Will and memorandum of Richard Worrall, senior, glazier, 1635

Worrall left a substantial bequest to his married daughter, Agnes but then reduced it by a codicil and by another codicil empowered his brother-in-law to take action against Agnes' father in law should the need arise. All this is intriguing but unfortunately what lay behind it is not evident. No inventory survives and no indication is given of the tools of his trade.
