About Jennet Genet Fairbanks (Unknown)

Jennet - bur. Jan. 16, 1578/9, Halifax, Yorkshire. Her will (dated Jan. 13, 1578/9; proved May 3, 1582) names sons George and Edward, and daughters Agnes and Elizabeth. Due to the possible 30 year period between the birth of George and Edward, and the apparent 10 year gap between the birth of George and William, it may be that George was the son of Gilbert by a prior marriage. However, it is noted that Jennet uses "my son" to identify both George and Edward in her will.
