I love this bit, it should be put into more wills.

Moreover, if any of my Children herein before named shall be dissatisfied and unpeaceable at this Distribution of my Property, I do hereby order that such dissatisfied Child or Children shall have no Share or Portion of the said Property or Money arising therefrom whatsoever.

It'll be the records office at Preston.

The date of death and the will date should be different. Do you have the date of death for the will you transcribed above?

The James Leaver mentioned in the Will, died 9 January 1828 at Extwistle Hall, so perhaps it is another James Leaver?

Maureen, do you have plans to visit the Lancashire records office? If so, can you have a look for this will? "Leaver James, Extwistle Burnley Farmer June 1828"

You will probably find the indexed entry in the Chester Probate Indexes. These are on the shelves near to the maps. Maybe it is worth making sure that the LRO have this first? They should be able to tell you by email, they will only need to check the index books.
