Notes

The items in the inventory add up to £16 2s 2d. Evidently the name Hogson sounded like Oakson to the officials at St Albans.

William Hogson's burial is not recorded at Winslow (most of the records for 1665/6 are missing). A William Hogson was bap. 12 Sep 1607 (name of father missing) and married Marjory Plesteed on 21 Nov 1631. See the will of Marjory's mother Ursula Pleasted (1659) for details of their family. Marjory died in 1654, and William's wife at the time of his death according to the 1665 court roll was called Catherine.
