1503 Latin Will - to all my godsons
« on: Sunday 26 May 19 16:27 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I have one last snippet from this 1503 Will.  I've attached a larger clip of the Will and highlighted the words in yellow that are giving me problems.

I am grateful for any assistance in deciphering this.

Thanks for posting a larger clip.

The second highlight is unicuiq(ue) eo(rum) = Ďto each one of themí.

The first highlight looks like it should be o(mn)ib(u)s, but it seems to start with another letter. He's leaving 40 pence to each of these godsons, and 12 pence each to all the others. I was wondering about trib(u)s ('three'), but Iím not fully convinced.

Once again, Bookbox, thank you so much.  I needed confirmation on the unicuiq(ue) eo(rum).  That remaining word, though, is a real stumper.  Your thought of trib(u)s is one that I hadn't considered.  It would have been very helpful if the Testator had either named the godsons or said which side of the family they came from.  Oh well, to those present at the time I'm absolutely positive that it all made enormous sense. 

Thank you, once again, for gracious assistance.
