Thomas Fowle & Johane ?

62800. Thomas Fowle & 62801. Johane ?   

~1480, Thomas born in Marden, co. Kent, England.

[Marden, with its abundant supply of timber, network of streams for water power, and suitability for raising sheep for wool, led to the development of a successful cloth industry in Kent.]

Thomas wrote his will: he stated in his will that his wife Johane was pregnant.

9/28–11/7/1514, Thomas died; buried at the cemetery of the church of St. Mighioll at Marden.

Family notes:

·         There is a 1400’s record of a Thomas Fowle, age 4, of Marden, Kent, killed in a game called “penny-prick” which involved the shooting of arrows. (S) Henrici VI Angliae regis miracula posturea, ed. Grosjean, pp. 37-8.

Children of Thomas and Johane:

i. Constance Fowle, born ~1512 in England.

ii. Richard Fowle (31400), born 1514 in England.

[Youngest of 2 children, he was born after his father died.]
