Hello, could anyone give me a quick precis of the attached - it relates to a 1713 will written by John Ashburner, a mariner, of Aldingham in Lancashire).

In the will he leaves everything to his mother Isabella Ashburner (of Aldingham) and nominates his uncle William Boulton (of Wapping, London) as executor.

Thank you
