Help reading will from 1778 please
« on: Sunday 30 December 18 11:04 GMT (UK) »
I have a scan of a will, written in 1778

The part I am having a problem with is here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/i8ivxg6vjtx53lv/mn-will-1778.jpg?dl=0


In the Name of God Amen
I Margaret Nadauld of Ashford in the Parish of Bakewell County of Derby Widow being of sound and [xxxxxxx] Mind and Memory do make and ordain this my last Will and Testament in the Form and Manner following.

Its not vital but its driving me crazy! If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks

Boo

Thanks Jen :-)

I had disposing as a possible but it didn't seem to fit the context, though that's from a very much post 1778 perspective!

I've learned something new,
Thanks again
