Samuel Argent Will, few words
« on: Thursday 14 January 21 10:58 GMT (UK) »
 
It's just the few words I have highlighted I'm having trouble with.

After that is to say ? to daughter Elizabeth ? and something about the survivor of Christopher  :-\

... that is to say I give and
bequeath to my Daughter Elizabeth the Clock after
her Decease to my Son Christopher should he be the
Survivor to my Son Christopher the Tools and my
Son Thomas Twenty pounds ...


The lack of punctuation makes it hard to follow.
Elizabeth gets the clock, which goes to Christopher after Elizabeth’s death, if he survives her. Christopher also gets the tools. Thomas gets £20 ...

(Marks at the ends of some lines are just 'fillers'.)

I see, I guess so no-one can add anything they shouldn’t in the space  :)
