Will of Isabell Blake, widow, Boldre, Hampshire - Family Search Film 186685, Catalogue A-759, number 200, probated 24 Sep 1539

Isabel Blake, the testatrix, is unknown and does not identify her husband in the will below. The only other Blake mentioned is George Blake and his will is to come having been probated in 1547.

The will of Thomas Blake also of Boldre:


blogged 22 March 2014 does not appear to fit with this will. There is one other Blake mentioned in the will of Thomas Blake and that was John Blake. Isabell does mentioned similar people namely Christian Draper. I will check the name William Perys to see if I should have had Wyllyam Peres in the earlier will. Indeed it could be Wyllyam Peres and I have made that change. The long r is readily confused with the s especially when there is a line above.
