Oooh, I saw Martha's will listed on FMP and it said Apply to the RO for the doc. However, the will is on Ancestry....*starts reading*

lol Martha wrote her will in 1824, so she lists Ann as Ann Stevens. So, the 1826 marriage for Ann to John Saunders still works!

I think John Saunders is recorded on the grave of his mother-in-law, Ann Stephens, but it's a bit tricky to read.

Yes, it looks like John Saunders to me:

Thanks Kate. I suddenly realised it was probably him because the death was in April which was the first bit I could see!

Did Martha leave things to Ann AND HER HEIRS?

The death duty register just might provide those heirs, with the relationships.

Sadly not. She just divides part of her legacy between three nieces and if any should die, their share to be divided between the remainder.
