  This is another will that I have had for a considerable time. My Aunts from Bangor requested a copy of Wilton Vaugh's will, when this arrived there was a note asking if they would also like a copy of this one as well. The rest as they say is history. Using this will in conjunction with several of the deeds, also available via this site, many family links were made.
