VM, thanks again

I need to find the will of John junior & this is not being as easy as I had hoped.

I have 2 further Cokett wills that are much longer and also in Latin. I am trying to find someone to extract the highlights for me as they may help fill a probable generation gap.

Can you not post them here, perhaps in smallish sections?

I could but, to be honest, I feel that asking people to transcribe 2 x 2+ page Latin wills is a little unfair.

However if people are saying "I don't mind', then I will

It may take a while to get through them, but you could try posting the first 8-10 lines or so, and see what people make of them?
