Misc. Notes
According to Threlfall’s GMC50,772 John Mawle “of Stoke Nayland, Suffolk, England, was probably born about 1510-1515 and was probably the son of John Mawle, senior, who was buried at Stoke Nayland on 5 February 1560/61, aged 72. Christine, ‘wife of John Maull’, who was buried 9 May following, could have been the widow of the recently deceased John, or the wife of the younger man. In any event, the wife who survived John Mawle and died in 1586 was named Margaret.

“John Mawle was a prosperous clothier with considerable property in and around Nayland and across the Stour River in Essex County. She was possibly nee Abbes as is suggested by her will, in which case she was the daughter of George Abbes of Stoke Nayland who died testate in 1554, mentioning children under the age of 18 but not naming them. George Abbes also mentioned his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Abbes, and her children who were also under 18.

“The Thomas Mawle mentioned toward the end of John’s will was perhaps a brother. There had been Mawles living in Hornchurch, Essex, for several generations and so it is fairly sure that John descended from these.

“John Mawle and his wife both left wills, abstracts of which follow. John died late in 1579 and Margaret in 1586.”
