Farleigh Wallop Probate Material, 1601-1620
Probate material that survives from this period includes the wills of two husbandmen, and the will and inventory of a gentlewoman, Jane Aubrey, a member of the Wallop family. Both husbandmen left gifts to the poor.
The communities of neighbouring parishes, Cliddesden and Farleigh Wallop, were linked as the Wallop family were lords of both manors.
