Buckinghamshire / Re: Mead, Meade and Mede, 1600 and before

For William Meade and George Meade of Monks Risborough, I went to Aylesbury to look at wills.

For William Meade, of Monks Risborough, yeoman, in 1610, there is only an inventory. He was quite well off, with goods and chattels worth £147 4d.

There is a will of George Meade of Monks Risborough, husbandman, in 1639/40. He mentioned:
Richard his son, (born Monks Risborough 1600)
Edday Bousay(?), with her son Richard
Alice (Alice Meade, of Whiteleafe, married 1628 to Stephen Clarke)
Margaret, (born Monks Risborough 1606)
Wife Katherine, (probably Katherine Clarke, married George Meade in Wendover, 1607)

Not mentioned:
John, (born in Whitleafe in Monks Risborough 1603, had children there 1625 to 1633)
William, (born Monks Risborough 1609)

Could these be the same people? Same names of testator and executor. It's 15 years later, in 1512, and at the beginning of the process, but sometimes it took that long to get started.

Hilary term 1512
Suffolk. Thomas Tevell and Robert Balhed, executors of Simon Broke, of Ufford, Suff, yeoman, versus Thomas Aylmer, of Shelley, Suff, esquire, executor of Roger Aylmer, of Tadyngton, Suff, esquire. Debt of 50 marks.

This is from the paragraph explaining extracted records:

The church has extracted records from various registers to produce indices to those registers, and used to process these indices through the temples and onto the I.G.I. as a result. The policy here was to only index registers for which no entry was dated later than 31st December 1865, although this wasn't always strictly followed. As a result, entries from this source (which currently account for about 83% of the entries in the I.G.I.) primarily relate to events occurring on or before this date.

There isn't a complete index of all parish records. Probably the most complete is the IGI (International Genealogical Index).

You can search:

Familysearch has both IGI batch numbers, which should be pretty accurate, and user-submitted files, which often are not.

To find out which IGI batch numbers are available, Google, for example: IGI batch numbers Devon.

Not all parish registers survive, particularly before 1600 and during the Civil Wars and Commonwealth. And some parish records exist but have not been indexed. Just one example is Henley on Thames, Oxon. The originals are at the County Record Office in Oxford and there are transcriptions in the library of the Society of Genealogists.

On edit: I see Selden has posted some of this above, so sorry for the repetition.

Here's an attempt at translating. I don't speak Danish, just a bit of Swedish.

Date of death and where
7 October, Lyngby, Rovidgatan 84

Burial place and date
Gentolfle Churchyard, 11 October

Deceased name
Peder Jensen

Deceased position and residence
Married (gift). Canít make our anything else except the date 8 March 1842 (date of birth?)

71 years



I think this line

of which praise the request is made

could be the name of the priest (praest) at the burial.

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?
