Henry Lock
« on: Tuesday 29 January 19 19:24 GMT (UK) »
Hi All

Hoping someone can work their magic for me on this one. To be honest I'm not even sure what this is but am lead to believe it relates to Henry Lock.

Any help gratefully received.

Itís a grant of administration for the estate of Henry Lock, as recorded in the act book for the diocese, implying that there was no valid will. The full date should be higher up the page, or on a preceding page.
