I ordered this will for Nanny Hayes who is buried in Briercliffe with Henry & Sarah Bannister (see here for the MI though her name appears more correctly as Nanny Heys)

Unfortunately for me, it's not my ancestor Nancy Heys, or my Henry & Sarah Bannister (though my Sarah was a Briercliffe girl) but I'm sure someone might find it of interest:
