Thank you Deborah,
It is a bit confusing, I wouldn't have noticed it, but I printed out what you sent then I e-mailed them to my father & he was the one that asked about it.
I got on to this site called A2A catalogue it is part of the pro gov site I thought if he had a farm then he may have left a will, there was a Jacob Thorne from South Moulton who had left a will in 1857 ( also on the Freebmd site I found a Jacob Thorne who had died in that same year & Place, same person ? ) but it turned out that he left everything to his other family & not to his children or wife, so I don't know if this is the right person but it also turns out that the woman who e-mailed me back that works there, said that she had some info on a marriage between Jacob & Maria Courtis, so yesterday my father sent a letter to them with a cheque.
So thank you for giving me all this information you have helped a lot.
