I've done the first section up until horselydown started at 'Inprimis...' just to complete the whole thing.
You did well getting the images resized and uploaded.
Unfortunately the first one hasn't loaded quite properly - there is a little 'fuzzy' section at the far right.
The other images seem fine, so don't know what happened there.

I have put in brackets what I think would be there.
It's not going to make a lot of difference to the information in it!

And on the Eight and Twentieth day of June in the (year)
of our Lord god One Thousand Six hundred and fiftie Six (I)
William dunsdon of West Hanney in the county of Berks be(ing of)
perfect memorie Thanks be given unto god, I the said William

God my maker and Redeemer by whose death and Passion I tru(ly)
be saved. Inprimis..........

That is great, thank you very much indeed, I can add this to his record :)  I followed your advice with uploading the images, I am so pleased that I now know how to get things on here! Thanks for all of your help.

Invaluable - especially if you're going to be looking at lots of wills.  :)
