City of Norfolk Wills 90% or better intact, as there was not as much "In the name of the" in this book and very few had in the year of our lord

the appraisements, sales and audits however ARE ABSTRACTED.


This book had a period of time where the court clerk, either had a stroke or was ill and had a substitute
write the book for several months, and it was during this time that not only had the hand writing changed (aka the reason I think there was a substitute) but the person could not spell. Therefore there are 3 wills where the wills have been transcribed by how they "sounded" when read outloud rather than how they actually read.

Example, 

All so was changed to also

cald was changed to called

cartings was changed to curtains

cashin  was changed to cushions, 


There is one will in French, thankful translated and transcribed by Donald Moore

And one spanish will transcribed only by JOSE ROMAN GONZALEZ LOPEZ

and the translation done by Google, and slightly fixed by me so that the sentences made sense.

HOWEVER, something changed in 1855 maybe due to the yellow fever epidemic or for whatever reasons,
the will book changes, and mostly contains just wills after this point, and it annoyed me so much, that I have included
points of reference in the book where you can find more information on a certain person in the following two books:
Inventories, Appraisements and Accounts No 1, 1850-1856 and Inventories, Appraisements and Accounts No. 2 1856-1875.
