Robert Dale and Joan --

Robert Dale resided in Burstall, Suffolk, England. He married Joan --. Robert's will was written 1 November 1557 and proved 4 December 1557.

Robertís children, probably all by Joan, are:

  1. Anne Dale, eldest daughter.
  2. Robert Dale, married Joan Flint 18 Jul 1563 in Burstall, Suffolk, England.
  3. Margaret Dale, married Thomas Howditch 10 Jun 1560 in Burstall, Suffolk, England.
  4. Elizabeth Dale, married Philip Gardiner (son of Richard Gardiner, will dated 23 Feb 1613/4 and proved 9 Jun 1615, yeoman) 15 Oct 1560 in Burstall, Suffolk, England, lived in Elmsett, Suffolk, England, buried 14 Mar 1615/6 in Burstall, Suffolk, England, will dated 20 Nov 1615 at Burstall, Suffolk, England and proved 27 Sep 1616.
  5. Alice Dale, buried 18 Jan 1547/8 in Burstall, Suffolk, England.
  6. Alice Dale, baptized 9 May 1544 in Burstall, Suffolk, England. Myrtle Stevens Hyde felt that the Alice baptized in 1544 was a different one than the Alice who was buried in 1547/8 since Robert, in his will, mentioned a daughter named Alice and that Agnes was his youngest daughter. She proposed a possible scenario where the first Alice became ill and Robert and Joan named their next daughter Alice to ensure that an Alice remained in the family. Certainly, if Alice in the will was older than Agnes, it was more likely that she was born before Philip, as there was likely little to not enough time between Philip's likely birth and Agnes' to fit a pregnancy with another child. Regardless of whether the second Alice was indeed born while the first Alice was alive or not, there were almost certainly two daughters named Alice in this family.
  7. Philip Dale, baptized 6 Dec 1546 in Burstall, Suffolk, England, buried 6 Apr 1547 in Burstall, Suffolk, England.
  8. Agnes Dale, youngest daughter, baptized 21 May 1548 in Burstall, Suffolk, England.
