Draft Will of Thomas Harris of Ashburton [1619]

Devon & Cornwall Notes & Queries Vol. 11:1, (1920), pp. 49-50.


Hugh R. Watkin

Prepared by Michael Steer

The author indicates that the draft will was written on the reverse of a long roll of paper marked M37, the face of which was a record of Courts held at Totnes in 1505. Watkins believed the draft to be a solicitor's rough notes, mainly in English. The draft will is dated June 26th, 1619.
