Note: Henry may have been the son of Thomas Woods GLASPOOLE who m a Miss BEDFORD 1665 probably in Gt Yarmouth. This would account for the name of Henry Bedford Glasspoole below.

and see FRARY branch here

Note: These were my 7 x great grandparents. William (a butcher) and Rebecca ( dau of William FRARYE and Elizabeth BARAFAR) lived for a while in Wapping, returning to Lowestoft, perhaps, to escape the plague. At some stage William was living in Gt Yarmouth, for he was the joint guarantor on 27th Oct 1691 with Robert SEAMAN, a shipwright, of a settlement bond for a Robert SPECIALL, woolcomber previously of Norwich and his wife and family: William is recorded (YC/35/155) as a pulley maker.
William MEWSE, butcher is recorded in 1686 in the manor rolls as buying the copyhold of no 71 High Street This was on the corner of High St and Rants Score - in later years some tenement houses were built in the rear of the garden and became 1 - 5 Rants Score, dwelt in by William's descendants. When William died, Ruth married Simon CANHAM 31 Jan 1706 ( This is the brother of Elizabeth CANHAM who married Thomas MEWSE in 1705)
Finally a choice bit of scandal! William was fined in 1686 for blocking a drain (presumably a ditch) with sheeps' heads! Archaeological digging in the garden behind no 71 High St revealed huge amounts of bones, all showing the usual signs of butchery

Note: Anne was the daughter of Thomas MORSE (b 1744 d 1844 aged 100)
One of her brothers, Thomas Morse had a son Frederick (b 1820 d 1911) who, with partner Henry Glasspoole WOODS formed a brewery company called "Morse and Woods" and occupied the Lowestoft Porcelain factory premises. You can see the pages for Lowestoft Porcelain

Thomas and Ann possessed a farm in the parish of Blundeston-cum-Flixton, and one wonders, since they had no children, if this might have been the same property later occupied by the Morse family. An 1879 report from the Ipswich Registry Office states that both Thomas and Anne had died at Blundeston Hall and that the will of Anne Glasspoole was proved in London in July 1853 and is on record at Somerset House, and that the will of Thomas Glasspoole would also have been proved in London. Thomas Glasspoole Esq of Blundeston had his residence on the road from Lowestoft to Yarmouth. Thomas could not have owned Blundeston Hall, which was held by the Woods family since 1767, so must have held one of the other farms in the parish.

His niece was wife of John Jex WOODS who was an owner of Blundeston Hall and therefore a neighbour. Mrs.Anne Glasspoole, the widow of Thomas, was living in 1851 in a cottage on the Blundeston Hall property in her old age (Ref: ?). Prior to this, in 1844, Ann Glasspoole appears as a farmer in Blundeston . The will of Thomas Glasspoole of Blundeston, dated 3 June 1835 with a codicil apparently made the same day, was proved 6 May 1840 by the oaths of his relict Ann Glasspoole, John Jex Woods, and the testatorÍs nephew Thomas UTTON, the executors. In it he disposes of property both freehold and copyhold in Blundeston and Aldeby, and names a large number of relatives since he himself had apparently no children. He also makes provisions for his farming implements, cattle, horses and sheep, crops of all kinds, and everything related to the farming business, in addition to his household goods, furniture and linen, wine and liquors, all his dairy and brewing utensils, all his books, prints and pictures, and various sums of money and investments. The main beneficiaries were his wife Ann for her benefit in her lifetime, and his nephews John Jex Woods and Thomas Utton, and the surviving children of his late brother John Glasspoole. Another nephew, William Utton, was removed by a codicil having gone to America (Ref: PRO will: Thomas Glasspoole). Anne Glasspoole (nee Morse), the widow of Thomas, also made a will, dated 20 May 1849 with codicils 1 July and 7 July 1849, which was witnessed by William W. Woods and Henry Jex Woods, and proved 29 March 1853. She mentions her friend Mr John Jex Woods of Oulton, the executor, and her brothers, Mr James Morse of Swaffham, Thomas Morse and John Morse [Ref: PRO will: Anne Glasspoole].

Thomas was a member of the Mutford and Lothingland Association for prosecuting felons, membership of which was advertised in the Ipswich Journal of Feb 27 1836, Feb 22 1837 and Mar 3 1838. He was also one of the executors to Thomas WOODS, and published advertisements in the Ipswich Journal of 25 Feb and 3 Mar 1837 as follows:

Commutation of tithes We the undersigned being Landowners, or duly authorized agents of landowners within the Parish of Blundeston, in the county of Suffolk whose interest is not less than one fourth part of the lands subject to Tithes in the said parish, do by this notice inn writing under our hands, call a parochial meeting of land owners and tithe owners within the limits of the said Parish for the purpose of making an agreement of the general Commutation of tithes within the limits of the said parish pursuant to the provisions of an Act, passed in the 6th and 7th years of the Reign of his present Majesty, intitled, "An Act for the commutation of Tithes in England and Wales." And we do hereby also give notice that such meeting will be held at the School house, in the said parish, on Thursday the sixteenth day of March next at the hour of eleven in the forenoon. Given under our hands this twenty second day of February one thousand eight hundred and thirty seven.

25 Henry GLASSPOOLE m Mary HARRIS abt 1765

Note: Henry lived for a time at Burgh Castle. Beryl Platts notes that John Glasspoole (1761-1825), the son of John Bedford Glasspoole who follows next, was living at Burgh Castle at the time of his marriage to Elizabeth Coote, and thinks he must have been there helping his uncle Henry Glasspoole to farm. She has compiled a table (which however I do not have) for a Glasspoole family that later lived at Belton Hall and also owned Caldecot Hall in Fritton, and who were descended from this Henry and Mary (Harris) Glasspoole. Henry Glasspoole of Belton in the county of Suffolk, gentleman, made a will on 2 June 1821, which was proved at London on 3 January 1825, the executors being his wife Mary, his son George Glasspoole, and his daughter Mary Glasspoole. In it he disposed of his lands, messuages, dwelling houses, and tenement and heredits lying in Belton, which at that time were in his own occupation and those of his tenants. These were to pass to his wife and then his daughter and any issue she may have during their lifetimes and finally to his son George Glasspoole (who presumably already had substantial property of his own). Also mentioned in his will were Catherine Hudson, Mary Ann Glasspoole, and Catherine Maria Glasspoole, his granddaughters, whose maintenance and education was provided for in the will until she reaches the age of twenty one. For this purpose several large legacies of 1500 pounds each were set aside. Among the personal effects disposed of were his china and silver, while the residue of his estate was to go to his son George subject to his wife's use in her lifetime

From 1770 tp 1787 Mr. H. (Henry) Glasspoole, who was a large rate- payer, continued to be the only Churchwarden of Burgh Castle, Suffolk. After him, in 1789, Mr John Neslen became Churchwarden, followed by Mr George Neave, when Mr John Glasspoole took office. John Glasspoole was then Churchwarden of Burgh Castle from 1791-1799. Although no statement of their relationship has been found there is hardly any doubt that this Henry Glasspoole of Belton Hall was the uncle of this John Glasspoole who was son of his probable brother John (Ref: pem comment). In 1803 Henry Glasspoole of Caldecot-hall, which he held from the President and Fellows of Mary Magdalen College, Oxford, the ultimate owners, appears in a list of names of the several persons acting as Gamekeepers according to the system of deputations or appointments resulting from an Act of Parliament passed in the 31st year of the then king's reign

27 William GLASSPOOLE m Judith BRAME (b 1746 Lound d 4 Jun 1809 Somerleyton) 12 Feb 1765 Somerleyton (by licence) [1764 in Boyd]

Note: William and Judith Glasspoole apparently lived first in Burgh Castle, then in Somerleyton parish, and (from before 1773) in Blundeston parish before settling in South Wootten, Norfolk. This William appears in Blundeston documents in 1775 and 1781, having undertaken to pay the rental of the Blundeston "Town Pightle" and adjoining tenements (presumably for the benefit of the poor) for a term ending in 1781, and one of these documents bears his signature. Sometime after 1788 he and his family moved to Norfolk where the family seems to have had property all along. William Glasspoole made his will in January 1802 with a codicil in 1806, which was proved 30 July 1807. In it he disposed of his messuages, tenements, and hereditaments both freehold and copyhold, in Somerleyton, and names various members of his immediate family. William and Judith (Brame) Glasspoole had 11 children, the first three baptised in Somerleyton, and the rest in Blundeston.

In the administration bond of 11 Dec 1816 for the estate of John Bream (sic) Glasspoole, late of South Wootton who died intestate without heirs, 57 Henry appears as next of kin and brother. The estate was valued at under £300. Signatories to the bond were Henry Glasspoole, Thomas CLOWES of Caister Norfolk, solicitor and Joseph LANCASTER of Gt Yarmouth, gentleman.

43 John GLASSPOOLE m (a) Elizabeth COOTE (b 1765 d 14 Dec 1798 Somerleyton aged 33) 25 Oct 1787 Somerleyton [Boyd] (b) Anne ARNOLD (1769 to 28 Nov 1816 Somerleyton aged 47 [MI]) spinster, 14 Oct 1800 by licence Lowestoft

Note: Elizabeth was the daughter of William and Elizabeth COOTE of Somerleyton Hall. The wedding (by licence) may have taken place at Burgh Castle, although recorded at Somerleyton. William died 6 Mar 1814 aged 77 and Elizabeth d 2 Apr 1805 aged 60 both in Somerleyton. William COOTE may have married again as a widower: in 1813 in Ashby the ratebook records the name "Widow Coote", evidently one of the landowners of the parish.
John Glasspoole was said to be "of Burgh Castle" at his wedding to Elizabeth, and after apparently living in Somerleyton for a while settled in Manor House Farm Herringfleet from 1800 to 1812. He was a churchwarden in 1791 to 1804, and seems to have been followed as such by an un-named son from 1817 to 1822, although one source suggests that he remained churchwarden until 1825. Since there are usually two churchwardens, it is possible that they were both in this post. It is recorded that 'in 1799 the Clerk (Mr Glasspoole) receives 'on account' 5 shillings, presently 2s.6d., and finally wages due 7s.6d. Poor man, was he badly off, or had the Churchwarden no money in hand?: It was a wintry time, for on February 27 he paid Henry Pope 2s.6d. for flinging snow out of the Church path
According to his grandson, Arnold George Glasspoole, John left considerable property in his will which took several years to administer.
Ann Arnold was already living with the family when Elizabeth died, and thus became the carer if not the de facto mother at her death. Was Ann a nurse?

John is recorded in the Ipswich Journal of 13 Dec 1800 as donating £1. 1. 0 to the provision of a lifeboat for the Suffolk coast. He was also a member of the Mutford and Lothingland Association for prosecuting felons, membership of which was advertised in the Ipswich Journal of Feb 27 1836.

Note: George Glasspoole, son of Henry Glasspoole of Burgh Castle and his wife Mary, is mentioned in his father's will made 1821 and proved 1825. He lived and farmed at Caldecot Hall in Fritton. George Glasspoole, of Fritton in the county of Suffolk, gentleman, made his will on 10 January 1838, which was proved at London 4 January 1839 by the oaths of George Glasspoole, his son, and James Larkman, his son-in-law, two of the executors, the other executor being his wife Sarah Glasspoole for whom the same was reserved. In his will he disposed of his property in Fritton, property he had previously purchased in Gorleston and Bradwell, and the family property in Belton which was then in the use of his sister, Mrs Bell, in her lifetime but to revert to her brother or his heirs on her decease.

George was a member of the Mutford and Lothingland Association for prosecuting felons, membership of which was advertised in the Ipswich Journal of Feb 27 1836, Feb 22 1837 and Mar 3 1838. (the last three years of his life) [Thankd to Giles Colchester for this]

[Bury & Norwich Post 27 Oct 1841].

On 10 Jan 1842 he was awarded the silver cup given by Sir E K Lacon & Co for the best barley [Bury & Norwich Post]. His interest in agriculture is evidenced by a report in the Bury & Norwich Post of 2 Jan 1839 whenit was reported that he was "endeavouring to create a new breed between the Abyssinian sheep, whose coat is a black hair and the Leicesterone of which...had a coat a mixture of Black or rather brown wool and hair "
