William Duckenfield Will
Posted by: Kevin Ashley (ID *****5800) Date: May 30, 2004 at 12:34:05
  of 44

In researching my ancestry and searching for Thomas Ashley in North Carolina, USA I came across a transcription of the will of William Duckenfield, formerly of Cheshire, in Great Britain, but now of Chowan Precinct, in North Carolina, dated May 17, 1720. (The same document spells the name as Duckinfield in other places.)

This will lists as relatives of William;

1) a brother named John
2) a cousin named Charles Barber
3) a brother named Sir Robert Duckenfield, Baronet
4) a son of Robert named Nathaniel
5) seven daughters of Robert named Mary, Anne, Susanna, Jane, Sarah, Katherine and Judith

It was witnessed by Thomas Ashley, Jno. Powell, Benjamin Soames, John I. C. Cherryholme, John Duckenfield, and Ed. Moseley.

Thomas Ashley is supposed to have married Ann Mary Duckenfield about 1701. Any information confirming or correcting that information would be appreciated. If anyone wishes to have a copy of the transcription of the will, send me an email.
