Our subject probably had daughters who married; I would have to make a deeper attempt to read his will to identify them.

No legend was included, so we don't know the purpose of all the columns.  I did find that "M" equals "married."  Nicholas and Ann are the only CORBINs in the index.  Nicholas has a wall plaque while Ann has a floor plaque.

This will is extremely difficult to read.  I don't know when or if I'm going to plow through it entirely.  To begin with, he appears to be a very wealthy man, and his will runs to slightly more than five very packed pages.  I do see that he mentions daughters Ann and Sophia and sons William, George, and Frederick(?).  I didn't find mention of a wife, but I could easily be missing it.  The will appears to have been signed 1 Oct 1803 and was proved on 22 July 1805 in London.
