William Taylor Will Extracts
« on: Monday 26 November 18 21:41 GMT (UK) »
Hi I'm hoping someone can help me with some extracts from the Will of William Taylor. In  most of the extracts I can read most of the extract but there are a few words I'm unsure of and in some extracts I would appreciate clarification of some of the words.

In this extract I'm not too sure of the name in the second line. It looks like it says "I gyve
to John Pott" however the surname might also be "Pett". After this I'm not sure if it says "my Cloke" or "my Clarke". The word after this has also got me stuck, it looks like it starts with a "C" but I'm not sure what it is - Cantle?

Thanks
Matt

Here are extracts 2 & 3 of William Taylor's Will.

In the first extract I'm hoping someone can confirm the name in the second line for me. I think it reads "I give to every one of Rychard Taylors children a ewe"

In the second extract it says "Also I gyve to Myldred" but I'm not sure of the word after that. It looks like "Servant" but can anyone confirm this for me?

Thanks again
Matt

Hi

Thanks for that confirmation. I never thought it might be a variation of "colt".

Thanks for confirming it did describe Myldrede as "my servant". I wonder if Rychard Taylor was related to William. He could possibly be a brother.

I have some other extracts to post which I would appreciate help on.

Thanks
Matt

Here's the next extract from William's Will.

Two lines down from the top it looks like it says "Frances Taylor my sonne" but I'm not sure of the word before "my sonne" I think it might say "I gyve more over" but it would be great if some one could confirm if "more over" is right.

It then goes on to say "Tenn pounds of lawful money" and then mentions someone whose first name is William [Wyllyam]. Can anyone tell me what his surname is?

Thanks in advance
Matt

You are correct with the first one:

...I gyve more over to ffrannces
Tayler my Sonne...


I believe the other name is:  wyllyam Nucker

If you can find another N in the will it would useful just to confirm the capital is right.

Many thanks for those. It's good to hear I wasn't far off with my reading. The following sections have got me a bit more stumped than the previous ones though. In the middle of the following extract I can make out the bit in the middle where it says "I give to my said sonne Frannces Taylor my best Cloke" [I think it says Cloke]. However I'm stuck with some of the following. It looks like a he mentions a "Peter Church" and also near the end a "Thomas Taylor".

Thanks in advance for any help here.
