12 October 1687, in his 96th year, and buried in All Saints Church, West Ham,
Esses. He was created baronet 21 November 1660, with the title to revert on
his death to his son-iu-law, Arthur Onslow, of AVest Clandon. 16 December

Foot of London, and grandson of Robert Foot of Royston. John Foote of St.

the 23 rd January; he was of Sepulchers Parish, without Newgate." Another
daughter, Elizabeth, married Sir John Cutler, citizen and grocer of London, as
his second wife, by whom he had a daughter who died before his death, which oc-
curred 15 April 1693. This Sir John was sadly satirized by Pope for his avarice.

[This family of Foote whose wills I have here given should be of interest to
many in New England. Joshua Foote, one of the sons of Robert Foote of
Shalford, was a citizen and ironmonger of London, and his name will be found
often mentioned in Lechford's Note Book and also in the Records of Suffolk
county, Mass. He went to Roxbury and afterwards to Providence, as Savage
informs us, and died there in 1G55. His will was dated 2 October of that year,
and under it administration was granted at Boston, 31 October of same year, to
Joshua Hewes, who also was of Roxbury and who is proved by these wills to
have been his nephew, being a son of John Hewes of Royston by Mary, daugh-
ter of Robert Foote of Shalford and sister of Joshua Foote. I would suggest
also that Nathaniel Foote of Watertown may have been another of the sons of
Robert Foote of Shalford. Elizabeth Goddard, the wife of William Goddard
of Watertown, turns out to be connected with this family; but I tako it she was
not a Foote but a Miles, sister of that Rev. Joseph Miles whose will I have
given and stepdaughter of Robert Foote, citizen and grocer of London (brother
of Joshua and Nathaniel Foote and of Mrs. Mary Hewes). I find that commis-
sion issued at London 18 June, 1G31 to Elizabeth Mile? relict of Benjamin Miles
lately of Ware, Herts, to administer his goods &c. This may have been the
father of Joseph Miles and Elizabeth Goddard. If so it was this widow
Elizabeth Miles who afterwards became the wife of Robert Foote.

Another interesing connection of this family is with the Onslow family aud
with Sir John Lewis, a brother-in-law of our Nathaniel Newdigate or Newgate.
Still another is with that "famous" family of Juxon as (I think) Cotton
Mather calls them, which was connected with New England through tho
Sheafes and the Byflelds aud also with Virginia. The wills relating to the

Juxous aud their connections will follow. Let me first however give a short
