Will of Anne Turner, widow, of Catley, Bosbury, 1587

This will clearly identifies Anne Turner as the widow of James Turner the younger of Catley. Note that the will of James Turner was proved in 1579. In that he was described as 'James Turner the Elder', but it is obviously the same man, as he mentioned his wife Anne and the same children as she does - a son John, and daughters Margry Yate, Anne (Bridge in James' will and Rogge in Anne's) and Blanche, unmarried at the time of James' death and married to a Mills by 1587.
