The testator is Joan Blake, widow of Upton, Hurstbourne Tarrant in Hampshire. In her will she only mentions the children of her daughters.This one also has an interesting inventory.

Names mentioned in the will:

Jone Blake, testator, Upton, Hurstbourne Tarrant
John Salmon, son in law
Dorothy Salmon, daughter
Elizabeth Salmon, grand daughter
John Salmon, grandson
Ann Salmon, grand daughter
John Woollridg, grandson
Francis Woollridg, daughter, executrix

Thomas Nalder, witness
Francis Nalder, witness, accessor
John Blake, accessor

One of the descendants of Robert Blake (son of Nicholas who left his will in 1547 at Enham) and he was descended of John Blake the Elder and named John living at Upton as he died there before 25 Feb 1605 and his will is to come; he is mentioned by Charlou Dolan:

This John who left his will at Upton is traced down with his children named (by Charlou) as Agnes, Christian, Elizabeth and John.

There is a place called Blakes at Hurstbourne Tarrant and it is a Grade II building.

This is the Frewin/Frewen/Fruin/Fruen Website and is a collection of material for this family. I could not find the header page for the above information as I just discovered that you can not see the source code for a page in Firefox.

Checking Family Search, Find My Past and no sign of the Salmon family with Dorothy as mother. I will wait for more wills to be blogged in the Upton area.
