Notes

Bennet or Benedict Glenister lived in "a cottage in Winslow Sheep Market" in 1647. He was the son of Walter Glenister, and baptised at Winslow on 22 Jan 1614/15. His grandfather was John Glenister, d.1633. He married Anne Stutsberie on 3 Nov 1636 (her name is also given as Agnes). She was probably the widow of Silvester Stutsberie, d.1629, nee Grant, who had a daughter Joan. Bennet's only recorded child was Agnes (bap. 3 March 1640/1) or Ann (d.1704) who married Robert Scott (d.1695) and had a son Benedict (usually called Benjamin), bap. 1 Feb 1670/1 (see below; he became a butcher, following his father).

Bennet Glenister's siblings are listed below. Most of his sisters' children were not baptised at Winslow.

At the manor court on 30 Sep-2 Oct 1674, Ann Scott sought admission according to an out-of-court surrender made by Benedict Glenister, now deceased, on 22 April 1673, to the messuage where he then lived and 10 acres in the fields of Winslow, except a close called the Little Pickles (Centre for Bucks Studies, BAS 376/22 no.28). To the use of Ann for her life, then Benedict Scott her son, or to Ann's heirs if he died before his mother without issue. Most of the land was acquired by William Lowndes between 1694 and 1698. The messuage was in Sheep Street, and known as the Boot. In 1692, Robert, Ann and Benjamin Scott surrendered it so that Benjamin and his new wife Elizabeth could have half for their lives and the rest after Ann's death. In 1695, William Lowndes bought it for £280. Benjamin bought another messuage from the Chandlers in 1696, probably next door, which he mortgaged to John Wyatt in 1698, and sold to Benjamin Saunders in 1701, when he paid heriot so ceased to be a tenant of the manor.
