4274. John Malthous & 4275. Anne ? [Eng]
~1484, John born in England.
1/1506, “John Malthous, a relative newcomer to the community who had recently married one of Northallerton’s longtime brewers entered an action of debt on behalf of his wife, against Robert Founder whose wife likewise brewed. John claimed that the previouse December Robert’s wife had purchased five bushels of malted barley worth 3s, 9d. from his wife to be paid for on Christmas day, but she did not deliver the sum owed. The subsequent pleadings make clear that Robert’s wife had used that barley for three brewings, done apparently at Mistress Malthous’ house and using her equipment.” (S) Working Women in English Society, 1300-1620, by MacIntosh, 2005, P151.
