About John de Fynemere

LDS Records - also - Below is copied from that site:


  • The earliest deed in the Filmer papers mentioning the name, Fynmere, is one executed in 1329 and reproduced below:

I, Roger Pistor of Lenham give etc. to John de Fynmere and Joan his wife and heirs of the said John all that my tenements which I lately purchased of Robert Godard lying in the vill of Otryngden, in a place called Fynmere round about the tenement of the said John de Fynmere etc. to hold all the aforesaid tenements by the services and customs thereof yearly of right due, for three marks and a half sterling. In witness whereof to this present charter I have set my seal on Monday, next before the Feast of All Saints, the third year of the reign of King Edward the third after the Conquest. These being witnesses - Laurance de 0tryngden, Philip de Otringden, the treasurer, and John his son, John Roberd, John de Herst, John Fernym, John his (sic), John Eustace, John and William Pollard, Adam the clerk, etc.

(October 31st, 1329)

It will be observed that not only is the person John de Fynmere mentioned but also the location of a place called Fynmere. The deed also seems to imply that by 1329 the place, Fynmere, was well established. However the exact location is not that well described. In later deeds of 1436 and 1467 the place 'Filmer' is said to contain in all some 40 acres, but no reference to its existence earlier than the fourteenth century has been found and it does not occur in Domesday Book.

Corroborative evidence for its existence, however, occurs in an entry in the Assize Roll of the Kent Keepers of the Peace in 1316/7. The relevant entry is reproduced below. The original is in Latin.

'Inquisition of the hundred of Middletone and bailiwick of Kay taken by oath of Willelmi de Hezsted (Highstead near Sittingbourne), Roberti de Wyntonia (Winchester), William Warde, Elie Cole, Ada Crops, Daielide Swantone, Laurencii de Orpendone, Johannis ate Hulle, Willelmi Vyn (Finn), Walteri de Wyntonia, Willelmi Godith, Johannis ate Gore de Baxtone, (Baxton in Bredgar), Roberti ate Grous, Johannis de Netherputte, Johannie Thomelyn & Walteri Crips who say on oath that William son of Robert Sometarius of Dodingtone and Thomas son of John de Fillemere de Oteringdene robbed John Thedwyn of two horses worth 26s 8d.

Assize Roll 398.
It is thought they were acquitted as they do not appear in the gaol delivery orders.
