This is a most interesting series of wills. I love the way they switch from the transfer of property of enormous value (Ewood was a lovely Hall) to the everyday. So in the will of James Farrer we have the best horse being given to William Farrer who also gets 2 items of plate, the Unicorn and the Tumbler. The mention of the Deer Park is interesting too. His wife can kill deer but must maintain a herd of 12 (or is that 12 pairs .) The analyses of these wills are excellent but there is so much in any will which is of interest.  In William Farrer's will of 1722 it mentions  'All the furniture and money due to me from my cozen James deceased to pay off his debts.' James' widow inherits from William all the timber in a barn. I hope that is worth more than the money and furniture she is losing, but probably not.
