About Rebecca Winshipp (Barsham)

When William Barsham made his will his daughter Rebecca had been married to Edward Winship for just over three months. This explains the bequest to her of two parcels of land and half the household goods, which must have been her marriage portion, as it was equal to the legacy received by her younger, unmarried sister, and more than what was received by the other married daughters.
