Notes

John Bletchley acquired a house in Winslow in 1664. He was buried on 19 July 1670. He married Emma Low (a widow; d.1708) at Great Linford in 1657. She was the mother of Raynes Low(e), d.1675, and was also a midwife. Her third husband was John Greene, doctor and apothecary; they were the grandparents of John Turner, surgeon and apothecary (d.1767).
