About Alice Tilden (Bigge)

Alice contested her husband's will on 9/26/1617 along with sons Nathaniel Tilden of Tenterden, Hopestill Tilden of the town of Sandwich, and Thomas Tilden and Freegift Tilden of Wye bringing suit against her son, executor Joseph Tilden.

On 3/27/1618, the sentence was passed that confirmed the original will, deeming that her husband was sane and in right mind when he signed his original will [Consistory Court of Canterbury].
