Burials;
Christopherus 1732 of Keasdon, Agricola.

Seems to be probate for him, I think it's a will, which sadly is probably not available to us?
But we can at least see the probate act book, he is on page 55, it is in March 1732/3
Written in latin :)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSJQ-19Y8-N

You'll see on the next image, page 57, we get to April 1733 and by then of course they are just into the new year back then. And from 1733 it's latin no more, but in English (may help you!)

Add on the probate act book for Robert, 1806 (value under 100?)

Oh Wow, Jon -- you are an absolute star for finding this Will. Who would have thought it would be in Lancashire -- which at that time came under the jurisdiction of Chester for Wills etc. (I can't understand that actually).

I, foolishly, looked at Yorkshire Wills!

So -- this shows that Robert DID have a wife at the time of his death. The name looks like Anne - but is distorted on the image. Hence she could well be the Nanny of Keasdon who died in 1815 aged 81.

Brilliant Work, Jon!

Hi
Thanks, Pennines. I think it says Ann. I've even inverted it, sometimes helps (I hated negative microfilms!) and still looks like Ann.

I only found out a month or so ago that those wills were on FS.
Two pages of records, may be useful

Don't ask me about the jurisdictions!

I only know about these jurisdictions because I am from Lancashire!

People residing South of the River Ribble came under Chester. People residing North of the Ribble came under Richmond, Yorks! The Chester ones for Lancashire are now at Lancashire Record Office.

Just why this Will is showing up where it is -- I just cannot fathom. Then again - there are many things I cannot fathom!

It is a Richmond will I think. Perhaps the Lonsdale deanery may have mainly been in Lancashire? :-\

Hope Kit found the will useful? :)

Jon - you are correct. According to the Jurisdictions on Family Search it is a Richmond Will.

I have also just searched Lancashire Wills on Find My Past - and Robert Titterington's Will is listed - showing the place as Clapham and the county as Yorkshire! Doesn't make sense that does it.

However your sleuthing skills found it and I am sure Kit will be thrilled!

Hi Pennines and John,
A huge thank you to you both for all your kind help and replies and brilliant sleuthing - I am thrilled to have all that. I've spent the last hour or so reading Robert's Will and accessing TNA.
As you now know, (and this is confirmed by the Abstract from TNA), when Robert died in 1806 his wife Ann was still alive and so I think that Robert was the one who married Agnes Hardy and that she was the one buried as "Nanny" in 1816 - it all fits, apart from the fact that I too, don't understand why her name was omitted from his burial record.
Tomorrow I will look at all the other data and links that you have so kindly found for me too.
I initially requested help to try to find which baptism was for "my" Margaret - well you certainly have provided that, and so much more!
You have been so kind and have given so much of your time to help me. I have also very much valued your obvious wealth of knowledge and experience, and I couldn't appreciate all that you have done for me more.
Kit
