There is little need, in this the second volume of a series of Tudor 
Inquisitions, to emphasise the supreme importance of these Records to 
the genealogist, the historian and topographer, for that has already been 
done, with conspicuous success, in the Introduction to the previous 
volume, edited in 1896 by Mr. G. S. Fry. It is only necessarj' to refer, 
therefore, by way of Preface, to certain noteworthy features to be found 
within the following pages. 

The present volume contains complete abstracts of Inquisitiones post 
mortem for the City of London during the years 4 to ig of the reign of 
Queen Elizabeth, the entire period so far covered in the series being that 
from 1485 to 1577. A considerable portion of the remaining twenty-six 
years will appear in the "Index Library" during 1902, and the usual 
thorough Indexes, Nominum et Locorum, will be published as soon as 
the last Inquisitions of the Tudor Period issue from the press. This is 
believed to be the better course to follow, for it has the advantage not 
only of hastening forward the completion of work now well in hand, 
thus preventing the annoyance of a prolonged pause (due no less to pub- 
lication than to preparation of the periodic index), but also of avoiding 
an undue multiplicity of indexes. 

The abstracts of Inquisitiones post mortem here printed are taken 
from the Chancery Series for the reign of Elizabeth preserved at the 
Public Record Office ; and since the original documents are in Latin — 
their decipherment, on account of age and condition, being at times a 
source of perplexity even to the practised eye of the expert — the great 
advantage of these readable English abstracts will neither be denied by 
the critic nor fail to meet with very general approval. They supply, 
moreover, all the information contained in the originals, and for all 
practical purposes are the Inquisitions themselves, shorn of their pro- 
voking verbiage. Where necessary, they have been collated with the 
transcripts returned either into the Court of Exchequer or the Court of 
Wards and Liveries. For this and other good work much praise is due 
to Miss Walford.

vi City of London Chancery Inquisitions. 

Inquisitiones post mortem to the number of 175 are here recorded, 
an average for each year of eleven. In six cases the jury made an 
insufficient or inaccurate return, causing the writ ad melius inquirendum 
to be directed to the escheator for the holding of a second inquest to 
ascertain omitted facts. Although the jurors were usually summoned to 
meet the Mayor, as escheator, at the Guildhall, on one occasion (17th 
Jan., 1571) they appeared before two commissioners at "the inn called 
the Castell without the bars of Westsmithefeild in St. John's Street 
near the City of London " ; and twice in the year 1573 the inquests 
were held before the Auditor-General of the Court of Wards and Liveries. 
The various references to the " Statute of Uses " ; the numerous Wills 
(which are in English), Charters, Deeds, Indentures and Fines ; the 
account of "Crosby's Hall " in 1576 (page 199); the long list of City 
Craft-Gilds, and the curious place-names constantly occurring — are all 
of the highest interest and value. The Inquisition of Samuel Cox, gent., 
belongs to those known as proofs of age, probatio etntis, and records 
amongst other things his baptism on March 4th, 1549, at the church of 
" the Blessed Mary of Bow Arcubus " in the City of London. There are 
four enquiries concerning the property of lunatics and idiots, two of 
them relating to a single family (Julius and Alexander Augustine, 1565 
and 1574). 

Among the Inquisitiones post mortem occur the names of two 
Earls of Wiltshire (1572 and 1577), four Knights (Cholmeley, Hewett, 
Throkmorton, and White), two Merchants (Nicholas de Nale and Jn. 
Jakes), as many Clerks (Sir Jn. Deane and Thos. Allen), a Writer of 
Courthand (Jn. Lee), and five Aldermen (Sir Thos. White, 1568 ; Robert 
Hardinge, 1569; Hy. Becher, 1571 ; Hy. Milles, 1574, and Wm. Bonde, 
1576). Richard Langham (1567) is the first of the thirty-seven citizens 
recorded. In addition to these it is worthy of mention that the list in- 
cludes twenty-three "Gentlemen," twelve '"Esquires," eight widows, 
seven clothworkers, four grocers and butchers, three mercers, two 
merchant-tailors, haberdashers and girdlers, and a single cutler, cook, 
innholder, goldsmith, brewer, skinner, saddler, Salter, baker, tallow- 
chandler, broiderer, pewterer, dyer, blacksmith, bowyer, and leather- 
seller.

Inquisition taken at the Guildhall, 14th August, 4 Eliz. [1562], 
before William Harper, knight, mayor and escheator, after the 
death of George Artnerer, citizen and brewer of London, by the oath 
of Thomas Lytton, William Gyhbons, Henry Sutton, John Kcylc, 
Richard Henman, John Wytton, Henry Calyce, William Mosyer, 
Thomas Dewxell, Robert Diinkyns, William Hardinge, Michael Smyth, 
William Smyth, George Cabell, Robert Lee, Robert Davye,' Stephen

Long before the death of the said George Armerer, Rowland

wherein he then dwelt, situate in Smythfeld, in the parish of St. 
Sepulchre, in the suburbs of London, between the tenement called the 
George on the west and the highway in Smythfeld on the south and 
east, and the tenement belonging to the Church of St. Sepulchre on 
the north. 

So seised, the said Rowland by deed dated 14th April, 7 Edw. 
VI [1553], granted the said messuage to the said George Armerer and 
his heirs for ever after the death of the said Rowland Tweddell and

daughter and heir of Edward Saiaiders, citizen and leatherseller of 
London, deceased, were seised of the stable with the loft built over 
it, late in the tenure oi J^ohn Shelley, situate in Longlane in the parish 
of St. Sepulchre without Newgate, in the suburbs of London. 

So seised, the said Edward and Joan by charter dated 27th August, 
2 and 3 Philip and Mary [1555], for the sum of £15 to them in hand 
paid, granted the said stable and loft to the said George Armerer and 
his heirs for ever. 

The said George Armerer afterwards built a mansion house wherein 
Richard Spencer, joiner, now lives. 

The said King Philip and Queen Mary by Letters Patent dated 6th 
May, in the 2nd and 3rd years of their reigns, recited inter alia that 
the said George Armerer had bought the said stable and loft which 
were held of the said King and Queen in chief, without obtaining their 
licence, but that upon payment of 265. Sd. into the hanaper they had 
pardoned his said trespass. 

Afterwards, to wit, on the 29th day of November, 1561, the said 
George Armerer made his will as follows [part given in English]: 
I will that Kateryne my wife shall have the use of my ipessuage in 
Longlane until my son William shall attain the age of 21 years, at 
which time the same shall descend to him and his heirs for ever ; for 
default, the same to come to all my daughters, to be divided equally 
amongst them ; to hold to them and their heirs for ever ; for default, 
the same to remain to my heirs for ever. Further, I bequeath to the 
said William my messuage in West Smithfield, sometime in the tenure 
of Rowland Tweddell, and now in that of Cutberte Maye, to hold to 
him and to the heirs of his body begotten for ever, with remainders, for 
default, as above. 

The said premises are held of the Queen in chief by the service of 
the 40th part of a knight's fee, and are worth per annum, clear 405. 

George Armerer died on the vigil of the feast of the Epiphany, being 
the 5th day of January, 4 Eliz. [1562], in the parish of St. Sepulchre ; 
William Armerer is his son and next heir, and was then aged 9 years 
and 7 weeks. 

The said Katherine late the wife of the sa.\d'George still survives. 

The said Alice Tweddell has taken the profits of the said tenement 
bought of the said Rowland Tweddell up to the present time.

Inquisitiones Post Mortem for London. 



Inquisition taken at the Guildhall, 14th August, 4 Eliz. [1562], 
before Williatn Harper, knight, mayor and escheator, after the 
death of Magdalene Price, late the wife of Thomas Collye, deceased, 
by the oath of Thomas Lytton, William Gybhons, Henry Sutton, John 
Keyle, Richard Henman, John Wytton, Henry Callyce, William 
Mosyer, Thomas Dewxell, Robert Dunkyns, William Hardynge, 
Michael Smyth, William Smyth, George Cabell, Robert Lee, Robert 
Davye, Stephen Walden, Robert Langwith and William Swayneson, 
who say that 

Long before the death of the said Magdalene Pryce, one Thomas- 
Collye, now deceased, was seised of i messuage, i yard and i parcel of 
waste land, and i house and garden to the said messuage adjoining, 
late in the tenure of George Kyng, citizen and woodcarver of London, 
situate in the street commonly called Sylverstrete, sometime belonging 
to the late Priory of Christ Church, London. 

So seised, the said Thomas built on the said piece of waste land a 
small tenement wherein he dwelt, and g stables. 

The said Thomas Collye was likewise seised of 2 messuages and 
tenements lying in the parish of St. Olave, commonly called Seynte 
Towles parish in Sylverstrete, sometime belonging to the late Monastery 
or Priory of Holy Trinity, commonly called Christ Church, London, 
and late in the several tenures of William Raynham and Owen Graner, 
which said premises the said Thomas Collye lately purchased to him 
and his heirs for ever of the gift of jfohn Aylyff of London, esq., as in

parish of St. Olave in Sylverstrete, late in the tenure of William 
Northeriche, which the said Thomas purchased to him and his heirs

INTRODUCTION. 



This volume, the twenty-seventh issued in the Index Library, 
gives references to upwards of 20,000 Leicestershire Wills and 
Administrations registered in the Court of the Archdeacon of 
Leicester between 1495 and 1649, and some 2,500 testamentary 
dispositions registered in the several ' Peculiar ' Courts within the 
same county prior to 1801 ; the whole of the records referred to 
being now preserved in the Probate Registry at Leicester. 

The calendars here printed for the first time have been compiled 
from two sources, namely, from the official Indexes as far as they 
exist, and where it was found that the latter were intricate or 
wanting, from the records themselves, in order to make the volume 
as complete as possible for the period it covers. 

The jurisdiction of the Court of the Archdeacon of Leicester 
was confined to the whole county of Leicester, which until 1837 
was included within the great see of Lincoln. The exact 
date when the Archdeacons of Leicester began to claim their 
testamentary jurisdiction is not clearly known, but it is evident, 
from records extant, that as far back as the reign of Edward III, 
if not earlier, they exercised their right to issue grants. We learn 
from the Woodford Cartulary in the British Museum that the 
WM of Alice Woodford of Brentingby, co. Leicester, was proved 
before the official of the Archdeacon of Leicester in the church of 
Melton Mowbray, 13 kal. January, 1333, and that probate of the 
Will of Sir John de Wodeford of Brentingby was granted by 
1 * 6 



VI INTRODUCTION. 

the same authority in St. Martin's Church, Leicester, 27th August, 
1401. No records, however, of this early date now exist. 

The Court was formerly governed by a Commissary and Official, 
who was appointed by the Bishop of Lincoln, and who exercised 
the authority of Official Principal and Vicar General under the 
Archdeacon. Occasionally these offices were vested in two persons 
who held separate Courts and exercised concurrent jurisdiction. 
During inhibition the Court was held by the Bishop of the diocese 
or his Chancellor. The Registrar of the Court was appointed by 
the Bishop. 

It will be convenient to give here some particulars of the 
records extant in the Registry and of the Calendars or Indexes 
and Register Books of Wills, etc., now in use..

An original sixteenth-century Index to Wills proved between 
about 1500 and 1558 is still preserved, which contains the names 
of several hundred testators, whose records no longer exist ; also 
there is a defective Index to the earliest Administrations prior to 
1594, many of the Bonds for which are now missing. There is 
also preserved an Index to a number of Wills and Administrations 
which for various reasons were not proved or completed. An 
alphabetical list of such records from the earliest, 1576, to 1800 has 
been prepared and printed at the end of this volume {vide p. 237). 



INTRODUCTION. 



Vll 



II. Wills. 

These for convenience may be grouped into three classes, 
namely : (i) loose transcripts, (2) originals, and (3) registered copies 
in books. The earliest separate testamentary records extant in the 
Registry consist of transcripts of Wills, there being very few, if any, 
originals earlier than 1580. These transcripts, which number 
upwards of three thousand, may be said to commence in the year 
1500, although one at least exists of an earlier date. A small 
packet is preserved containing twenty-five transcripts of the 
fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the dates of which are wanting 
or imperfect. One of these, viz., the Will of Alys Multon, widow, 
of Wymondham, is dated 15th May (year obliterated), Edward IV, 
circa 1480. The transcripts are now placed in bundles for different 
periods, each year being tied up separately : —

From L580 to 17 11 inclusive, the original Wills and Transcripts 
are filed in rolls, and after 1712 they are much better arranged 
with the Administrations in bundles alphabetically for each year. 
The series is tolerably complete from 1580, with the exception of 
the roll for 1608, which is lost, and the usual gap between 
1649 and 1660, when the episcopal jurisdiction over Wills was 
suspended and all Wills were proved in London. For further 
details respecting the Transcripts and original Wills the reader 
is referred to pp. 17, 40, and 63. 



viii INTRODUCTION. 

III. Register Books. 

In addition to the Transcripts and original Wills, there exist 
a number of Register Books containing copies of Wills for the 
following years : — 



15 15-1526, partly index( 


2d. 






1 526-1 533, not indexed.

1572 


1576 




1565 1569 


1573 


1577 





Separate Books for each of these years with old indexes. Some 
important details concerning these Register Books will be found 
prefixed on pp. 1,13, and 46. 

There are also Register Books containing copies of Wills, 
without indexes, for these years : — 

1587 1589 1607 1611 

1588 1606 1608 1639 

The Wills for part of the year 1626, and from 1627 to 1631 
inclusive, are also copied into three Register Books for which 
indexes exist A few original Wills are bound up in these 
volumes. From 1749 to the present time a regular series of 
Register Books of Wills are preserved. The earliest Will in the 
first Register Book (15 15-1526) is that of John Penny, of 
Leicester, which bears date 24th March, 1495. 

IV. Administrations. 

The earliest Administration Bonds commence in 1556, but are 
by no means so complete as the Wills, and not regularly indexed 
until 1594. For the first time the earlier Bonds, hitherto deposited 
away in mixed bundles, have recently been arranged, and an Index 
of both the existing and missing records prepared. This is fully 
printed in this volume (see p. 152, where further details are 
given). It is a matter of regret that so many of these Bonds are 
altogether missing, but fortunately the Act Books which commence 
in 1604 help to make up somewhat for the deficiency. It will 



INTRODUCTION. IX 

be observed that between 1620 and 1649 a number of Seques- 
tration Bonds, relating to ecclesiastical preferments and other 
matters, are mentioned. Many of these are also missing, but the 
Act Books give some particulars concerning them. 

V. Inventories. 

These records, which give us some insight into the domestic 
habits and position of our forefathers, commence about 1520. The 
earlier Inventories will be found generally attached to the Wills or 
Bonds, and there are good indexes to them from 1585 to 1711. 

VI. Act Books. 

The earliest is a fragment or part of the Probate and Adminis- 
tration Act Book for the year 1526. About 120 names are given, 
the records for many of which are now missing. 

Probate Act Books are preserved for the following years : — 

1585 and 1586, very imperfect. 
1 604- 1 644, inclusive. ^ 
1 645-1 649 „ r ^ Books. 

I 678- I 688 „ j 

Administration Act Books exist for the years 
1 604- 1 63 5, inclusive. 
1635-1645 „ y s Books. 

1678-1689 

VII. Peculiar Courts. 

It will be necessary to give a list here of the several minor 
Courts, the records of which are now deposited separately in the 
Registry at Leicester, the calendars being printed for the first time 
in this volume, with the date of earliest records : — 

1. The Prebendal Court of St. Margaret, Leicester, 1543. 

2. The Manorial Court of Rothley, 1575. 

3. The Manorial Court of Groby, 1580. 

4. The Manorial Court of Evington, 1581. 

Further details respecting these Courts will be found on pp. 205, 
217, 227, and 235. 



X INTRODUCTION. 

Although the present volume deals with the bulk of Leicester- 
shire Wills and Administrations between 1495 and 1649, it should 
be remembered that there are other depositories where Leicester- 
shire records for the same period, and even earlier, may be found. 
As many Leicestershire Wills were proved in the Prerogative 
Court of Canterbury, search also should be made in the Calendars 
at Somerset House, London. These Calendars, which commence 
in 1383, are now printed down to 1604 in Vols. X, XI, XVIII, and 
XXV of the Index Library. The earliest Leicestershire Wills 
extant are those recorded in the Episcopal Registers at Lincoln, 
dating from 1320. These will be found embodied in Mr. A. 
Gibbon's volume on " Early Lincoln Wills." Some few Leicester- 
shire Wills were, it appears, proved in the Court of the Dean and 
Chapter of Lincoln, where they are still preserved. 

The official permission to transcribe and print the Calendars was 
readily given by the Right Hon. Sir Francis Henry Jedne, K.C.B., 
President of the Probate Division, to whom the thanks of the 
subscribers and genealogists generally are due. I have at the same 
time to thank Mr. H. Pickering Clarkej the District Registrar, for 
the courteous manner in which he has facilitated the work. To 
Mr. F. T. Jackson, the chief clerk, I am specially indebted for the 
valuable help he has rendered, and for the interest he has through- 
out taken in the work.

REGISTER BOOK, 1515— 1526. 

This, the earliest Register Book of Wills is a large quarto paper volume, consisting of several 
books bound together, and containing about 510 folios or loao pages in an excellent state of preserva- 
tion. It is stated to contain copies of Wills proved between 1515 and 1526 inclusive, but as will be 
seen it also contains a number of Wills of both earlier and later dates, without the dates of proof. 
The earliest Will is dated 1495, and the latest is dated 1533. The Wills which number about 920, 
many of which are in Latin, are very irregulai iy entered as far as dates are concerned : for instance, 
some of the Wills proved in 1522 are placed before those of the preceding year, whilst part of 1524 
and 1526 are entered before those for 1523. In this order they appear to have been ever since the 
volume was originally made up and bound in the i6th century. There is an old index at the com- 
mencement of the Book curiously arranged according to christian nameswitjjout dates. It is by no 
means a complete or good index, having numerous omissions and several disadvantages. Some of 
the Wills in this Book are also entered in Register Book 1526 — 1533. A new alphabetical index has 
been specially prepared by the compiler for printing, and here follows. In this new Index, whilst 
the original spelling of the testators' surnames has been carefully preserved, it has been thought 
best to give the modern spelling of their christian names, as also of the place names 

Note. — The date of Will is given in brackets, where the date of proof cannot be obtained.

REGISTER BOOK, 1526 — 1533. 

The second Register Book of Wills 1526-1533, is an unbound paper volume much less than the 
earlier one already noticed, and not in such a good state of preservation. It contains about 225 
pages, some of the earliest of which are damaged and are now imperfect, and it contains copies of 
about 220 Wills, but no index. A few of the Wills copied in this volume were proved in 1518; one is 
dated as early as 1500, and several others will be found dated subsequent to 1533. The alphabetical 
index which follows has been specially prepared for this publication. 

Note. — The dates attached to the names of testators are the dates of Wills, except where they 
are marked with an asterisk, which denotes the date of proof.

SERIES II. 



^ranecripte of Mille, 



1500— 1558. 



For an account of the transcripts of Wills extant, see Introduction, p. 83. The chronological 
calendar which follows is practically a copy of the one in use in the Registry as far as 1558, with a 
few important alterations added It must be stated that this calendar does not by any means 
represent all the Wills proved in the Archdeaconry Court of Leicester during the period which it 
covers, as nothing can be said about those records which have long since disappeared. Inventories 
will be found attached to most of the records between 1520 and 1558. 

Note. — The Wills in this calendar chiefly appear under the year they are dated, but in many 
instances they will be found placed under the year in which they were proved. Those marked with 
an asterisk are also in the Register Books of the same period.

SERIES III. 
IRegieter Booke of MilU, 

1560— 1579. 



This is a most important series of Register Books, as tlie date of Probate is attached to nearly 
every Will registered. The first volume has two old Indexes, one at the beginning, and another at 
fo. 84. It contains 173 copies of Wills, about 50 of which were proved in 1560, and the remainder in 
1561. There is no Register Book for 1562. From 1563 to 1579 inclusive there is a Book for each year 
with original Indexes arranged according to christian names, excepting the Book for 1568, which has 
a modern Index. 

The covers of several of these Register Books, viz , 1563 to 1567, 1576 and 1579 are unique. They 
evidently formed part of a beautiful illuminated vellum missal belonging to a Pre-Reformation 
religious house. It is believed by some that thev originally came from the Abbey, but the probability 
is they were obtained from the Collegiate Church of the Newarke, Leicester, at the dissolution. 

The alphabetical arrangement according to surnames, which has been specially prepared for this 
publication, will facilitate searches in many ways.

SERIES IV 



I 5 80 — I 649 



The records calendared in this series are quite distinct from the earlier ones. They consist of 
original Wills and copies mixed, being filed in separate rolls for each year. The roll for 1608 is lost, 
but the index is preserved. There are good Register Books containing copies of Wills for 1585-6 and 
for the years 1587-1588, 1589, 1606, 1607, 1608, 1611 and 16^. Inventories are filed vpith the Wills for 
the first five years, but from 1585 they are arranged and mdexed separately. There is an imperfect 
Act Book for 1^85 and 1586, and Act Books firom 1604 to 1649 inclusive are preserved. The calendar 
from which this copy is taken commences thus : "Testamenta probato Ao. 1580 vnam Inventarijs."
