    Married Type: Planned to marry 
    • Judging from the Court of Chancery case between Thomas Becon and Margaret Steed, it appears that William and Margaret had planned to marry, when William's premature death put paid to this.
      The bill in the above case states that "Willm. in his life tyme had greate familiarity" with Margaret Steed, and refers to a possible 'treaty[contract?] of marriage'.

  • Wills (transcripts)
    The will of Thomas Becon (1596 - 1659)
    The will of William's father, Thomas Becon
    William, like his brother Theodore, was left just 5 shillings by his father.
    This contrasts with the £50 left to their sister Elizabeth, £40 each to their 5 half-siblings, and £5 left to their brother Thomas, the only one to have started a family when their father died, and who may have also benefited from a marriage settlement.
