Will of John Blake, Penton Mewsey, Hampshire - Family Search, Film 186905, Catalogue J-667, Number 122, probated 8 May 1620

This will of John Blake, Penton Mewsey was acquired from Family Search using their Photoduplication form and it is Film 186905, catalogue designation J-667, year of event  8 May 1620 (proven) and number on film 122.

I am not of the opinion that the will of this John Blake is the son of the John Blake whose will was probated in 1611 and will be published shortly.

There is a John Blake will probated in 1593 (and blogged yesterday)

that I rather think is the father of this John.  The freehold that was held by John Blake in 1611 did not pass to this John and the children of the son John in the 1611 will did not have a son John mentioned only Christopher.

In this present will John names his children John Blake, Jone Blake and Hugh Blake (who is under twelve years of age).

Presumably John and Jone are both over twelve years of age since he did not put any restriction on their money. The testator names his wife as Agnes.
