William Dyde
Scope and Content:
Details of gifts to the poor from John Celley, died 1589. Field called Meadmore, annual rent of £5 [for the poor]. Manors of Passmores and Sumners are not worthy of Holman's notice because Passmores was never a manor and Sumners was but the present owner Mr John Ellis, who holds it in the right of his wife, has no writings to show about it and the court rolls are lost. Mr Ellis's uncle who owned the estate before him, did purchase a third turn of the presentation to the living but not sure in the right of which manor. Answers query about the coat of arms of Mr Sparkes.
