What is this forename?
« on: Tuesday 16 November 21 17:36 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I'd like to know what Charles' niece is called, Mrs. ????? Young. She is referred to three times in this clip but I can't for the life of me see/guess/work out what her first name is. I'm sure some clever folk here will be able to help. Many thanks in advance.

I read it as Arctus.

Might be his name rather than her name

I suggest the name is that of her husband: the older members of my family still refer to me as "Mrs Kevin ............... " when addressing letter, etc, rather than use my own forename.  As the lady is being referred to title first, I think the Will writer was using that additional degree of formality.

Thank you all for replying so speedily - and sorry Old Bristolian that you couldn't download the clip, whereas others could. Something I did wrong?

I couldn't see anything but the letters Ar?tas - but didn't think to see if kind Mr Google knew the name. The will is dated 1844 and she is a widow but how she fits as the niece of my ancestor is another mystery.
Thank you again.
