Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Will of Alexander Aylmer 1549

Here are two cases in Common Pleas in which Alexander Aylmer is the executor of Thomas Aylmer, of Tivetshall St Margaret. The relationship between them is not given.

Hilary term 1531
f 710
Suff. Christopher Jenney, of Great Cressyngham Magna, Norf, esq, summoned to answer Thomas Asty, clerk; and Alexander Aylmer, gent, executors of Thomas Aylmer, of Tybityshale, gent. Debt of 20 pounds.

Hilary term 1536
f 2364
Suff. William Aldred, of Denyngton, yeoman, summoned to answer Alexander Aylmer, gent, executor of Thomas Aylmer, of Tibytishale St Margaret, esq. Debt of 10 pounds.



It wouldn't make any difference how many people take the test or where they are from.
For the purpose of 'ethnicity', your test is not compared with other testers.

Who are they comparing with?

I have a question for someone more knowledgable than me.

How far back to these tests go? I mean that someone with entirely English ancestry might have ancestry from Norwegian and Danish Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, etc.

Another source that might be useful is the Bucks Record Society publications, many of which are available online:

For example the Ledger Book of High Wycombe:

There were people named Stevens, including one Joseph Stevens in 1664/5, though this is probably too early to be the same person. (Page 177, item 262)

This Joseph Stevens was a Quaker. Do you know if your Joseph Stevens was Quaker? This might be another line of research.

There's a will at Aylesbury for Joseph Stevens, blacksmith, of Lane End, West Wycombe, in 1732.

If that's him, it might have more information.

Have you looked at wills? The first ones here were proven locally, the second group are PCC (Prerogative Court of Canterbury).

Does this mean that Thomas Aylmer was dead by 1430? And that she had remarried Robert Huthom?

Yes to both questions.
