Wifes Name
« on: Friday 01 February 19 14:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone

I'm trying to turn my hand at reading a Will from 1617, not very successfully so far. I'm trying to make out his wife's name, can anyone help??

I think I can read "And I Will and give unto .......? my wife.."

Thanks

Ah Rebecka, thank you for that  :)

These old Wills are not the easiest to read at all  ???

I agree with Raybistre.

"Also I will and give unto Rebecka my wiffe..."
