Wednesday 27 W for WILL.
Not everyone left a will, in times past, even today people die, ‘intestate,’ i.e. without a will. Wills are can be fascinating to read, with comments, appearing, like, ‘I leave nothing to my son Gerald, because he is a drunk and would squander it.” (My own thoughts.) Or listing every child, (wonderful), and how much each received. One of the wills, I have, states that if the widow re-marries, then the estate goes to the sons. This was usually to stop a second husband running of with the money, etc.
