Will of William Dare (b 1605)
(still in the possesion of the Somerset Historical Society, UK):
November 16, 1667.
"unto Gertrude my daughter in law the house she now lives in during her life lying in Lyme .....aforesaid. And after she dies I give the same unto William Dare her son and to his heirs forever."
(In her will, Gertrude left "one shillen to my son William Dare")
"Also I give and bequeath unto Nicholas Dare my son all that message and ... which I of late purchased of and from Thomas Dare and John Tamon lying within the fith of S. Lyme in the county of Devon called by the name Youall and all my estate and house and term therein -"
(Note Captain William Dare bequeathed the estate of Yawl to his son)
We believe we have located the estate - still called Yawl Farm - in Uplyme, a few kilometers inland from Lyme Regis. An old mill is also located nearby, which we believe was once run by the Dare family. The mill in Lyme Regis proper was definitely run by various Dare family members before this William Dare, according to court documents we have recovered. Of course a number of Dares were also elected Mayors of Lyme Regis dating back to 1265.
