I don't know who this Andrew is nor why, being a Laborer, he felt obliged to make a Will which talks about Stocks and Funds.  Perhaps he had "expectations"?  If you know anything about this family, please leave a message on the Message Board.

An Andrew WINGETT married an Elizabeth FORD on 31st January 1779 in the parish of Charles the Martyr, Plymouth.  I assume he is the Andrew above and also that he didn't have any children - or at least no surviving children since none are mentioned in the will.   The DFHS listing reports that there are additional notes on the original register entry but we don't yet know what these are.
