Where there’s a will there’s usually an argument

Local and family historian Sue Ellis will be giving us an insight into how to interpret wills. She explains where you can find them, what the stock phrases are, how you interpret the contents and what the mysterious word “admons” means.  She also looks at how the inventories of people’s possessions give us an invaluable insight into our ancestors’ lives and show how different they were from our own.
