Not a problem as others can obviously see it OK. All I get is a long page of gobbledegook

Obviously I don't know name of person that died in 1844, nor in what part of the country - however, an Aretas Sutherland Young married an Emma Frances Bullen 3/12/1828 Ryde, Hampshire.   Trees on ancestry show he died 1836 Fort St. George, India so wife Emma would have indeed been a widow in 1844.

Could this be the lady you seek?

It is indeed, Annette, than you so much. I have a Bullen ancestor from Somerset and am trying to see how she fits with the testator if at all - possibly a great aunt. I know the testator's grandfather was a Somerset man.

I think I'd better start a new thread with that question

Thank you again.
