Bucks Assizes, Summer 1681

National Archives, ASSI 16/40/1

See 1662 Assizes for an introduction. Few records survive for 1681 but there is one case concerning a Winslow woman. The outcome isn't known.

[Latin] Be it remembered that that at the general Quarter Sessions held at Aylesbury on 14 April 33 Charles II [1681] Hugh Glenister of Winslow farmer mainprised (for Mary Glenister) and acknowledged that he owed to the lord King £100; William Greene of Winge labourer mainprised and acknowledged that he owed the lord King £50; John Glenister of Winslow farmer mainprised and acknowledged that he owed the lord King £50; to be levied from their goods and chattels, lands and holdings, under the condition on the reverse.

Hugh Glenister son of John was baptised at Winslow in 1656.  A Hugh Glenister was buried in 1682 and John Glenister in 1684 (not necessarily the same people).
