More of will of 1508
« on: Friday 21 December 18 11:34 GMT (UK) »
I would be very grateful for help with the will of 1508 which I have already received such generous help with. I think I can see a word here which would be very significant but is quite possibly my imagination. (I was hoping to post the last two bits but unfortunately it would have exceeded permitted file size). I think that the last line or so overlaps with what has already been transcribed.

Many thanks,

Dave :)

Many thanks horsleydown86. I think that one of the things which confuses me when looking at some of these words is the lack of capital letters at the beginning of words where I would expect them.
