I have largely transcribed the 1840 Will of my 4th great grandfather William Symons of Helston in Cornwall but there is one word which eludes me and it appears twice.
It looks to me like
etus and I have included two images of it and some surrounding words for context below.
I think this says "benefit for ever
etus I do appoint"
and I think this says "and forty now accounts annexed
(the "and forty" bit is the end of the year 1840 being spelled out and the next line starts "this deponent further made oath")
Is there a word (like)
etus that is likely to appear on an 1840 Will from Cornwall?
