The following is an extract from The_Gentleman_s_Magazine_London_England_Vol_149 which is in the public domain.

Can anyone find any information about the Le Bole / Le Boles family? I am really struggling and would appreciate any thoughts

He (John Coket) obtained a licence from the Crown to found a perpetual chantry of one priest to Celebrate every day at the altar of the blessed Virgin, in a chapel annexed to the parish church of Ampton for the good estate of the King, and Elizabeth his Queen, Edward Prince of Wales, and Richard Duke of York, Earl Marshal, and of John Coket and Alice his wife and their heirs, and for their souls after their decease, and for the souls of their parents, benefactors, and of the faithful departed ; the said chantry to be called John Coket's Chantry, and he endowed it with lands of the annual value of ten marks, and gave the officiating priest a dwelling house opposite the church of Ampton, with a garden adjoining. The Royal licence bears date the 12th of March, in the eighteenth of King Edward IV.

He married Alice, daughter and heiress of Richard le Bole, and Margaret his wife, from whom he inherited the patrimonial estate of the le Boles in this parish, on which their ancestors had resided since the time of Edward the First. By her he had issue an only son and heir, John, and two daughters, Agnes, who married John Abthorpe, and Alice, who married Hamon Claxton, Sheriff of Norwich in 1476, and in 1485 Mayor of that city.

John Coket, esq. died about the second of Richard the Third, leaving John, his son and heir, who married and had issue two sons, John, of whom hereafter, and Thomas, who inherited the lordship of Dunham Parva, and presented to that rectory in 1511, but sold the said manor and advowson soon after.
