Will, Inventory and Renunciation of John Wareham, bricklayer 1691

Wareham described himself as a bricklayer but his will and inventory referred to a malt mill, millhouse and shop suggesting a change in occupation. It also listed books. He bequeathed his house to his son and daughter, each to have half of the property in Basingstoke. He nominated his wife as his executrix but she renounced the responsibility and appointed his son to carry out the duties.
