Working on the will of Sir Francis Blake, Baronet, Twizell Castle, Durham

This ten page will is now finished but I am working on the story of this family. It is a very interesting one as this is a Blake line with the male line going back to Menlough, Ireland. There is also a female Blake line (two cousins married) which goes back to the Blake family in the Pedigree Chart held by the Swindow and Wiltshire Record Office.

I spent part of the day extracting the extensive court record dealing with the inheritance of this estate as the will that I am working on was not probated for nearly 40 years.

I want to put together a partial family tree before I post the entire will.
