Will of Thomas King, Yeoman, Upton Gray, Hampshire - The National Archives, PROB 11/368, probated 2 Dec 1681

Likely a member of the same King family at Upton Gray and Thomas names his sons Thomas and John and his daughters Mary, Elizabeth and Martha. All are under twenty one years of age. His wife is named as Mary.

A Thomas King was baptized 21 Oct 1633 at Upton Grey son of Thomas and Elisabeth King.

Elizabeth King daughter of Thomas and Marie Kinge was baptized 9 Apr 1672 at Upton Grey.
Martha Kinge daughter of Thomas and Mary Kinge was baptized 2 Nov 1674 at Upton Grey.
John Kinge son of Thomas and Marie Kinge was baptized 16 Apr 1677 at Upton Grey

A little later on but an interesting baptism of Thomas King son of Thomas and Ann King baptized 9 May 1695 at Upton Grey.

The will of Anne King probated in 1729 mentions that her husband’s name was Thomas King.

Always nice to be able to link these wills. Once again, this is not likely  my family as no mention of my Thomas at Upper Clatford in the will of Anne King.
