1661 document
« on: Saturday 02 November 19 09:55 GMT (UK) »
Hi, attached is some writing at the bottom of an inventory.

The deceased is Thomas Moseley of Wingerworth in Derbyshire. I suspect that his wife Dorothy remarried immediately after his death to John Fidler.

Can anyone suggest what the last few of words of the third line are - after Moseley? I assume the word at the end of the second line covered by the dark mark is 'alias', as in Dorothy Fidler alias Moseley.

Thanks

Let there be administration of the goods that belonged to Thomas Moseley, lately of the parish of Wingerworth, deceased, to Dorothy Fidler [otherwise?] Moseley, the relict of the same deceased. John Fidler of Wingerworth in the county of Derby, husbandman, and Jesper Walker of the same town and county, husbandman, were bound.
The relict was sworn before me, Edmund Nickson[?], surrogate

(I think you're probably right that the damaged word is alias = otherwise.)

Thank you so much!

I can't believe I couldn't see the word relict. Great to have a full explanation of it and confirm the relationship.
