Notes

Margaret Gyles, widow, was buried on 30 Nov 1625. She seems to have been the widow of William Gyles, buried 5 Sep 1615. Their son William was baptised 14 Nov 1586. He married Alice Brodhurst (nee Jackson?) on 25 Sep 1611, and she was buried on 29 April 1623. There are no baptisms recorded for any children of their marriage, which could be the first evidence for the Gyles family becoming the leading Baptists in Winslow.
