    Default Will translation help for Will dated 1824

    Hi,

    I am hoping there is someone out there who can help me with translating one sentence of the above dated Will. I have transcribed the rest, but am really struggling to find the words that would make a little sense.
    'situate at Peckham Rye in the County of Surrey unto my said wife Mary Pearce and her assigns during the term of her natural life She my said wife during so course?? of the term to caule?? and unexpired?? at the time of my death in?? my said leasehold premises as she shall live paying the rent and performing the convenants reserved and contained in the lease'

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It's a little small to read. Perhaps you can either link to an external site (see this thread) or give us the name of the person who made the will so that those of us who have access to the original via Ancestry or The Genealogist can take a look.

    Hello Sue,

    Yes, sorry I did think it was a little small. The Photo link didn't seem to work so the details for the original are:

    Will of William Pearce died 1824 Swithins Lane, London. I do hope this will help. By the way, thank you for mentioning the Wills on Ancestry, I have ben paying the usual 3.50 to have them downloaded from the NA.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Not happy with 'run' but couldn't think what else went with lease!

    "during so long of the term to come" - how about that? The first letter definitely looks like an old fashioned "c" to me and I have seen that phraseology, or something similar, in some of my ancestor's wills.
