From The Ancestry of Dudley Wildes
He was presumably born in Hillmorton about 1500. He made a will which is missing, but on June 16, 1546, it was proved by Simon Clare, Thomas Cumpton and Richard Balye, the executors, he being named as Henry Perkyns late of the parish of Hilmorton, deceased. It is stated in an abstract made in or before 1894 that "Thomas Perkyns, the son, is mentioned," but in a recent abstract this does not appear.
Administration on the estate of his daughter Joan Perkins, of Hillmorton, was granted to Thomas Perkins, her brother, on June 17, 1578.
