(Abstract from Lichfield Registry)
The will of Thomas Perkyns the elder, of Hilmorton, was made September 15, 1588, and proved May 11, 1592. He asked to be buried in the parish church or churchyard, and gave for the relief of the poor of Hillmorton 10s. To every godchild, 6d.
To his son John and his heirs male, his house, messuage or tenement in Hillmorton late in the tenure of Thomas Bassett, with an orchard, a close, one back-side of the tenement and one half-yard of arable land with meadows, pastures and commons thereto belonging, with successive remainders to his sons Edward and his heirs male, his son Luke and his heirs male and a final remainder to his own right heirs.
To his eldest son Henry Perkyns, all the residue of his houses, lands, tenements and hereditaments. To Alice “now my wife,” all his household stuff, furniture in the parlor or chamber where we used to lie (one coffer with his evidences excepted), and the use of the said chamber during widowhood. To his son William Perkyns, 10s. To his son Thomas Perkyns, 10s.
To his son Edward Perkyns £40 four years after his death. To his son Luke Perkyns, £40 ten years after his death. To every one of his sons’ children, a ewe and a lamb. To his brother Kebble’s wife, a ewe and a lamb. To Thomas Kebble, a lamb. To his brother William Perkyns, a ewe and a lamb.
Residue to sone Henry Perkyns, sole executor. Witnesses: Edward Tomson, Edward Heres, Thomas Bottre, Nicholas Duell, William Kebbell, Thomas Heres. The inventory was in the sum of £192:10:0, and was taken March 29, 1592, by Edward Compton, Richard Smyth and Thomas Garfield.
…He was presumably born in Hillmorton about 1525. As he leaves a legacy in his will to his “brother Kebble’s wife,” his wife Alice may have been Alice Kebble, but there are, of course, other possibilities. Four Kebble wills of the period and locality have been abstracted without identifying her.
