John "of Tivetshall" was born to John Sr and Margaret Crispe Fiske ca 1548; He was living in 1590 when named in his brother's will.[1] He was an executor of his father's will of February 1603.

John was married to Thomasine, whose birth surname is unknown. She is probably the Thomasine Fiske who married William Smith in 1611. John's will was probated on October 31, 1609 and mentions no children. He left bequests, including his wheelwright and joining tools, to his nephews and nieces and his goods and chattels were to be given to Thomasine, provided that she post a bond.[2]
