This is a recent example of the kind of transcription that takes so many hours of painstaking work.
It is a tiny part of the will of Richard Squybbe 1591.
At least it is in English! Some wills of this date are in Latin – and one of our transcribers is now working on one of those.
A huge thank you to all our transcribers, who have made such an enormous contribution to our understanding of Milton Abbas history and to our heritage. Future researchers owe them a great debt.
Not all our documents are as difficult as this – please get in touch if you would like to help.
