Dear Douglas Richardson,
First, thanks for a magnificent job in compiling 'Magna Carta Ancestry'. Can you help with a query please? I am looking for the will of Ida de Clinton who died in office as Abbess of Wroxall Abbey in 1325. Your page 514 says she dies testate but I wonder if you could tell me what the source is please and where I might see the will if it still exists. Thank you
Thank you both very much, most helpful.
(I meant as a defendant.)
In addition to the cited case, the same index lists the following case:
Plaintiff: Thomas de Hastang.
Defendant: The executors of the will of Ida late the wife of John de Clynton of Macstok and John son of John de Clynton.
T. 2 190d (Trinity term, year 2 (of Edward III), folio 190d)
An image of this case is here (4th from the top):
It names the executors of the testament of Ida as John de Clynton, William de Clynton, and Henry del Idle. John the son of John de Clynton is also named as a defendant.
