Re Inquisitions post mortem.
Please could someone shed light on the role of Trustees per the following IPM below.
What are the duties of Trustees?
Why was the Trusteeship passed down the Peck family for several generations?
What does having the role of trustee tell us about the Peck family?
What does the Peck trusteeship tell us about the nature of their relationship to Sayvile?
What other genealogical and social nuggets can we glean from this IPM regarding the Peck family?
So many questions - sorry and thank you.
