Inventory and renunciation of Thomas Riggs, infant and gentleman, 1665

Thomas Riggs was a teenager who had inherited a farm which was sold for £400. His father must have died when Thomas was very young as his grandfather, Richard Hooke of Hooke claimed for 11 years of schooling and maintenance from Thomas' estate. Which farm it was and whether it was even in Newnham is not known.
