Family & Will

William Boreman, grandfather of Thomas Boardman of Ipswich, MA. was of Claydon, England, but his sons Nicholas, William and Christopher do not appear in the Claydon Register, and probably settled elsewhere. His inventory taken on the day of his burial, indicates that he was in comfortable circumstances in life, with an estate somewhat larger than his father's and his occupation seems to have been exclusively husbandry.
William Sanderson, whose name appears as a witness to his will, and to four other of later dates, was doubtless the Curate of Claydon, and the writer of the wills he signs as witness. These dates from 1593 to 1631 showing that he was minister of the parish for at least 3 years. His predecessor was probably Christopher Polley or Poley, witness to the will of the first Thomas Boreman in 1576, who signs himself, "Curate and writer herof." It is quite possible that the various Christopher Boremans were namesakes of the old Curate. William Boreman's will is:
"In the name of God Amen the xii daye of December 1610 I William Borman of Cleydon in the Countie of Oxford, husbandman sicke in bodye but of prfecte minde & memorye, thanks be given unto Allmightie God, do ordayne & make this my last will & testament in maner & forme following.
