Had a quick look at Francis 1781 Will, Yeoman of Woodside - he just mentions, a couple of names including his sister Hannah BRADLEY, (Niece -Hannah BRADLEY, 4 large Pewer Dishers & Plates, 1 Oak Table) & Nephew, Richard Bradley - £50) + Brother-in-law John BRADLEY -

(buried at Ruardean - 11 April 1781 - listed as a Bachelor)

Hannah MEEK married John BRADLEY - 14 October 1753 - at Gloucester Cathedral (Fod records)


also Nephew : Joseph, coalminer of Ruardean, son of my brother John left him 1 shilling.


(I thought the writing said NOOKE, but it appears to be MEEK, the writer does his "e's" like "o's"

Mentions a Stephen YEMM? his friend

The 1727 Francis MEEK - wife Margaret - Will is signed, Frances MEEKE (Senior)

Hope this helps.
