Help with will of 1508 would be much appreciated
« on: Monday 03 December 18 11:29 GMT (UK) »
(This is a follow-on from a post I made in the Common Room).

https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=804585.0

I would be very grateful if anyone could hazard a guess at this extract from a will of 1508. It is just the last few lines and I think I can see Day off Judgement. This part of the will is easier than the first page.

Thanks,

Dave

(Will in Leicester Record Office)

...the day off Judgement Also I macke

William Lee and Richard Ierland my

overseers off this my Last wyll Wytnes

s(ir) William [Oleame? / Oleavie?] prest Thomas Ierland

William [dewnie?] w(i)t(h) other [m(en)?]



Notes:

It is difficult to be sure of the spelling of two of the witness names.

The word at the end is usually men (sometimes more) but often (as here) it's not much more than scribble.

Could be Jerland ?
As for the other witness' name, the first letter is problematical, so it might help to see some other capital letters as used in the will, for comparison.

Could be Jerland ?

I started off with Jerland but then thought of the name Ireland.

Yes, seems more likely.
