Will of Richard Aylmer
« on: Tuesday 05 May 20 09:12 BST (UK) »
Can someone tell me exactly what this says please.

His actual will is 2 pages long,but this is at the end of it,and seems to be signed a year after his death?

Thanks Carol

Did he die before the calendars changed over?

I thought that was early in the 1700's?

I'd suggest the will was originally proved in Ireland, and this is a copy made later for the PCC registry, endorsed and signed by the Irish registrar. Maybe the testator had assets in both jurisdictions?

Thank you Bookbox.

We could work out some words and hopefully got the gist,but the fact that there were 2 or even 3 dates was confusing. Yes he did indeed have links to the UK as well as in Ireland,so being proved in both places at 2 different times makes perfect sense.
