Notes

Richard Dingley held 4 acres of land provided by his father-in-law John Sheffeild in 1648, although he is described as a labourer. He was buried on 7 Sep 1658 and was probably the son of the Richard Dingley buried on 12 Aug 1647. The three children mentioned in the will were Mary (bap. 27 Feb 1646), John (bap. 16 Feb 1648/9) and Susan (bap. 18 June 1652). After his death, his widow Ann married John King.
