Probate from the Archdeacon of Buckingham, 22 March 1794.


Benjamin Ingram was the eldest son of Benjamin Ingram of Winslow (d.1778), q.v. for more about the family, and inherited his considerable property. He was baptised 7 Feb 1724/5 and married Ann Parrot of East Claydon, widow, at Winslow in 1766. That was probably when he established himself as a dairyman at East Claydon. They evidently had no children. Ann was buried at East Claydon in 1815 aged 85.

As Winslow wasn't within the jurisdiction of the Archdeacon of Buckingham, the will shouldn't have been proved at his court, but it apparently went unchallenged.
