Newnham Probate Material 1701-20

Extract of Newnham will

Four wills and two inventories survive from this period. They represent a wide range of employment including the rector, a framework knitter and an innkeeper.

These transcriptions have been made from copies of original probate documents supplied by HRO and TNA.  Words have been modernized and punctuation added to make reading easier but names have been transcribed as written. Words in italics indicate omissions in the original document which have been added to make sense of the text. Words in square brackets indicate that they have been transcribed as seen but where the meaning is unclear. Basingstoke is described as being in the county of Southampton, the old name for Hampshire.
