Who was Margery Eames? [closed]

+6 votes
Margery Eames,(wife of Anthony) used to have a last name of birth as Pierce. This was found to be incorrect and her name at birth is unknown.  

There is a bond dated 1593, deposited in the Wiltshire Archives. The first pages are almost illegible but it is clear that it was made in Fordington (Fordington was a peculiar of Salisbury which is why some of the documents end up there rather than in Dorset)  The last page however shows that it is what the archivists have called a tuition bond: a bond made? by Roger Kete the younger to pay for the education of several children v

I don't know what relationship Roger Kete had to these children

This is interesting Helen. I was wondering if the first page was in Latin, so makes little sense. And the last page has so many light spots, when it gets transcribed it's going to be full of holes.
Possibly, (:  I said it was speculative

Actually the original document  is two pages, long strips,  front and back, divided into 4 for imaging. Someone with a big screen could probably match them up.

The first side  has very little visible but one can spot Fordington. The second has very little on the left hand side but is relatively clear on the  right and  that is the one with the names on it.  I'll try another day at best I could only  do half a line using a laptop.  I just came across this by chance and spotted the similarities to the Kete will. It felt a bit like a eureka moment! (I think that the money must have been left by someone in trust for the children's upkeep. Roger Kete doesn't appear to have any children )
Edited  and closed as have done further research and don't want to add confusion.

Anyone that comes across this might want to be made aware of the other G2G discussion about this, though, located here.
