Latin lovers ;)
« on: Friday 04 June 21 10:36 BST (UK) »
Hi, can any kind person tell me if the date of 30 January 1732 refers to the death date, or something else thanks.

Also would you say the profession was milliner???

No, not the date of death.  30 January 1732 is the date of granting of probate and administration of all the goods (after oaths).

I can't see enough of the second image to know the context.  How does it relate to the first?  Is the document in Latin or English?  Latin words molendinarius and molendinator are used for miller, but there may be others.

 Thank you, that's a blow!

I've attached a bigger section from the will. It was in English (thankfully) but the probate register is in Latin too.

Thanks for the image.

Presumably, it's "miliner" (with single "l").

REply #2 Which county did he live in? Was it Chester?
What was his son's name? Start of line 10  "C___ my son" The name of the son is similar to the name of the county.

Or the second letter could be o. Your previous suggestion of a Latin term for miller may be correct.

It says ‘bestow on me’

There are two dates in the probate section, 30 January and 5 February. Perhaps the executors were sworn on 30 January 1732/33 and probate was formally granted a few days later, on 5 February 1732/33. The last phrase is Em(anavi)t pro(bati)o = probate issued.

The occupation is poorly written, and it may have been corrected, but I think it is Milner, meaning Miller. (The spelling Milner is a variant of Miller.)
