Will of John Billingham Bpt: 4 Jan 1778 - 25 March 1856

Postby Waltzer7 » Thu May 30, 2019 1:19 pm

I have come across the last will and testament of John Billingham of Cradley estate in the parish of Rowley Regis in the County of Staffordshire, which I have tried to decipher but it is very hard to read the squiggly writing plus some letters have faded in parts. But I believe this links to John Billingham on this link:-

It was very hard to decipher John's wife's name but I believe it is Phoebe plus I can make out the names of his children, listed below and their spouses: -

Thomas Billingham
Benjamin Billingham
Joseph Billingham
Elizabeth the wife of Charles Thomas
John Billingham
Nancy the wife of Jabez Adams (my 3rd great, grand parents)
Selena the wife of Jeremiah Billingham

Daughter Mary Foley, grandson Edward Bailey, a child of the said Mary Foley by her previous husband
Sarah of the said Samuel Smith....

I have tried uploading the saved will but it is far too big so am enclosing the link to it: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interactive/ ... dit/record

It would be great if someone on here could check this out and add to BCCTribalpages under John Billingham?

Unfortunately the link takes you to the ancestry page where you have to be a member
And we wouldn't,t be able to write out the whole will
I will try and put something in notes but not time to add a great deal

Will move this to the people's info section and attach a link
