The term Alsnaline applies to the 16 acre "close" at Wharley End, Cranfield called GREAT AUSTEN ALLEN lying on the border of North Crawly, Buckinghamshire.

This Thomas Wheeler had 25 1/2 acres at Wharley End including 8 3/4 acres at Bailey Gates, also lying on the border with Buckinghamshire. IN addition to that , he held from George Purrier, another 8 1/4 acres with the house and "closes". No will has been found for this Thomas , the grouping of his children at Cranfield has been determined from working backwards from Richard and George and attributing those children of Thomas Wheeler who did not fit into the families of the other Thomas Wheeler's, this was done by the few remaining Wheeler descendents found in 1994 living in Cranfield from documents in their possessions.
