NOTE: Original Will is very hard to read. Will fill in the gaps if and when I figure out what they are.
NOTE: On someone else's family tree website they had a note next to a reference to a will that mentioned the "Archibald Campbell Russell"... it said..... Archibald appears in a Southwark street directory of 1811 as a solicitor, in Lant Street, Borough. We know from the chancery case papers of Jesse Gouldsmith v Ann Luntley of 1870 that he acted for the Luntley family in marriage settlements and other legal documents, and that he advanced funds as a mortgage to Philip James Luntley.
