Abstract of Will from the Probate Registry, York.
Abstract of the Will of John Northend the younger of Weeton in the parish of Rowley in the County of York, Yeoman. Date, 20th July 1604.
To be buried in the parish church of Rowley near the place where my father late deceased was buried. To my youngest son Robert my Manor of Weeton, also five fields in Weeton, which I have bought of Xpofer Thornton of North Ferribye, also a messuage and five oxgangs of land in Wilberforce late in the occupation of Edward Harling, also one other messuage and one oxgang of land in the tenure of William Gascoigne, also a cottage and one toft and one croft late in the holding of Edward Bradley purchased of Anthony Rawson of Gilstead in the parish of Bingley. Whereas I am seized of two acres of copyhold acres of land in Cottingham my mind is that my eldest son John Northend shall surrender the said land to the said Robert Northend. To the poor of Rowley forty shillings in silver. To Alice Northend my wife, one horse & two milk kyne. To my eldest son John Northend, a haywayne, a plough, a yocke of oxen and two horses. The residue of my goods I give unto Robert Northend my youngest son whom I make executor. Witnesses; Thomas Jenkinson, William Dry of Beverley.
Proved 2 April 1605, by John Burnsell for the use & behoof of Robert Northend the son & executor
Burial 13 January 1605, Halifax, St. John the Baptist, Yorkshire, England.
NOTE: Will asks to be buried in Rowley, but registry says buried in Halifax. Looking at the original burial record from Halifax, I see a notation "north" at the end of the entry. I believe this means North Riding, which includes Rowley. Thus, I believe he was buried in Rowley and it was recorded in Halifax.Anderson-35092
