Help reading will of Richard Wing d1822 Bickton, Hants
« on: Saturday 09 February 19 16:30 GMT (UK) »
I'm struggling to read most of the will of my 5th gt grandfather Richard Wing who was married to Sarah Triphook. He lived in Bickton, nr Fordingbridge, Hants and was a Yeoman.

Can anyone read the hand writing ?

Here are the first thirteen lines.

However, so that people who don't have Ancestry access can contribute, would you please make clips from the will (of about 8 to 10 lines only) and post them here.  Make the images fairly big on screen before you take the clip so that the text is readable.

Post one clip at a time, then when it is done post the next one.

Thanks very much for the help. It's much appreciated. Here is the first chunk of text, including the 13 initial lines you've already deciphered. Hopefully this will work !

Iíve done to the end of Extract 1, and the first 11 lines of Extract 2.

Another time, it would be good if you could please follow the advice given by horselydown86 above:

* Divide the text into snippets of about 8 or 10 lines only
* Post larger images (up to 500kb per image is allowed)
* Wait until each extract has been transcribed before posting the next one.

That makes the task much more manageable for us.

Here are the next ten lines of main text plus the marginal note.

Read the marginal note where the superscript + sign is inserted in the main text.

(Don't read the + as text):

Matthew Dorrington of ffordingbridge aforesaid ffellmonger All those my three
