source. & Dina Broughton who writes:
Francis (the elder) made a will on the 27th October 1783 in which he left to his " dear and loving wife Ann Walduck ...my Messuages Cottages Lands Tenements and Hereditaments whatsoever situate in the Parish of Ashwell ." He signed his will with a cross. The will was proved at Baldock 18th November 1783 and Ann Walduck was sworn to the due Execution of the will. She "verely believes the Goods Chattels & credits of the deceased do not amount to the sum of one hundred pounds."
In 1804 Ann Walduck witnessed with her mark her own will in which she left to each of her sons (but interestingly not in the order of their birth) various properties in Ashwell. I am amazed that, as her husband Francis had only been a labourer, there was so much property in her possession to will to her children. There are seven separate properties (with their land and appurtenances). Another interesting thing is that sometimes she gives a property to one son that is occupied by another son. This is the transcript of her will.
