Additional Notes: As requested in John HAVILAND's Will he is buried inside the church at Winstone. He worked in London around Fleet Street and printed the writings of Francis Bacon. He also worked for the King's Printing Press. He was a very wealthy man, and being a printer in the early 1600s, could have been the 'Bill Gates' of his time! He employed Oliver Cromwell's son in law as his proof reader.

  1. The above details were correct at the time they were provided to me (originally 08 Sep 2006); however the web is a volatile beast, so please bear in mind the information may no longer be current.

  2. Contact details are provided for acknowledging contributions, and for establishing mutual interest only - please do NOT expect us to provide more general help with your research. In addition, please be aware that the submitter may NOT be researching the families mentioned in the Will, as he or she may have collected it for another purpose entirely - for example, Local History or Population research.

  3. As a precaution against spam-bot "harvesting", all email addresses are provided using snippets of Javascript code. Nevertheless they may still attract unsolicited email, or "spam", so many submitters prefer NOT to make their email address available directly.
