Margaret Fiske


05 MAY 1504 Laxfield, Co. Suffolk, England
'5. The Will of Margaret Fyske of Laxfeld [Laxfield, co. Suffolk], wife of Jaffrey Fyske of the same town.* [*-In Pierce's Fiske and Fisk Family, p. 36 (No.3), this testatrix is said to have made her will on 4 May 1504, the day after the date of her husband's will. But her husband, Jaffrey Fyske, in his will, dated 3 May 1504 (vide infra), makes no mention of his wife, and it is likely, therefore, that she was already dead or on the verge of death when he made his will. Both wills were proved 13 May 1504.] To be buried in Laxfeld churchyard. To the high altar of Denington [Dennington, co. Suffolk] 12d. To the high altar of Laxfeld 12d. To the Gild of Our Lady there 40d. To the Black Friars and Grey Friars of Dunwich [co. Suffolk] 40d. each. A reasonable stipend for a priest's service for the whole year. To Master John Fyske 10s. To Jaffrey, his brother, 6s. 8d. and a brass pan. To each godchild 4d. To Margaret Crspe, the wife of Jaffrey Cryspe, wheelwright, a brass pot. To John Baas of Denington the Younger 'a pot with a broke syde.' To Ele Warner of Enyngton my best cap. To Odeny Baas a harnessed girdle with a 'blew corse.' To Johane Lefechyld of Norwich 12d. To Isabel West a coat, etc. To Draper's wife my cloak. Executor and residuary legatee: Master John Fyske, to dispose for me to God's honour and pleasure and for the soul's health. Proved 13 May 1504 by Master John Fiske. (Archdeaconry of Suffolk [Ipswich Probate Registry], book 4, fo. 135.)'[1]
