377 He described himself as a fisherman of St Clements, Hastings. He left 10 shillings to the poor of St Clements and 5 shillings to the poor of All Saints. He left all his property to his wife, Margaret while she remained a widow and to his daughter, Elizabeth, after her death or marriage. If Elizabeth had no heirs, he left the property to his three sisters and their heirs - Elizabeth Wingfield, Anne, Morpeth and Judith Tomsett - after giving £5 to Friswith or Frideswide Tomsett, Judith's daughter. Mitchell, Thomas (I12432)
 
378 He described himself as a gentleman of All Saints Hastings but requested burial in the churchyard at Bexhill. He left 40 shillings to the poor of Bexhill and most of his real and personal estate, including a property in Clinch Green, Bexhill, to his "dear loving wife Ann" during his lifetime. After her death, the estate was to be sold and the proceeds divided between his children. He also made specific bequests to his son Thomas (once 21) and daughter Ann (wife of Isaac "Lansdale") of £50. Cramp, Samuel (I449)
 
379 He described himself as a yeoman of Bexhill. He left 40s to the poor of that parish and £280 to his daughter, Mary, the wife of Thomas Duke of Bexhill, yeoman.

380 He described himself as a yeoman of St Mary in the Castle, Sussex. He left 10 shillings to the poor of Crowhurst. He left the copyhold of property called Blackwells in Crowhurst to his second wife, Mary. He left £20 to his son, William, as payment plus interest for the legacy left him by his grandfather William Wimble, and a further £20, both payable when he was 21. He left £20 to his youngest son, John when 21. He left the residue of his estate to be divided between his daughters Mercy and Anne when they were 21 or married. His executors were his wife, Mary and son, William. He appointed as overseers, his brother in law Nicholas Weston (husband of his sister, Mercy) and "my Loveing kinsman John Fuller of Hollington". He stated that the profits from his freehold land should be used to support his children until they were 21 - presumably after then it would pass to his eldest son, William. Cramp, John (I1658)
 
381 He described himself as Alexander Weller the elder of Cranbrook, clothier and left property in Cranbrook, Hawkhurst, Goudhurst, Frittenden, Ruckinge and Newchurch, Kent. He made a bequest of 100 marks toward the erection of a House of Correction in Cranbrook or the making of "a Stocke to be ymployed to sett the poore on worke". He left items of clothing to his brother William Weller and "my brother Nicholas Anaway" and £5 to his sister Alice Pecke. He bequeathed his household stuff, two of his best cows and £100 to his wife, Elizabeth. He left £400 to his son Dence Weller and £200 to all but one of each of his other children - Richard, Stephen, Alexander, Agnes, Elizabeth and Katheren. The bequest to Agnes was dependent upon her not marrying Richard Waterman of Cranbrook. If she did so, he made provision so that Richard Waterman could not benefit from the money. He left his son Richard the lease of a property he had purchased from Richard Portriffe of Rye, Sussex and a further bequest of £5 was made to his brother, William. The residue of his goods was left to his son, John Weller whom he appointed executor. He appointed his brothers, John and Lawrence Weller overseers of the will, bequeathing each of them 40 shillings. The cash alone in these bequests would be worth over £210,000 in today's money.

He left an annual income to his wife, Elizabeth of £50 deriving from property in Cranbrook, Hawkhurst, Goudhurst, Frittenden, Ruckinge and Newchurch, Kent together with a messuage and garden in Cranbrook, occupied by Widow Portriffe. He bequeathed property in Goudhurst to his son, Dence and property in Cranbrook, Ruckinge and Newchurch to his son, John. His son, Richard received a dyehouse in Cranbrook, together with its copper and vessels which was occupied by Alexander's brother, John Weller, as well as two other properties in Cranbrook and lands in Frittenden. He left property in Cranbrook to his son, Stephen, some of which was also in the tenure of his brother, John. Finally, he left property to his son, Alexander in Cranbrook and Hawkhurst once he reached the age of 23.

The will was witnessed by Nicholas Anaway and Lawrence Weller, who was its scribe. 
Weller, Alexander (I2184)
 
382 He described himself as of the parish of Rolvinden, yeoman. He left Laurence Lansdell, his grandchild, son of his daughter Mary the wife of George Lansdell, £20 which George Lansdell his father owed Laurence Foster upon bond, to be paid to Laurence Lansdell when he was 24 together with a further £5. Foster, Lawrence (I768)

386 He died young. Westran, Thomas (I1326)
 
387 He divided his property and his goods between his wife, Sara and his son, Alexander, and left financial bequests to his daughters, Joan, Margaret and Ellen. Presumably he made no mention of his daughter Agnes because she was already married and no longer his responsibility. The lack of reference to his younger sons, Thomas and Laurence (mentioned in his widow's will) suggests they were under age and to be cared for using the legacy he left his wife. Weller, Laurence (I772)
 
388 He emigrated at the same time as his cousins, Fred and Douglas Dickson. Bull, John Kenneth Seymour (I8396)

399 He employed two men. Willcocks, Edward (I14005)
 
400 He enlisted on 5 April 1899 in Nottingham. His service number was 10259. It appears he converted from the Church of England to Wesleyan Methodism during his service in 1902. At the age of 18, he was just under 5 foot 7 with a fresh complexion, dark brown hair and hazel eyes. He had scars on his right eyebrow, the back of his head and inside his right knee. By the age of 22, his height had increased to 5 foot 8½ and he was able to swim. He was awarded the China Medal 1900 for service during the Boxer Rebellion and was paid the China Grant 1900 for wounds. He served on HMS Terrible, HMS Phoenix (at the North West Fort, Taku), HMS Glory (for Weihei Wei) and HMS Goliath. He was discharged on 5 November 1903 for the payment of £70.
