Transcriber's and Editor's Notes
No probate note available -- date taken from ORO Index.
Daughter Winifred is a problem. Her surname is not given, but she has been married twice.
The following details are believed to be true but should not be totally relied upon:
She was a servant of George WHITTON (1606 qv), by whom she had three children including John (1643 qv)
John's "illegible" second wife was Hester nee BLUNT.
