On 25 June 1424, William Baker and his wife Joan sold land in Hadlow, East Peckham, and West Peckham, Kent.[78] Three years later Thomas Warde of Ticehurst granted to Ralph Shoeswell and his wife Elizabeth “the reversion of all the lands, which Johanna, wife of William Baker, his Mother, held for life in Ticehurst, except two pieces called Smythefeld & Orephetts, which William Warde his Grandfather had of Sir Robt. Passele, Knt.”[79] Additional records show interactions between Adam Baker, William Warde, and an earlier generation of Shoeswells and identify the location of Adam Baker’s land in Flimwell, Ticehurst."
