Hi Matt,
I was looking through the wills that I now have transcripts for but don't seem to be able to find one for the will of Thomas Ayssherst of Kingsnorth 1473/4. Yet, when I read through the will, I feel like I have read a transcript somewhere but can't find it. Do you have a transcript of this will? 

Did you have any success with the wills you were searching for?

Cheers, Gerelle

Hi Matt,
I've had some help from Horselydown and Bookbox on getting transcripts of a couple of the early latin Asherst wills (see under topic "Help with Ashert Wills"). I have just received the final parts of the transcript for Richard Essheherst of Kingsnorth's will 1464. You may want to have a read through that. It says that he has sons and daughters (unfortunately unamed) and a sister, who has a daughter, Alice Honywode. It also mentions Henry Assheherst (who I assume is his brother) and also mentions that lands came to him after the death of Thomas Hert (possibly his father-in-law). It also says that his wife is expecting another child, so all of his children must be fairly young and that is why they are not mentioned by name as heirs perhaps.

In the other version of his will 1463, he also mentions a Thomas Assherst. I suspect that one version of the will was written before his death which was imcomplete and the other after his death, but as they were both dated 18 May but a year apart, it is hard to say without a death or probate date.

Cheers, Gerelle.

Hi Matt,

Re: the will of John Essherst of Ashford 1512/1514
In one of my earlier posts, I asked if you had the probatum clause of this will. As I was looking back through your early posts I found where you had posted a copy of it, so thanks for that.
Gerelle.

Hi Matt,
Have been looking into your Alice Asherst who married Thomas Denne.
The information I found was that it was an Agnes Ashurst (born 1458 Kingston) daug of William Ashurst (born circa 1430) who married Thomas Denne (born 1455 Denne Hill, Kingston son of John Denne and Alice Arderne) circa 1480 and had children Avice 1488, Thomas 1489 and William 1495.

Don't know if this helps.
Gerelle.

Hi Again,

Sorry, missed the pedigree of Denne in Visitation of Kent 1619. So obviously, there was an Alice Eshehurst who married a Thomas Denne as well. Not sure if it is the same family as the Asshersts or not?

It certainly fits the time frame really well and it is possible that William Eshehurst (the father of Agnes Eshehurst) is a brother of Henry Essheherst, Richard Assheherst and Thomas Ayssherst. Hope you are getting these messages, as I haven't had any reply from you.
Cheers, Gerelle.
