The mark of X MARY HITCHES signed sealed declared and published by the above named MARY HITCHES as and for her last Will and Testament in the presence of us who in her presence and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names as Witnesses – WM HOLMES Great James St Middlesex - ANN MARIA ELLEN HATCH Walton - JN NEWTON Walton Surrey
The Will erroneously states that Walton is in the county of Middlesex whereas it is in the county of SurreyA reference is made to "Peter Giles". I believe this should read the aforementioned "Ephraim Giles"
