Hi again

thanks for the information about the house - this house is next door to mine - it has been split into three houses: The Birches, Waterloo and Church House. They will appreciate the description.

I have the will for Margaret Pytt - I didn't know that she ended up in Bristol - or bout living in the Great House - is this in Usk?

here is the transcript of Margaret Pytt's will -- btw - do you know anything about Edward Bowyer??? He is a nephew of Margaret Pytt's and I have been trying to locate information about him.

Many thanks for your info. cheryl
