Commission issued 2 June 1634 to Ellis (or Elias) Juxon, natural and
lawful brother of Alban Juxon, deceased in parts beyond the seas, to ad-
minster his goods &c. Admon. Act Book (1634-1636) fob 30.

Commission issued 7 April 1635 to Elizabeth Juxon mother of Ri-

Robert Retnoldes of Stockersou ah. Stockefaston, Leicestershire;
Esq. 16 July 1634, proved 16 February 1635. To my kinswoman widow
Spencer of Loudon five pounds in money and to her daughter Anne the

mas Burton, Jane Burton, Mary Holdinge and Charles Havers. Others
named. Messuages &c. in Branston in the county of Rutland. My
grandchild John Havers. My wife Anne sole executrix.

Then follows sententia pro confirmatione &c. which was promulgated 1 6
February 1635 following upon litigation between Sir Thomas Burton
knight, father and curator ad lites of John, Thomas and Jane Burton,
grandsons by the daughter of the deceased, of the one part and Anne
Reynolds, now deceased, whilst she lived relict and executrix of the de-
ceased and now between John Havers Esq. executor of the will of the
aforesaid Anne Reynoldes deceased, of the other part. Pile, 17.

[Near the above, in the same quire, is the registration of the will of Anne
Reynoldes, widow of the foregoing. She mentions her various relatives named
Burton, Holden or Holdinge and Havers, but throws no light whatever upon the
Juxson(?) connection.

Here might come the will of Thomas Ferrers, citizen and clothworker of
London, who seems to have married Judith the widow of John Juxon. This
will was made 5 March 11 Charles, with a codicil dated 14 March 1635, proved
17 January 1636. He mentions wife Judith and the children she had by her
former husbands, without naming them, and also her uncle Sir Nicholas Rayn-
ton and her brother Nicholas Raynton. This is all I found in his will bearinsr
on his wife's relationships. In case any one interested w^ould like to make a
further and larger examination of it, I would say it is registered in Book
Goare (11).]
