  I am particularly pleased to place this document here on the web. It was one of the first
that I got hold of. It has taken me quite a while to get around to transcribing it. My copy
was typed by me and dated from the early 1990's when I didn't have a computer! The
original was written on a prepared printed sheet and the original printing is represented
in italics below. I have also maintained most of the original line formating.

It was this document that first encouraged me to contact people in the USA who had the
same surname as me (Vaugh) There are three people from the US and one from Australia
named in the will. I now know who they all were.  There are links to pictures of two of
them, the third Anna Vaugh owned the house where Lilly Vaugh lodged in the 1920's
you can see more information on the Census page.
