Some holes in 1776 Halder LWT
« on: Wednesday 17 April 19 16:35 BST (UK) »
Mostly transcribed but a few holes as shown in attachments. Any help much appreciated. I'm sorry that these are the best images I have. I know they are pixilated.

The first gap is just another:  ...for Ever all That my...

In relation to the second gap, your transcript duplicates part of the interlined section.

It should be:

...make my Said loving wife Jane Halder [I can't make out this short section but it ends with what looks like Rolex*]

Sole Executrix in this my will ^[interlined text goes here]^ She Paying all my...

I can't make out the interlined section with any confidence worth posting.  All it does is hurt my eyes.

* Not suggesting it is Rolex, by the way.

ADDED:

Rolex is:   hole &

So:

...make my Said loving wife Jane Halder [ye?] hole &

Thank you....mine, too. This is the second LWT copy received from Bothwick lately of this quality. I'm thinking they are doing something differently than in the past...not saving the copy at the appropriate resolution. My cousin forwarded this to me and I am suggesting contacting them and asking for a better resolution. But, it seems there is nothing particularly significant in the parts we can't decipher. Thanks for what you did....sorry for the quality!

Louise, I added to my original post - you may have missed it while replying.

Can you possibly read this one other missing word further up the LWT between what we think is "Pickering _______market..." (see attachment)

It's hard going, Louise.  Here's my best reading:

...Situate in the beforesaid ^[Pickering?]^ Near the Market Place where

My Said Son hen [?ives] in...



This isn't given as a definitive reading.  It's just a suggestion for consideration.

I should check with your cousin first to make sure this is how they received the images. (Something may have happened along the way getting them to you?)
But if they were like this, I would certainly contact Borthwick and ask for better copies.
Presumably you had to pay for this, so it's very poor service and quality if you did. Even if you didn't pay, it's still a very poor effort on their part.
