Uffculme Wills
« on: Wednesday 07 October 20 06:14 BST (UK) »
Hi
Would anyone have a copy of vol 40 of the Devon & Cornwall Record Society publications - The Uffculme Wills and Inventories, 16th to 18th centuries and could do a lookup for me please?  I am looking for the surname Bowerman and variants.
Many thanks

Anstice Bowerman 1673 - admon, admin John Greene weaver
Sarah Bowerman 1827 - admon, husband Giles of Tivertin scrivener as admin, also William Dickinson and William Sweetland, gentlemen of Uffculme
William Bowerman 1845 blacksmith; apparel and watch to James Duckham son of John D of Shirehampton, Glos; everything else to wife Hannah; there's more detail if you want it.
Henry Bowrman 1640 husbandman: will is a PCC will, so you can get it from TNA for nothing at the moment. Names daughter Bridget as executrix and to inherit residue; others Thamsen (wife); Bridget Thorne (mother-in-law); sister Elizabeth wife of Richard Mitchell; sister Elizabeth wife of Roger Bull of Hemiocke; Roger and Alice, children of Roger Bull; brother Edward Bowerman of Cullompton; goddaughter Cattren Chollie.
Several other mentions of the surname but as witnesses or admins.
Hope this is helpful
