This is a transcript of the register copy of the will of Elizabeth Lambole (formerly Pool, maiden surname unknown) of Newbury in Berkshire. She was the widow of Richard Lambole, a barber and peruke (wig) maker of Kingsclere in Hampshire.

The will was written on the 25th of April 1814, about a year before Elizabeh was buried on the 18th of June 1815 at the age of 74 years. It was proved at London in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury on the 14th of August 1815. The register copy of the will is now catalogued with the Prerogative Court of Canterbury wills at The National Archives at Kew, Surrey, England.

Spelling and punctuation are as the register copy. Abbreviations have been expanded in square brackets. Capital 'f' has been transcribed as 'F' rather than 'ff'.
