Hi Rupert,

Do any of the letters of Charlotte's surname or her husband's first name appear in same in any part of the document?? It is possible to work it out from that, it's difficult without seeing the whole document.

Thanks everyone for your help.

I doubt anyone would believe me if I said the husbands name now looks like
Kenneth Macdonald

Look at the (n) one & (d) thousand pounds

check here to see Will

Name: James Lockhart Esquire
Probate Date: 1 Dec 1814
Residence: Sherfield House, Hampshire, England


No sign of a marriage for a Kenneth Macdonald to Charlotte Lockhart 1841-1852 (wondering now was it in Scotland)

thanks
