  • Wills (transcripts)
    The will of Thomas Efford Issell (1798 – 1874)
    The will of John's* great uncle, Thomas Efford Issell
    John was left a third of £50.
    This after the death of Thomas's wife, which occured in 1884, but John had emigrated to Canda before then so may not have received his inheritance.

    * - his uncle simply refers to him as Thomas Efford Issell, so maybe he was known as Thomas rather than John - it would have avoided confusion with his father
