I was just given this old document by my grandmother. It is a document relating to a share of a Will in which her grandmother was mentioned (Emily Pynn nee Hughes). There are a few words I cannot make out which I have highlighted in Bold. I've had to cut it down to 2MB in size to be able to upload it. I have a much higher resolution scan if needed which I can send upon request.
I should also mention that the name Hunstad is mentioned on another document relating to a different will. Although that is a transcription so it could well be Hanstad.
What is the full transcription of this document?
My Transcription is as follows:
