The postings under the name francoso are not from me but are the work of someone interested in the families of Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex but who is a retiring sort of person. I am just the Postman.

Thank you so much, Goldie!!! :) :D :) This will continues to be pure gold! There we have Bridgit/Brigett! :) :) :)

And 'my dowghter Thetfourth'!!!

For an embarrassingly long while there, I thought, 'That's a strange Christian name'. *facepalm*

Of course, he must be talking about his daughter Frances again!

Frances Aylmer, daughter of Alexander Aylmer of Tanington in Suffolk, married to Christopher Thetford of Titleshall in Norfolk.
https://archive.org/stream/visitacionievisi32ryew#page/280/search/Aylmer
https://archive.org/stream/visitationoflond17howa#page/n289/search/Thetford

(Let me know if you think I am being hideously wrong about that.)

This would mean that Frances Aylmer the Younger would have to have been a little bit older than I had previously assumed, if she were already married in 1549.

But, of course, she could have been 10-12 in 1540 when Frances Aylmer the Elder wrote about her in her will and mentioned her bringing-up, and still have been a child.

A birth year of 1528 would have made her 21 in 1549, for example.

Of course, it is a bit odd that the testator first refers to her by her Christian name of Frances, and then as 'his daughter Thetford', and without pointing out the connection between the two, but hey, that could just be how these people rolled.

We are definitely on the right track here :) This is very exciting!

'Tatyngton' - I believe this is another spelling of Tannington - specific perhaps to this time and place, or even to this particular family, because it keeps cropping up in connection with them, and often interchangeably with people described as being of or from Tannington.

This is very intriguing! I think you are right about that being Judge John Baldwin, Goldie, but what in the world could the fine(?) have been about?

Thank you so much again, Goldie :) :) :) This is really fun! I do so love seeing our theories confirmed :) :D :)

Thank you so much to the both of you again! (To the retiring sort of person for the research, and to you for posting :) )

The wills of widows, especially remarried widows, are often of particular interest, because they are very concerned about willing things to their children and often mentions loads of grandchildren too.

I found the referral number on Ancestry, so I think we will be able to take a closer look at Joane! :) :D :)

Snippets 7 & 8 "And I will my daughter Thetfourth ... ". Is this the married name of the daughter ? Is it meant to be the Thetforth family ? This family seems to have been around West Herling (West Harling), Snitterton (Snetterton), and Thetford.

Of course, I may be totally off the track !
