Would someone be so good as to transcribe or send me the gist of the probate act of John Pickering of Oswaldkirk (see link below)? I have circumstantial evidence that he's the link I've been looking for to connect my family to one of the medieval Pickering families. Frustratingly, it appears that he died young and suddenly without making a will, so it's possible that the probate act doesn't reveal much.
John was born before 1509 (father's death), he married Jane Percehay, who died before 1583 (dispute over inheritance), and the probate act is dated 5 November 1521.
Thanks a lot!
