Wills of Halkes or close relations of Halkes on this tree due to the Halke connection transcribed so far (loads more to do, and most below need tidying and linking in to my tree)

Wills etc. I have but ...

(most in English glanced at to look for likely links, but I've not necessarily read every word yet so could have missed something) Ann of Canterbury - 1617 - any link unknown Edmund of Dover - 1587 - any link unknown Edmund of Canterbury - 1605 - any link unknown John of Aldington - 1594-5 - any link unknown John of Graveney - 1545-6 - any link unknown John of Lynsted - 1551 - any link unknown Nicholas of Aldington - 1560 - any link unknown Richard of Aldington - 1636 - any link unknown Robert of Aldington - 1491 - any link unknown, but not read it as in Latin Robert of Canterbury - 1499 - any link unknown, but not read it as in Latin Sampson of Sandwich - 1601 - any link unknown Thomas of Hollingbourne - 1487 - any link unknown, but not read it as in Latin Thomas (Hawkes) of Canterbury - 1603 - any link unknown William of Aldington - 1487 - any link unknown, but not read it as in Latin William of Canterbury - 1531 - any link unknown, but not read it as in Latin William of Lynsted - 1524 - any link unknown William of Allington [Aldington] - 1558 - any link unknown John of New Romney - 1547 - any link unknown Thomas of Hartlip - 1481 - any link unknown, but not read it as in Latin Norton of Bircholt - 1642 - Act, not will - PRC/3/36a/91 - I'm not transcribing at present because it's in Latin. Clearly mentions the will of his father, William, though indexed on Canterbury Probate Records database under Norton rather than William. William named Norton as his executor, but both were buried on the same day. My very limited knowledge of Latin means that I know it mentions widow Elizabeth, but I don't know whose; both father and son lefts widows called Elizabeth. Both also left daughters named Elizabeth; I think the one mentioned was probably William's daughter, as Norton's would have been far too young to act as an executrix or administrator, although sometimes children were appointed and others acted for them. Although I hope to learn enough Latin to translate some documents myself the potential confusion here and the document being short means I will probably pay to have it translated professionally.
