Who she was does not appear, unless she was sister of the John Apuke whom her husband named as his brother, i. e. brother in law. If so, her family name is perhaps represented by the modern Pooke."

  8. [S311] Charles Candee Baldwin, Baldwin Genealogy, p. 20 ff: "The following is an abstract of the will:
    [
    to be buried in the churchyard of Aston Clinton: 'To daughter Alis, 20 marks when married; to daughter Agnes, £12 when 19; to daughters Cicely and Letise, each 10£ when 19; to son John, farm at Dungrove, in parish of Chesham, when 23, but if he die before that, to son Henry; to son Richard, my tenements in Cholesbury, and the lands belonging thereto, when 23: to wife Ellen and son Henry, the rents of his said houses and lands towards bringing up his children; to Hughe Baldwin, his brother's son, £6 13s. 4d.'
    He gave small bequests to his godchildren, tenants and servants; to his son Henry, ten silver spoons and a maser; the rest of his personal estate, to his wife Ellen and son Henry equally, who are his executors. He makes the overseers of his will, his brothers John Baldwin and John A. puke.

    The will was proved in the Court of the Archdeaconry of Bucks Co , 21 Feby., 1552/3, by the executors named." From this we know that only children Alice and Henry were "of age."
