Will of Richard Munday, Monxton, Hampshire - Family Search Film 186879, catalogue H-892, number 6, probated 29 Aug 1551

It seemed logical at this point to transcribe the will of Richard Munday who married the widow Margaret Blake after the death of her husband Nicholas Blake in 1547. Nicholas being the brother of Robert Blake and both thought to be the sons of Richard and Jone Blake (Richard leaving his will in 1522 and Jone leaving her will in 1527).

I have been concentrating on the Robert Blake line (brother of Nicholas) but in order to keep current timewise I need to bring in the few items on the Nicholas Blake line (my line by all appearances).

In his will Richard mentions Margaret’s deceased husband Nicholas Blake, Edmund youngest son of Nicholas and Margaret and Elizabeth unmarried daughter of Nicholas and Margaret. The only other children of Nicholas and Margaret were William and Ann (married to Godfrey) but not mentioned in Richard Munday's will. What is not known is whether or not Nicholas was married twice with William and Ann being older siblings of Edmund and Elizabeth although their older brother William does remember all of them in his will of 1582 without differentiating (blogged):


I also have part of the will of Margaret Munday but the second page of the will proper is missing. I shall order that one from the Hampshire Record Office with my next batch that I want to order but will publish what is available and add the remainder later if it is available.

For completeness in the analysis, Richard identifies his sons as William (executor), John, and Richard, and daughters Jone, Anys, and Elysabeth.
