It is surprising that I do not have a will for him. What I do have is a interesting mortgage between him and Frances Fidon of Shipston on Stour from June 2, 1807. It concerns some 500 pounds lent in July 1806 and a further 280 pounds lent with the instrument. The parties to the first transaction were Elizabeth Slatter, William Timms and William Gardener of Oxhill. The land was two messuages or tennements in Stourton, late in the occupation of William's deceased father Edward and Anne Steel and the March Close in Stowerton.

Query why he called Robert Harris his loving brother? I am aware that often this term meant in fact "brother in law." That would make Jane a Harris. For that reason, I have used the marriage of Edward Tymmes and Jane Harris of Paxford, in Blockley as their marriage. That all ties in with the other Tymmes marriages in Paxford in the early 1600's.
