The John who wrote the will left a widow Diana, and is said to have had an earlier wife Elizabeth, whose maiden name is unknown.
Does anyone know why John named his son John Lett ?
Was it his own mother’s maiden name ?Or the maiden name of one of his wives ?
Any information, no matter how slight, would be very helpful and much appreciated.
