[These Juxon wills, -which began with the will of Thomas Knott on the last
page of my Gleanings for July (ante, p. 1358), enable us to enlarge very greatly
the pedigree of Juxon given in the Visitation of London for 1633-4, &c, as
published by the Harleian Society (page 23 of the second volume) . It begins
with a John'juxon, whose will I have not run across, but who appears appar-
ently in the registry of Christ Church, Newgate Street, a printed copy of
which I had a chance to examine hurriedly last year. From that I gleaned the
following :

Christenings.

1552 Aug. 18 Richard son of John Juxon.

1578 May 11 Thomas son of Thomas Juxson.

1580 May 23 Christopher son of Rass (Raff) Juxson.

1581 Aug. 27 Mary daughter of Rase (Rafe) Juxson.

1585 June 4 Agnes daughter of Rafe Jugson by his wife Sara.

1585 June 4 Mary daughter of Thomas Jugson.
158G Aug. 21 Arthur son of Raf Jugson.

1586 Sept. 10 Mary daughter of Thomas Judgson.

Marriages.
1578 Feb. 2 Rafe Ingson (Jugson) and Sara syster unto Mr. Smalwood'a

wyf.

Burials.
1560 June 21 John Judson.
1566 Mar. 6 John Juxon's grandmother.

1582 July 14 Mrs. Jugson wife of Thomas, grocer.
1586 Mar. 2 Rafe Juxson.

Among the Marriage Licenses recorded in the Vicar General's Book (1533-90)
I found one issued in January 1583 to the curate of St. Mildred's, Bread Street,
to solemnize a marriage between Thomas Juxon of Christ Church, Newgate,
merchant taylor and Elizabeth Ireland spinster (puellamj, daughter of John Ire-
land of the aforesaid parish, salter. This was that Thomas Juxon whose will
was published in my Gleanings for July 1889 (Register, Vol. 43, pp. 304-5,
ante, p. 345). His daughter Elizabeth became the wife of Sampson Cotton,
whose will was also published in that same volume of the Register (p. 303,
ante, p. 344). Elizabeth, one of the daughters of Sampson and Elizabeth Cot-
ton, was the wife of Edmond Sheafe and the mother of Sampson Sheafe of
New England; after the death of Mr. Sheafe she was married to Mr. Matthew
Barker, a clergyman of London. Anne, another daughter of Sampson Cotton,
became the wife of Thomas Walters, a merchant of London ; Joane, another,
was married first to John Wood, a merchant of London, and secondly to John
Bence ; Hester, another daughter, was married first to William Ballowe, citizen
and mercer of London, and secondly to Edward Wastfield or Westfleld, citizen
and grocer of London. Most of the wills of these people I have gathered and
here publish.]



1384 GENEALOGICAL GLEANINGS IN ENGLAND.

Whitfield and Southcott (mite, pp. 839, 1344-1354) :

[Thomas Southcott of Calwoodley, Devon, whose will is given in Reg., Vol. 48,
p. 139, ante p. 839, mentions his son Richard whom he makes his sole executor.

Vivian's Visitation of Devon gives the wife of Richard as Elizabeth Whif-
fleld of Wadhurst, Sussex, an evident error for Whitfield.

It was this Richard most probably who was at Dorchester, who came in the
Mary and John, 1630, and returned in July of that year to England.

His brother was George Southcott of Kilmington, Devon, of whom is re-
corded in the Public Record Office his great service to the Puritans. Thomas,
son of George, is also mentioned.

Mr. Waters, in his article on the Whitfield family, July number (vol. 51, p.
410 to 420; ante, pp. 1344-1354), asks for a list of the children of Rev. Henry
Whitfield.

The following account, prepared by Hon. Ralph Dunning Smyth, has been for-
warded by his grandson, Dr. Bernard C. Steiner, librarian of the Enoch Pratt
Free Library of Baltimore : —

"Rev. Henry Whitfield, p. 1597 at Mortlake, England; d. Sept. 1657, at
Winchester, Eng. ; m. 1618 Miss Dorothy Sheaffe, dau. Dr. Edmund Sheaffe of
Cranbrook, Kent. She survived her husband. Both returned to England in
1650, having emigrated thence to America in 1639. Their children were:

1. Dorothy, bap. at Ockley, England, Mch. 25, 1619; said to have been the
wife of Thomas Jordan, one of the first settlers of Guilford, or according to
another account of Samuel Desborough, Lord Keeper of Scotland under Crom-
well.

2. Sarah, bap. at Ockley Nov. 1, 1620; d. 1675; m. 1641 Rev. John Higginsou
of Guildford and Salem.

3. Abigail, bap. at Ockley Sept. 1, 1622; d. at Saybrook, Conn., Sept. 9,
1659; m. Rev. James Fitch of Saybrook and Norwich.

4. Thomas, bap. at Ockley Dec. 28, 1624. Probably did not come to Guilford,
may have died young.

5. John, bap. at Ockley Feb. 11, 1626: came to Guilford but returned to Eng-
land with his father.

6. Nathaniel, bap. at Ockley June 28, 1629; came to Guilford but returned to
EDgland soon after his father, probably about 1655.

7. Mary, bap. at Ockley March 4, 1631.

8. Henry, bap. at Ockley March 9, 1633; d. at Ockley Feb. 28, 1634.

9. Rebecca, bap. at Ockley Dec. 22, 1635."

Elliot Stone, Esq., Riverdale, New York City, furnishes extracts from the
records of Ockley, Surrey, printed in the " Proceedings at the Celebration of
the 250th Anniversary of the settlement of Guilford."

Bate (ante, p. 1291):

[I do not know whether the Bates of Lyd were related to the family of the
same name in London, but I can send you for publication, if you wish it, an
abstract of the wills of Anthony Bate, citizen and clothworker of London 1598,
and his brother Robert Bate of Little Chester, co. Derby, 1626. I also have
wills of the Bates of Little Chester and a short pedigree from the Visitation
of Norfolk 1563.

Among the records of benefactions to the Ironmongers Company of Lon-
don is an entry in 1500 : —
