Will of Edward Cokett 1482 in Latin
« on: Tuesday 14 May 19 18:50 BST (UK) »
Firstly, thanks to all those who are helping me in sorting out the contents of these wills, I really am very grateful and appreciate your efforts.

This will is, in theory, the brother of William the rector and again I am just trying to sort out family groups and relationships so I don''t need a full transcription just the important elements, ie:-

Date of will
Date of probate
Names
Occupations
Relationships

many thanks again

Thanks, there are a few more wills to work through and I'll need assistance even with the ones in English as the writing is so hard to read (for me anyway).
