« on: Saturday 02 October 21 03:26 BST (UK) »
Hi

To my brother John Bennett, my niece Jane Phillips.
Thomas Rutt, Joseph Rutt, Nicholas Rutt, John Rutt, Catherine Rutt, Elizabeth Gottrell/Gottrall children of my late sister Millicent


Is this a PCC Will?
What year are we talking about, to check relationships

I agree with:

Bennett
Phillips


Then I have:  Cottrell

Compare the C in Catherine.

I think the other surname is Knee, but I would like to compare to other examples of K and R.

Can you confirm the testator is William Bennett and supply the date please.

Wow!

Thank you for your quick replies. The Will is William Bennett's d 1857 Tormarton, Gloucestershire. The probate date is 23 September 1857.

Rutt Or Knee are the two names I had wondered about but I cannot find any marriage for Millicent Bennett to either a Knee or a Rutt and no  births so that didn't help work out which one.

I am so grateful for the help.

Regards

It is:  Knee

Here are examples of R and K taken from the next will in the register.  Kitnocks is in Hampshire.

Thank you so much.

I will have to keep working and see if I can tie in the names Knee and Cottrell.

Possible

William Knee (transcribed on ancestry as Kneww) married Milicent Bennett by banns 20 September 1789 at Marshfield.
Witness John Williams and Robert Cox.
Robert Cox signs several on the page.

Milicent signs as Bennitt.
