Thomas Warren extract 1612
« on: Thursday 29 November 18 22:28 GMT (UK) »
I am hoping someone here can help me with this extract from the 1612 Will of Thomas Warren of Boughton Aluph. The majority of the Wills fairly readable however in this section in looks like someone has written over the text (I think it's where the ink has bled through) and this has made it more tricky.

I can read from the top where it says "Will and my meaning is that John Warren sonne of Abraham Warren my brother shall.....the said John Warren....." after this the next two lines seem obscured although the next word is clearly "and".

Is anyone able to work out the words in these two obscured lines and let me know what the whole extract says?

Thanks in advance
Matt

Don't know if this will help, but I removed a lot of the text that was overlaid.
I just like to do photo restores.

Hiya

How did you do that? It definitely looks clearer. I'll go through it tomorrow and compare it with the Will and let you know how I get on.

Many Thanks
Matt
