Biography

Geoffrey Fiske[1] was born about 1472, in Laxfield, Suffolk, England. Geoffrey was, for many years, referred to, incorrectly, as Richard. In his later life, Geoffrey was referred to as Geoffrey Fiske the Elder, to distinguish him from his son Jeffrey[2].

'Geoffrey, probably of Shalbrook [?], 149-, of Laxfield, 1524, 1535, named as a legatee (6s. 8d. and a brass pan) in his mother's will and mentioned in his father's will, b. about 1474; living in 1536, when he and his son John Fiske, as residuary legatees and executors of the will of Sir John Fyske of Laxfield [priest], dated 2 Oct. 1535 (Will No. 18), proved that will; m. -----. Children: 1. John, living in 1536 (see above, account of his father). Probably other children.'[3]

Note: Removed death date of 29 Apr 1591 as it was causing a too old error and is not sourced and is inconsistent with other dates given - may just be a typo

Margaret was not the wife of this Geoffrey. The children listed as Margaret’s and Geoffrey’s were the children of Geoffrey and his wife Alice, however the DOB’s are incorrect. Margaret will be removed as his wife.

Can you validate the dates on this profile? He lived to over 100 and has children born when he is too young....

Thanks
