House or Land name?
« on: Friday 08 February 19 10:54 GMT (UK) »
Hello
I have a name for a piece of land or a house but I'm not 100% sure what its called.
I think it could be 'Colelanebancks'? It appears to be wrote as one word. It is mentioned in the Will of George Bent, Gent of Cosby, Leic in 1693.
Its firstly listed to be given to his grandson Richard Dudley after the decease of Thomas and Ann Howers (Georges Son in Law) then further down George bequeaths 'Colelanebancks'? to Thomas and Ann Howers until they both die then for it to be reverted to Richard Dudley.
Its in Georges possession so I assume its in the vicinity of Cosby and Littlethorpe'
I'll attach a snippet to see what other people can decipher.

It does look like Colelanebancks to me.

Are you able to access maps for the area at the time?  They may show up something.

Or perhaps the Leicestershire Records Office or the local family history group may know of this place or George Bent.
