Geoffrey Fiske 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.
'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.'
