Notes

William Wiet of Shipton was buried on 19 Jan 1695/6. He seems to have been the son of Willliam Wyatt (d.1658) from whom he inherited The Cock at Leighton Buzzard. He was bap. 6 March 1630/1 and married Katherine Henley at Winslow on 21 Feb 1660/1. They had a daughter Mary (bap. 14 March 1661/2, = Mary Deverell), but the daughters named in the will do not seem to have been baptised at Winslow. William served as churchwarden and overseer of the poor.

See the manor court 1696 for the arrangements made by William for his copyhold messuages and land, which were divided between his daughters Ann and Katherine.

Bicken: presumably Biggin Farm.

pullen = poultry
