I really appreciate this information.I didn't know that the Public Records Office had digitized some wills and made them available to download. I love this technology!I downloaded the will of Thomas Bainbridge and also that of a James Bainbridge of Knaresborough thinking there might be a connection since that's where my g grandfather was born.Turns out that James is the son of Thomas.It seems likely that they would be connected to my family but I wasn't able to discern any true link.
Have you come across the name Grace Bolt of Jamaica before?She is mentioned in their wills (mother of Thomas Bainbridge's children).
In trying to read the handwriting in the wills, I can understand how a Hogson might be recorded as a Hobson and vice versa.
Be sure to let me know if you come across any other leads - I'll do the same.
