It may not be written with a capital, as these are.

However, keep it in mind.  Your reading of the Bill should reveal whether it's right or wrong.

Yes. Thank you, Iíve got a little list of questions running that I hope may be answered along the way.

Itís making fascinating reading (even if I am beginning to suspect it is not going to help me identify John Morgan!)

Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)

There's nothing better than a meaty Chancery suit to enrich & enliven family history.

Thank you so much.

I donít know why I didnít see Orator & Oratrix, I must have typed them a twenty times already. They look a bit different in this piece.

Another thought on the one in reply #1:

second line

a Discovery of the ..........  in ye s'd Bill
The second is difficult without more context.

It looks like mres, in the same way that lres is a standard contraction of letteres, but I can't think what that might be.

I know you've changed your mind on this, but I think you were right with mres. My first thought for it was matteres, which I think might fit in the context.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Bingley, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

You could well be right, Arthur.  Unless indentures feature prominently in the Bill, I'm happy to defer to matteres.
