Notes for John KILBORNE
Of age in 1562 when his mother died. In April 1563 at Waterbeach, he surrendered his land to John Ballard, and likely moved away, as he did not appear when compelled to be present at the Waterbeach court in 1567 and his son William was christened at Wood Ditton in 1567. John appears on the Subsidy of 10 Elizabeth (1568) at Wood Ditton for taxes of 5s 10p on £7 in goods. in 1571/2 (13/14 Elizabeth) he paid 10s on £10, the highest in the parish.

John made his will 23 Sept 1591, describing himself as “of Saxon in the parish of Woodditton in the County of Cambridge yeoman”. Since the will was probated 22 Nov, it seems to have been made on his deathbed. However, it contains elaborate provisions for the distribution of his estate. See will notes for details. Kilborne (1992) thinks there are family tensions indicated, possibly due to the existance of children from two different wives. There is no record of a first wife, but children John and Joan were much older and received much less in the will. [642]
Will notes for John KILBORNE
Paraphrase of will in Kilbourne [642]

John, eldest son, gets lands in “Stragwell” (Stradishall).
Wife Anne gets a long list of properties in Saxon, Ditton and Cheveley in trust for sons Thomas and Andrew, their division after her death is specified.
Anne was to “keep, bring up and maintain” the two sons and to pay each 40s a year during her lifetime. If either dies before age 24 with no issue, the bequests go to their sisters Elizabeth, Margaret and Agatha. The sons also receive £20 at age 21.
Daugthers Agatha and Margaret got £50 at age 24.
Children of daughter Johann(Joan) were bequeathed £10 owed to John by Joan’s husband Walter Fison.
The poor of Wood Ditton got two cows.
Trustees if Anne were to die were Thomas Jackson and William Wimmarke. Supervisors were Walther Howlett and John Martyn.
Contesting the will got you cut off.
