  1. Will of Lockhart Russell Major of Southampton [made in 1797] proved 13/02/1798. Under the will he left his [unnamed] estates in Antigua in trust for his wife Rachel Russell for life and then to Francis Russell of Black Hall North Britain, later in the will identified as Lockhart Russell's nephew, requesting that the survivor of the two then bestow them upon Francis' son, also called Lockhart Russell.
