John Disbrowe, of West Wickham, died 1530.
He must have been born in 1480s.
Son John Disbrowe, died 1574 of Eltisley,
ancestor of the Major General
(and also my ancestor)
Eltisley is in west Cambridge.
Son Henry Disbrowe, died 1559
of Saffron Walden, Essex.
ancestor of Nicholas Disbrowe,
and probably Walter, Henry,
and Peter, all immigrants
to New England.
Son Jeffrey, died 1589 of Burrough.
Did he have children ?
Son Thomas, no further details.
Also in East Cambridge in the early
16th Century we find other Disbrowe's.
Many in Wood Ditton, including
Christopher Disbrowe, children in
the 1570s. and Alice,Grace, and Ellen,
all married in the 1570s.
They would have been born in the
1550s or late 1540s.
Also Lawrence Disbrowe, married in
Dullingham in 1561.
How were the Wood Ditton Disbrowe's
and Lawrence related ?
Looking for the text of the wills of
John (1530) and Jeffrey (1588/9).
