The three-page will is dated 25 January 1616, with January crossed out and replaced by March.
Due to new technical analysis of infrared rays and multispectral analysis, it has been concluded that the paper and ink of the three folio pages are not uniform, and page 2 (click details) were written with different paper and ink.-
In late March a small number of additions in a darker ink were squeezed (!) into the will at this point in time, including the change from January to March including the bequests of mourning rings to his friends [Heminge, Burbage & Condell s.Faksimile], and the [second-best] bed to his wife.
