Latin Inquisition for John Bold 1544 at Widnes, Co. Lancaster-can anyone read it?
I just received this document from the Lancashire Archives. It is written in Latin and I can't read it. It is an inquisition for John Bold of Bold/Widnes in Lancashire in the year 1544. The second part of the inquisition shows the judges names, some of them are John Apleton, Thomas Lee, John Denton and others. On the 4th line in the second part under Inquisition you will see the name John Bold, gent. On the 7th line you will see _____ Bold de Bold. I can't read the first name. On the 8th line you will see the name John Bold (but no gent. after his name) and then on the 11th line you will see th name Ric Bold (Richard Bold). Inquisitions explain the land that belonged to the deceased, in this case John Bold, gentleman. It usually names the widow and then the heir, the oldest son and it sometimes will name the second son in default. I believe this John Bold died in 1540, but in the description of the doc on the Lancashire Archives website it shows the inquisition took place in 1544. Can anyone read this and tell me what it says? Thanks
