C16th will extract
« on: Thursday 10 January 19 13:49 GMT (UK) »
I would appreciate a bit more help with a will of 1575. I think I understand quite a bit of it, but the exact transcription of some words eludes me. I think the testator is leaving his son half his milk cows and crops in his fields, which his son is to inherit if he outlives his mother in law?

Thanks,

Dave :)
