So That's Where I Get It From

List of Wills – READ (A – M)

This is a list of the Wills I have for those with the surname READ.  Where I know they are my ancestors for sure, I will say who they are in relation to my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read. 

 For those that I am still unsure as to their relationship to my ancestors (although I am sure many are related, but yet to be proved), there will be no comment about relationship to my ancestors!
