Notes for Thomas ADKINS

25 Dec 1777 original gift of lease from Earl of Dorset to son Caleb.

Will of Thomas ADKINS, husband of Hannah DURHAM, the Giver, of Weston-upon-Avon. [8]

The two signatures written by Thomas on legal documents show that he was literate but that his hand was shaky and un-practiced. The first signature was appended under seal to his Will on the 15th September 1785. The second was to a codicil dated 5th May 1788 when he was already 94 or 95 and just a few months prior to his death. [Webmaster]
