Notes

Hugh Stutsbery was buried at Winslow on 3 Feb 1609/10. He may have continued the business of William Davies/Davers (d.1588) whose widow married Thomas Stutsbery, but now with more groceries and less haberdashery. He married Jane Heyborne (15 June 1590) and had a number of children who were under age at his death: the eldest was John (bap. 20 April 1591). The administrator may have been Thomas Bowden, who was active at the time.
