This is a manuscript copy of the will and probate as extracted from the registry of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury. I can't tell when the copy was made, but I would guess Victorian. The condition of the paper makes it look older, but the handwriting is relatively modern. It has impressed duty stamps which might help to date it.

His property is left to his wife for her lifetime and then to his children. The property appears to consist of an unspecified number of houses in the parish of St Peter Hungate, Norwich.
