I have found a will for a William Tymmes, yeoman, of Sutton under Brailes, made on January 4, 1652. It was proven on June 17, 1653, in front of "the judge for the probate of wills and granting administration appointments" by Joane Boxe. Presumably, William died between those dates. In his will, he names his daughter Joane Boxe as his sole executrix and residuary beneficiary, gives small bequests to two grandchildren: Richard and William. There is a marriage occurring on January 10, 1638/39 between Richard Box and Joane Tymes: this is according to Ancestry; I have not been able to find it. In any event, this would likely be the couple. There is a record on Ancestry of a Joane Box buried Nov 16, 1660 in Bitton, Gloucestershire.
