Will of 1508
« on: Friday 21 December 18 16:14 GMT (UK) »
This is the part of this will which I would have posted before but could not because of file size constraints. It comes from the second page and before the last section which has already kindly been transcribed.

Maybe Nicholas Oliver ?

ADDED - in general, it would be helpful if you could keep to just one thread for each document, and add to it as further queries arise from the same document. This saves us having to jump about between threads to check what might have appeared earlier.

Many thanks for all your help in transcribing this, and I will do as suggested re posting in the same threads.

The name Oliver is certainly suggestive. Olivers lived in Bosworth in the C17 and an Oliver, probably related, married a Lea in this parish later.
