Will of Elizabeth Pincombe, widow, dated 17 Oct 1816 and probated 16 Oct 1819 (Source - Inland Revenue Wills page 883)

The last will in my cache for Pincombe is this particular one written by Elizabeth Pincombe widow of the City of Exeter. I do not have any particular information on this Pincombe line other than the original chart for Exeter prepared by the earlier Pincombe investigators. I can not locate a marriage between a Pincombe and an Elizabeth Arthurs which was my first thought on reading this will. However, I am unable to clearly read the relationship between Samuel Arthurs and Elizabeth Pincombe. I do not think that it says brother but the next opportunity that I have to read this will I will clarify that item.
