amount ie over about £2,000 there may be taxation records at the PRO. If
they exist the document will state the relationship between the testator and
the legatee. There may also be other interesting information not on the

abstract of a will from the Records office in Haverfordwest which has one
my ancestors named as granddaughter to the deceased. I ordered the
which is beautifully written and perfectly legible, but I have read it

something or could the abstract be wrong? Is there an order in which
relatives are listed which would indicated what the relationship was?
