Will and inventory of John Brown of Bosbury, husbandman, 1589

This transcript includes the will, two nuncupative memoranda and the probate inventory of John Brown, husbandman, of Bosbury. The will was made on 24th March, and then on 8th and 9th May he made two statements in front of witnesses regarding his son William Brown and two messuages called Hill House and Old House alias Addis, both presumably in Bosbury. He must have died soon afterwards, as the probate inventory was taken on 22nd May. Probate was granted on 9th November 1589.
