About John Martyn

JOHN MARTYN born abt. 1575 in Sherford, Devonshire (d. 1629/30) of Barnham, Suffolk. John died between 28 Dec 1629, when his will is dated, and 8 Nov 1630, when it was proved. His wife predeceased him.

"John MARTYN called himself a cook, an occupation which suggests that he may have been employed in one of the two manors in Barnham (England) during that time, Calthorp Hall Manor or Baggot's Manor. (co. Suffolk)" (3)

In his will, he calls himself a cook of Barnham. He left his son Thomas his little house next to the gate with its ground and yard. After Thomas's death, the house was to go to his son John. He also left John part of a house on the condition that he pay £16 to the rest of his brothers and sisters and £4 to his son-in-law Henry Write's daughter Judy. He specified an interest rate of one percent and listed the brothers and sisters as Anne, the wife of Robert Buller, Thomas, Magdalene Martyn and William. His son John was his executor.
