Looking for a will from 1737

Surnames: Oliver, Charm, Tomkins
I was given a lot of information re my ancestors but unfortunately am not in contact with the original researcher,


attached to an Edward ap Oliver born 1655 is the following note

'a will for Edward Oliver tailor of Selattyn proved on 10/11/1737 probably refers to the above. Describes a son Thomas Oliver and insinuates that this Thomas lives away from Selattyn (also implies is probably unmarried) Mentions a daughter Sarah Tomkins (twice married) now wife of Peter Tomkins, several grandchildren and importantly leaves a small bequest to his brother Richard and his son Richard - the Richard shown at the end?? He also mentions something about his 2nd marraige. Unfortunately there are no baptisms at Selattyn for Thomas and Sarah and probably this suggests the family lived away, also they do not appear on the Bishops census for 1681 and 1686. However maybe the Elin baptised in 1696 daughter of Edward and Margaret is Edwards daughter from his 2nd marraige, named after his mother, and indicates a return to Selattyn'

Is there a way of obtaining the above mentioned will?

whilst searching for it I have found

1724 Aug. 11. Peter Tomkins, of Oswestry, & Sarah Charm, of this p. ... mar.

1737 Oct. 21. Old Edward Charm, alias Oliver ... bur.

so if the will really does relate to my Edward ap Oliver the above finds could also link in

thank you
Linda
