On the Wills (Paternal Side) Page I have added a copy of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read’s Will and underneath that a transcript of it.
I have also added two Pages in this section – called List of Wills - READ (A – M) and List of Wills – READ (P – W). There’s a long story as to why I split the list, maybe I will tell you another time!!
If anyone wants a copy of Cozens Read’s Will just either right click, save to your computer etc., or I can send a copy via attachment in an email. For any copies of the other Wills listed I can send those via attachment in an email also. Just let me know what you would like!
In the next day or two I hope to also add to this same section a List of Wills of other surnames of those who married into the Read family or Read females who married into other families.
I’ve got a large number of Wills so it has taken a bit of time to sort them all out!
I’m waiting for 13 more Read Wills to come from the Buckinghamshire Record Office but so far they are well over the 10 working days for delivery. I sent a query but got an autoresponse that they hope to reply to that within 5 working days! So if I still haven’t received my Wills (which are all paid for) by the time they answer my email about the non-delivery so far, it will be much much later than they state for delivery time!! I expect our postman has been wondering why I have eagerly and avidly been awaiting his arrival every morning for days!!!!!
