I hope everyone's keeping well
I've traced back with parish records and wills to my direct ancestor John BAILEY (yeoman) of Pickstock, Edgmond buried 17 Jan 1698 Edgmond.
His will dated Nov 1697:
John mentions his daughter Alice PARTON wife of Thomas (my direct ancestors) and Thomas son in law is one of the wills overseers. In John's will, he leaves £ 554-10-00 (including debts owed but no names were given). His son and wife Margaret are the named execs' and John signs the will.
He mentions some land and property in Wordley's in Pickstocke and another property that he now dwells in (Pickstocke), He also donates monies to the poor of Edgmond, Adney, Calventon? and Pickstocke.
I've been unable to find any marriage entry in the parish records online for John & Margaret but did I believe find the bapt' entry for their daughter Alice BAILEY (source FamilySearch):
Bapt 2 Jan 1663: Alice daughter of John & Margt' BAILEY
Does anyone have any further information on the BAYLEY family living around Edgmond and the Margaret who John married?
Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated in tracing this family further back. Is this family known to anyone else?
