Further down there is also mention of his 3 brothers: William Mead, Charles Mead and Jeremy Mead, who benefit after the death of "my dear wife" . Jeremy Mead also has a young son Michael who at the time of writing the will is less than 6 years of age.
His wife Sarah is appointed sole executrix.

Simon - a full will transcription is fairly time consuming. Why don't you have a go, leaving blanks for words that you can't get; then send us your effort in word (you can send it to me in a PM if you like) and I/we will complete it for you. Interpreting the old handwriting used is something you learn by practice of doing it - you may in the future need to do another one.
