  • Notes  Married:
    • Marriage Settlement. Between
      (1) Sir John Pole of Bromley St Leonard, Middx
      (2) Francis Crocker of Lyneham
      (3) John Crocker son and heir apparent of Francis Crocker
      (4) Jane Pole daughter of John Pole.
      £1500 was to be paid to Francis in several instalments by Sir John Pole in return for all the properties of Lyneham, with Francis to retain the title of Lyneham esq and to receive an annuity from the said properties. These properties were to pass to the male heirs of the bodies of John and Joan, this being the eldest son, or the eldest son of the second son, or the eldest son of the third son etc. In default of any male heirs, the property was to pass back to Francis and his male heirs, and in default of this to the male heirs of John.
      Daughters were to receive £2000 to be equally divided amongst them, and John was to provide for the children of Francis, out of the profits of the estate.
      Francis states that he was the brother and heir of John Crocker deceased and in 1655 he took out a chancery cause against John's widow Elizabeth. She then had to convey the estate to the heir Francis, and he gave her £400 annuity for this.
      There is a mention of Philp Champernon having the tenure of Bittaford, in Plympton St Mary, and that Elizabeth paid the mortgage for this.
