Misc. Notes
According to Threlfall’s GMC50356, “RICHARD BRACKETT (William, William) was probably born about 1550-1554 at Sudbury, Suffolk, England, where his family had lived for several generations. On 25 September, 1589, at All Saints Church, Sudbury, he married Alice Harper. This must have been a second marriage for him, for it was too late for the births of Richard, Rose, Peter and Tobias, who must have been his children, and certainly for Margerie, whose baptism is recorded. By Alice he had one or two children. Then she died and was buried on 17 May 1595 at Saint Peter’s in Sudbury. He then married for a third time, on 4 February 1601/2 at Long Melford, the widow Greengrasse. Long Melford is the next town to the north of Sudbury.

“He and his son, Richard, junior, were on a jury in Long Melford in 1609 and again on 8 June 1612. On 16 June 1617, Richard Brackett surrendered a tenement, which he had taken on 20 June 1614, so that it might be regranted to himself and his wife, Elizabeth. This amounted to a renewel of a farm lease. It would imply that Elizabeth was the former widow Greengrasse. Richard Bracket, senior, was buried on 26 May 1626 at Long Melford.” An account of Richard’s eight children follows. Threlfall’s sources are given as “Parish Registers; Bishop’s Transcripts; Probate Records at Bury Saint Edmunds.”357
