Help with 17C handwriting
« on: Monday 11 January 21 09:53 GMT (UK) »
Dear All

I am having trouble deciphering some of the words in this will document of Elizabeth Buckshell 1658 especially the surnames of the 2 Marys, I wonder if anyone could help.

Many thanks

Thanks, I thought it might be but I'd hoped it was something else that I might be able to make a connection with.

Best Wishes

I agree. The first has a lower-case s, the second a capital S.
