Connection to Olney-Hooker Family: William Merbury/Marbury, Esq. was the 8x Great-grandfather of Eliza Jane Olney through his son, the Reverend Francis Marbury, his grandson, John Scott, and his 3x great-grandson, Discovery Olney.
Below is a transcription of the will, as I have been able to make it out, formatted to make it easier to follow. Some spellings may not be letter for letter with the original; spell check can be a devil to avoid. A scan of the will is available for download from the British National Archives at: Will of William Merbury of Grimsby, Lincolnshire
Note: Though the British Archives lists the will this way, saying he was from Grimsby, the will itself says Grisbye, which I assume would now read Girsby. Girsby is a hamlet in the parish of Burgh on Bain, where the family held a manor. I am guessing William died in Girsby, not Grimsby.
