John Question, 8x great grandfather

John Question does not have a will at the PCC so the only records I have for him at the moment are from the Lay Subsidy Rolls and Protestation Returns 1641-42 at Dunster:

Rated at 1 s at Avell in Dunster on the Lay Subsidy Rolls 1641-42.

Rated at 6s at Carhampton on the Lay Subsidy Rolls 1641-42.

He married Elizabeth (unknown) and Elizabeth was buried 19 Mar 1658/59 at Dunster. John was baptized 8 Jan 1597/98 at Dunster and buried 21 Jan 1670/71 at Dunster. They had seven children: Jone (married to Nicholas Blake), Elizabeth (b 1628; d 1628/29 at Dunster), John (b 1631; d 1636 at Dunster), Augustine (b 29 Sep 1633 at Dunster and buried 2 Nov 1708 at Carhampton) married to Susan or Mary Millett 29 Sep 1658 at Dunster and this is the father of my ancestress Elizabeth, Elizabeth (b 1635; d 1636 at Dunster), Andrew (bc 1640; d 1677 at Dunster) married to Rachel Turrill 22 Apr 1674 at Timberscombe, and John (bc unknown; d 1642 at Dunster).

I must check and see if I have any correspondents on the Nicholas Blake and Jone Question family to mention Dig Village to them.

With that I return to Christmas preparations.
