Charles Abbott of Market Harborough - his Will - 1847

 Charles Abbott was the first husband of Elizabeth Ann Green, the sister of my g grandfather. He died, when they had only been married four years and she was only twenty five. Eleven years later she married Richard Lawrence, her late husband's apprentice.

Elizabeth Ann's Mother Frances wrote in December 1847 "my Daughter as had a great trial in the loss of her Husband but she as been Wonderfully suported and as many kind Friends she goes on with her Business at the Present and she says that she is much more Comfortable than she should be with out it and I wish her to do as she likes for I am happy to say that she acts very Privately? and looks up to him that as Promised to be the Husband of the Widow thay was married only 3 year". So it appears she had decided to marry Richard Lawrence very soon after her first husband's death. Maybe the terms of the will caused her to delay her second marriage.

William Lantsbury of Spratton - his Will - 1821

 This is the Will of the Father of Elizabeth Lantsbury, who married William Bunting. I think the Solicitor must have charged by the word and he really went to town with this Will.

Land held by Richard Spackman in Broadtowne in 1656

 The following is from Abstracts of Wiltshire Inquisitions Post Mortem returned in the court of chancery in the reign of King Charles I.

I assume Broadtowne is Broad Town which was in Clyffe Pypard parish but now a parish in it's own right.
