    I have just found mention of a John Mitchell, Liverpool - 'Lancashire Wills & Probate 1457-1858' on FMP. Two dates for same named person 1790 & 1806 .
    Date 22 Feb 1790
    Occupation Mariner
    Place The Ship Fancy Liverpool
    Archdeaconry Chester
    County Cheshire, Lancashire, with a document ordering link, which left me none the wiser.
    Either of these person may be the 3rd Gt.G'Father I'm trying to 'approve of'. The first may lead to the correctness of a burial I have found for his possible widow in 1813.

    Can anyone please advise me on how to go about obtaining the first of these probate documents although I despair of it having any useful info.

    More likely I am to find info of deceased husband on widow's death but that again was before civil registration so probably no help.

    Slowly changing my mind as my chap's last child was born in 1797. :(
    So the way to go may be.....
    27 Jun 1806
    Occupation Mariner
    Place Liverpool
    Archdeaconry Chester
    Archive reference 631B/86

    Any help truly appreciated. :)

    not sure if this is real as the avatar is showing me as 'OFFLINE"

    Thank you so much Chimp, same again I get so far then no knowledge of such or words to that effect. I think they can just keep it. I see his name etc, but the next step dissolves into ' nah, don't 'ave that ere'.
