Notes for William Myles and Joan Alyncham

1545 William Myles of Moche Munden was taxed ij d. in the Hertfordshire subsidy. [1]

1558-1579 "Plaintiff: William Myles. Defendant: Thomas Cherye. Subject: property in Great Munden, Hertfordshire." [2]

Research Notes:

"William Miles or Myles of Great Munden, co. Hertford, yeoman, probably lived in the first half of the sixteenth century. He was taxed 2d. at "Moche Munden" [Great Munden] in the Lay Subsidy of 1545, and was the only member of the Miles family listed in the Subsidy of that parish. A Thomas Chery was taxed 6s. and another Thomas Chery was taxed 14d. in the same Subsidy at "Moche Munden." William Miles or Myles may have been descended from the "Mylys" of Westmill, co Hertford, whose pedigree is given in the De Banco Rolls, for Great Munden and Westmill are adjoining parishes. No Miles or Myles are listed at Westmill in the Subsidy of 1545, but William Miles (probably our man) and Joan his wife were deforciants in a fine at Westmill in 1556, William Austen and John Chery being querants." [3]

1547 A John Alyngham of Surrey wrote his will on September 27. He bequeathed to his wife Joan, to his daughters Joan, Alice, and Margaret, all unmarried, to his son Richard, under age 21, and in default to the children of his brother William Alyngham (land in dafault to William's son Herry Alyngham).
