Essex / Re: QUILTER - Essex-Kent link
« on: Thursday 02 July 20 06:50 BST (UK)  »
I just came across this in Common Pleas records, Margaret Quylter of Stebbing, widow, in 1566.
1566 Hilary term, file 1250/fronts 110
Essex. Margaret Quylter, widow, of Stebbyng, Essex, versus John Pratt, of Parva/Little Dunmowe, yeoman. Debt of 20 pounds.

I wonder if this might be Margaret Quilter of High Easter. Her original will was made in 1558, but no date of probate is given.

In Seax:
Will made 28 November 1558. Date of probate not given

So it's possible that she made a will in 1558 but lived for years afterwards. Stebbing is a mile or two from Dunmow and about three miles from High Easter. There is no image available of Margaret Quilter's will. I don't think it's possible to get photocopies now while the archives are closed.

Here is another record of Quilter in High Easter, from the records of the Duchy of Lancaster, Ducatus Lancastriae, page 381

Date: 12 Eliz (1569-70)
Plaintiffs: Thomas Quilter son of Henry Quilter, with the Queen
Defendants: Thomas Quilter and George Quilter, sons of John Quilter
Premises in dispute: Lands, namely Caleys or Creleys, and other specified lands.
Place and county: High Ester, Essex

It is probably connected with this record in TNA:
DL 4/6/13 (Duchy of Lancaster)
Short title: Quylter v Quylter.
Plaintiffs: Quylter. 
Defendants: Quylter.
Documents: depositions concerning High Easter, Essex.
6 Eliz. 1563-1564

So I'd guess that your Thomas Quilter came from High Easter, the son of either Henry or John.

I can't give a full genealogy, but there were people named Quilter living in that area for a long time. For example in Aythrop Roding and High Easter, which are just a few miles away. These are from the Court of Common Pleas:

1381 Michaelmas
Essex. Edward de Benstede versus Thomas Styward, of High Easter; John Tannere, of Great Dunmowe; John Quilter, of Aythrop Rothyng. Debt.

1415 Trinity
Essex. John Kyng, junior, of High Ongre versus Richard Dygon, of Wylkynghale Rokell, fuller; Reginald Quylter, of Wylkynghale Rokell (Willingale?), husbandman; John Humfrey, of Writell, husbandman; Seek, John, of Brendewode, ostler. Debt.

1483 Hillary
Robert Ultyng versus John Quylter, of High Easter, husbandman. Debt.

1512 Hilary
Essex. John Vyntener, abbot of St Osithe Abbey versus William Coope, of St Osithe, barker; John Cootys,of Stannewey, yeoman; John Quylter, of Copforde, husbandman; Ralph Tothe, of St Osithe, shoemaker. Debt.

1544 Hilary
Essex. Henry Creke, versus John Quylter, of Mount (Bures?), husbandman. Debt.

There is also a will of Margaret Quilter of High Easter in 1558.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Elizabeth Rowland 1686

These are the children of Robert Rowland born in Upottery, batch number C052061. If this is the same person throughout, he would have been 33 when his first child was born. There are two gaps, 1668 to 1673 and 1676 to 1682, so he might have been married 2 or 3 times.

1666 Mary Rowland daughter of Robert
1668 Samuel Rowland son of Robert
1673 Joan Rowland daughter of Robert
1676 Robert Rowland son of Robert
1682 Stephen Rowland son of Robert
1686 Elizabeth Rowland daughter of Robert
1688 Joseph Rowland son of Robert

The first three letters look like Dru-, then possibly a c. Druc. Could that be an alternate, slightly abbreviated form of Drugo or Drew?

Wouldn't 3% be 1/32? That would be your great great great grandparents.

Oxfordshire / Re: Hensington???
« on: Wednesday 13 May 20 14:54 BST (UK)  »
I just came upon Hensington in a case in Common Pleas in Easter Term 1565.

A memorandum that John Meade came to the Court and gave information against George Whytton, esquire, concerning 27.5 acres of arable land and 6 acres of pasture in some fields in Hensyngton called Hordley alias Hensyngton Hyll & le Bank alias le Hyd.

John Meade was an innkeeper in Woodstock, at the sign of the George.
