Will and Inventory of Richard Taylor/Tayller, 1593

Taylor left 6d. to both Basing and Sherborne St  John churches, indicating that he lived in the north of the parish (Taylors Farm?). He made specific bequests to his children and grandchildren but his main beneficiaries and executors were his wife and son. The equipment and goods suggest a modest establishment (value £9 9s. 2d.).
