Elizabeth Cook, Her Will and Her Legatees: Part 3

 

Captain James Cook died in 1779.  His wife, Elizabeth, survived her husband by some 56 years, passing away on 13 May, 1835, at the age of 93.  In the first part of this article,1 I described how I came to transcribe her Will of over 7,000 words, and to research some of the legatees of the Will.  I then named and described the legatees in James Cook’s family, and some Unrelated Legatees.  In the second part of the article,2 I named and described the legatees in Elizabeth Cook’s family. 

 

In this, the third part, I shall provide a transcript of the Will (dated 8 April, 1833).  In the fourth part will appear the three codicils that followed the original Will.  In both the third and fourth parts, I shall link the people named to those who appear in the first two articles. 

 

To make it easier to read the transcript, I have created paragraphs, highlighted the names of the legatees, and added reference numbers pointing to a complete list of legatees in a separate section at the end.  Those legatees who do not appear in any of the previous articles are listed last.
