on the lincs to the past site:

Reference Name STOW WILLS/1809-10/31
Name: Chafer, William

Profession: Farmer

Place: Winterton, Lincolnshire

Repository: Lincolnshire Archives [057]

Thank you for any help given on this

Unfortunately, Lincolnshire Wills aren't on line.  You will have to apply to Lincolnshire Archives for a copy, you can find the forms on line on the Lincolnshire County Council website and also the fees charged.

Hi LizzieW,

Thank you but I do know all that I was hoping some one was going to Lincoln Archives and could have had a look at the Will, maybe I worded my thread wrong, never mind.

Hi Trish,

Good to hear from you hope you are keeping well. Yes I have that burial and as I can find no other William Chafer buried the same year was hoping the Will was his and to see if he mentioned a daughter Hannah Stark.  Also  cannot find anything on Norland House.

All the best

OK, don't know how easy that is at Lincoln, I know things aren't as accessible as other archives.

It's easy at the Lincoln Archives, make an advance booking and once confirmed you can ask them to have up to 3 documents ready for you on arrival.

From memory you can order 3 every 30 minutes which will or should be delivered within another 30 minutes.

I have never had a problem with this area.

Sadly I am not going there in the foreseeable future

hi Lizzie,

Thank you for your help anyway.

Thank you Edward that's good info to know, I'll have to wait until there is more I need from Lincoln Archives that's not on internet and try and go there next year.

All the best to you all.

That's what I meant by not as easy as other archives.  Mind you I've only been to two, Barrow in Furness and Hampshire County Council in Winchester.  In both of those you just turn up and if you know your way around you do your own searching, if not if you ask a member of staff they'll either point you in the right direction or just go and get what you want.  No hanging around, no need to book in advance.  I was amazed that you had to book, and when I found out when we went to Lincolnshire a few years ago, they didn't have any free slots as we hadn't booked well in advance. 

Hopefully, things are better now.

hi All,

Thank you all for the info, After further looking into William Chafer and his children I now know that the one who died in 1809 is NOT the William I'm looking for, the one I'm looking for actually died in 1835 and on some of his children's christening's he was down as a Weaver and doesn't look like he left a Will.

Again Thank you for trying to help.
