Will of James Hingston of Holbeton (died 1756)

Much of what we know about James is contained in this will, but it not an easy document to read.

Because of its length, you will probably find it best to print it out, and a Word 6 formatted version, with explanatory appendices, is available (52k).

Let me know at email address andrew at amhinja dot demon dot co dot ukif you need it in another format.

If you prefer to view it on screen, I have provided a glossary, and summaries of:

the people mentioned;

the property;

the pattern of bequests.

For discussion of James and his family, and speculation about the significance of the bequests, see the main entry.
