John Lawrence

M, b. before 12 January 1562/1563 (
      "At Michaelmas Term 1579, John Lawrence was demised "messuage and land in St. Albans" by Richard Bull, Gent., and William Hartforde, Gent.," (The Herts Genealogist and Antiquary, Vol. 2) perhaps in anticipation of his marriage to Richard Bull's daughter.
     
     
      John Lawrence, father of Thomas Lawrence and grandfather of the immigrants, has hertofore been identified as the John Lawrence who was baptized at St. Albans Abbey on 12 (or 2) January 1561/2, (William Brigg, The Parish Registers of St. Albans Abbey, 1588-1689 (Harpenden, 1897) pg 3) had children by an unknown wife beginninng in 1580, married second at ST. Albans Abbey on 25 January 1586/7 Margaret Robertes, (William Brigg, The Parish Registers of St. Albans Abbey, 1588-1689 (Harpenden, 1897) pg 135) and was buried there on 24 June 1609. (Ibid, pg 201) His marriage record record in 1579 in Hertford makes it highly unlikely that he was baptized in 1561/2, and his estate inventory indicates that his son Richard (who was baptized in 1587) was a nephew of Mr. Richard Bull of Hertford; hence John was still married to Elizabeth Bull in 1587, and the marriage to Margaret Robertes must belong to another John Lawrence.
     
     
      The inventory of the goods, debts, and chattels of the estate of John Lawrence, late of the town of St. Albans, Chandler, was taken on 10 August 1609 by William Drew, Richard Lawrence, John Browne, and Pierce Tompson. (Hertfordshire Record Office, John
Lawrence 1609, Inventory A25/2113) On 29 August 1609, "Admisistration was granted of the goods of John Lawrence, whilst he lived of St. Albans, to William Laurence, the natural and lawful son of the said deceased.... (Hertfordshire Record Office, Probate and Administration Act Book, 1540-1639) The accounting of William Lawrence was sworn in April 1610; it includes "paide and laide out about the funeralle of the said deceassed and his wife to the minister clark and Sexton and in making the neighbours drink xliiij." The account also includes the following statement about John Lawrence's heirs:
     
     
      Where of the Judge hath allowed and allotted and doth by these presents allow and allott unto Edward [,] John [,] and Thomas Lawrenc[e] Sonnes of the said deceased for their parts and porcon in the said goodes fortye shillings a peece to be paid within one yeare after the date of these presents and unto Marye Lawrence one of the daughters of the daid deceased xxJohn Lawrence be paid as aforesaid but unto Richard Lawrence one other of the sonnes of said deceased the judge hath not allotted any porcon for that Mr. Richard Bull Hartford his uncle hath undertaken to educate him and hath for that cause hath [sic] byn permitted to enjoye some parte of the good pretended to belong to the deceased and yet retayned by the said Mr. Bull to be his of right and belongeing to the free hold vizt the waynscott ubduce in the chardge as is above expressed and unto Anne and Joanne tow other daughters of the said deceased for that they had already had the apparell of their mother praysed in the inventory at xiJohn Lawrence and some other lynen betweene them the judgge hath allowed unto them xxJohn Lawrence a peece to be paid as aforesaid.

Richard Bull1

M, b. circa 1511, d. 14 September 1585
      "Richard Bull signed the 1572 Herfordshire Visitation pedigree, in which he identified his parents and grandparents. In the same pedigree he stated that his wife was Alice Hunt "of Stanford," and that his children were Henry, aged 5, Richard, aged seven weeks; Anne and Elizabeth.
     
      It appears that Richard Bull's children were all born after he was forty-nine or fifty years old. Whether he was a bachelor or a childless widower when he married Alice Hunt has not been determined. His Inquisition Post Mortem indicates that after his death she married on 17 March 1586 Anthony Garland.
     
      Charles Bull's will directs that his children be bound as apprentices in London. That this happened to Richard is suggested by the following:
     
      6 February 1547/8; Quit Claim by Richard Bull of London, Gentleman to John Forster of Bramfield, Gentleman, in regard to lands and tenements in Bramfield, Tewin and Datchworth, formerly of John Pyrte (Manor of Bramfield).
     
      Later, he returned to Herfordshire, where he served as a bailiff in 1578 and a Burgess of the borough.
     
     
      Richard Bull died in testate:
     
     
      Will of Richard Bull of the town of Hertfordshire, gentleman, dated 2 September 1585, proved November 1585. Sick in body. To be buried in church of St. Andrews, Herfordshire. 10s to be distributed among the poor people of the parish of St. Andrew. To Alice my wife all my messuage or tenement called Benwicke Hall in the parish of Stapleford, county aforesaid, with all lands [ etc. ]. being freehold known as Stapleford and Bengeho is said county; after her decease to my son Henry Bull.
      To my said wife, all lands [ etc. ] being frehold know as Bakers "or by any other name or names whatsoever in the saide parishes of Stapleford and Bengtho" (except messuage or tenement [ etc. ] in tenure of George Kinge) and my grounds in Manor of Russelles; after her decease to my son Henry Bull. To my said wife all my messuage [etc.] called Baldwyns in Waterford, parish of Bengeho now in the occupation of said George King, and after her decease to my son Henry. To my said wife Alice all that capital messuage or tenement wherin I now dwell in saide parish of St. Andrew, and adjoining tenement [etc.] in occupation of Rafe Lee; after her death to said Henry my son. To said Alice my wife my 2 messuages [etc.] in several tenures of Richard Crowche and Thomas Wratting in said town of Hertford; after her decease to my said son Henry Bull. My Messuage or tenement at west end of town of Hertford now in tenure of Anthony Garland [etc.] to my said wife Alice, and after her decease to Richard Bull my son; if he has no issue, then to my next heirs. All those my 4 messuages in several tenures of Leonard Halforde, John [ ? ], William Ford, and Cutbert Stevenson in town of Hertford [etc.] to my said son Henry Bull. To my daughtr Alice 650 at the age of 21 or marriage. To daughter Alice one standing bed, featherbed, a bolster, a pillow, a coverlet, and a pair of blankets at 21 or marriage. To my son Richard [same items plus 2 pairs of sheets] at the age of 24. To my daughter Agnes Myles, wife of Edmund Myles, 65. To Richard and Henry Myles, sons of said Edmond Myles, 20s. apiece. Residue to wife Alyce, she to be executrix, "chargeing her to have care to the well bringing upp of my towe sonnes Henry and Richard and my daughter Alice in godly learning in the feare of god or to some other lawfull exercise and trade, as she shall thinke most conveniet." Wife to keep the reparations of all my messuages or tenements. Overseers: "my very frende and Neighbour" Reynold Basse and son Henry Bull. To Reynold Basse for his pains 40s. Witnesses: Richard Bull, [misplaced signature of testator], Reynold Basse, John Cranfeild "thelder," Edmond Salmon, Rycharde Crowche, Thomas Wratin, William Lee. (Prerogative Court of Canterbury, PROB 11/68)
     
     
      Richard Bull's will does not mention his daughter Elizabeth, wife of John Lawrence of St. Albans, co. Hertford, but Hertfordshire Feet of Fines show that he demised land to her husband in 1579, (The Herts Genealogist and Antiquary, Vol. 2) the year of her marriage, and her identity is proven by her husband's estate record.
     
     
      Richard Bull's Inquisition post mortem was taken at Hertford on 28 May 28 Elizabeth [1586] (abstract by: Peter Wilson Coldham):
     
     
      He held a messuage called Raffes at the west end of the town of Hertford; another called Blackemore in the parish of St. Andrews held of the Queen's Manor of Baylyhall, Hertford; messuages in Stapleford and Bengeo; a tenement called Bakers in Stapleford; [etc.].
     
     
      On 2 September 1585 the said Richard Bull of the town Hertford, gent., made his will bequeathing to Alice his wife all his tenement called Benwiche Hall in Stapleford and all his other estate in Stapleford and Bengeo during her life, then to his son Henry Bull and his heirs. His freehold called Bakers in the tenure of George Kinge and tenements held of the Manor Russelles were similarly devised. His messuage called Raffes was bequeathed to his wife Alice during her life and then to his son Richard Bull.
     
     
      The Said Richard Bull died on 14 September 27 Elizabeth [1585] at Hertford and his son and heir is Henry Bull, who was under age at the time of his father's death, ie., aged 20 on 1 January last. After her husband's death Alice Bull on 17 March 28 Elizabeth [1586] took to husband Anthony Garland. (Inquisition post mortem on Richard Bull of Hertford, PRO WARD 7/21/210.)"
