Notes

From http://www.jtbullock.com/Tree/Ed_Fuller.html#Redenhall

William Fuller is said to be in the ancestral line, but no proof exists. He was born about 1483 in Redenhall, Norfolk, England, the eldest child of at least five born to Alice and John Fuller Sr. Not much is known about him except what was written in 1901 in the The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, volume 55 on page 410:

“There were living in Redenhall, in 1482 and 1488, John and William Fuller, both freeholders, as they were then serving on a jury. In 1508, William Fuller and John Fuller, Jr., were named as grantees in a deed of land in Redenhall. This land was bounded on one side by ‘Free land of John Fuller.’ A copy of this deed may be seen in Egerton Mss., 2713, fol. 7, British Museum, London.”

It is believed that the said John Fuller Jr. was his brother.

William married about 1518 in Redenhall and they had at least three sons all born there – ancestor John, William, and Robert. It is not known when and where William Fuller died, but it was after 1526, probably in Redenhall.

William Fuller

"There are living in Redenhall, Norfolk, England in 1482 and 1488, John and William Fuller, both freeholders, as they were serving on a jury in 1508. Wiliam Fuller and John Fuller Jr. were named as grantees in a deed of land in Redenhall. This land was bounded on one side by the free land of John Fuller. A copy of this deed may be seen in the Edgerton Mns. 2713. vol. 7, British Museum. These Fullers... lived at Redenhall and owned estates there prior to 1482... John and William are the first ancestors of our Fuller family of whom at present we have a definite record of."

[NOTE] The area of the parish of Redenhall with Harleston is 1,610 acres, with a population, in 1831, of 1,784, less than one-fourth agricultural. Part of the town lies in the parish of Mendham, which is chiefly in Suffolk; the Norfolk portion of this parish has an area of 720 acres, with a population, in 1831, of 341, one-fourth agricultural; giving a total for Harleston of 2,330 acres, with a population of 2,125. The town consists of a main street along the Yarmouth road, and a convenient market-place on the south side of the main street. The 'middle row,' between the street and the market-place, is in the hamlet of Harleston, which is part of Redenhall parish. In this part is a chapel-of-ease, a plain building. There are three dissenting places of worship in the town. The river Waveney flows at a short distance to the south; there are three bridges over it in the neighbourhood. The manufacture of bombazines is carried on to a small extent: there is a well attended corn-market on Wednesday, and two considerable fairs, at which great numbers of Scotch cattle are sold. The parish church of Redenhall is situated on an elevation a mile from the town on the road to Yarmouth. It consists of a nave with two aisles, a chancel, and a fine western tower of perpendicular character. The tower was built A.D. 1460-1520, but the body of the church in the beginning of the fourteenth century. The living is a rectory, with the chapelry of Harleston annexed, of the clear yearly value of £803. There were in 1833, in the parish of Redenhall and the Norfolk portion of Mendham parish, two infant or dame schools, with 33 to 38 children; a national day and Sunday school, partly endowed, with 90 children in the week and 134 on Sundays; two day-schools, with 40 children; and one Sunday-school with 145 children. - [3]
