Hi Paul

Looking at the Smythson/Smithson Memoirs (Moulton etc), it could be misunderstood that Nicholas d. 1605, clearly the CCED has him as Vicar of Fewston until 1632.

There is a will for 1632 (7 Sept) but it is his wife Susannah's, did she also die in 1632? She asked that her body be buried at the discretion of her children, which may suggest Nicholas died before her! I can't find his will, which may or may not have a hint of his parentage.

However, there may be a link here, but a bit of a long-shot, this is the will of Agnes Smythson of Moulton (1599):
Quote
"WILL OF AGNES SMYTHSON OF MOULTON, 1599,
RICHMONDSHIRE EASTERN DEANERIES.
Agnes Smythson of Moulton in the pshhe of Middleton Tyas within
the Archdeanerie of Richmond, diocese of Chester, deceased. In
the tyme of hir sicknesse yet beinge of good and sounde memorie
upon the first daie of Bartholomew the apostle being the 24"' August
in the j^eare of o' L. God, 1599, did declare and expresse as hir last
will and testament in mann"" and forme as follow'*', viz. :
Unto Cuthbert Smithson, hir sonne, one hundreth pds. Unto John
Smithson, hir sonne, one hundreth markes, and 'unto Jane Smythson,
hir doughter, one hundreth markes.
Unto said Cuthbert Smythson one sylver salt and 10 sylver spoons.
Residue of his goodes and chattells thus not bequeathed unto
Nicholas Smythson, hir sonne, whom she appointed and maid Exor.
Whereof we whose names are subscribed are wytnesses.

Smythson."

May be worth checking out if this is the correct Nicholas.

Fewston is a fair distance south of Moulton (20-30 miles possibly).

Hi Paul

It does look as though he died in 1632, possibly just before his wife.

I wondered if you'd seen the Smythson of Moulton memoirs.

Hi Geoff,

Yes i have been reading this Smythson of Moulton memoirs. hes in there under fewston possible branch.

Nicholas Smythson spelling variance Nicholam Smythsoun was also Curate of the church of Thornton, before 1591.

Nicholas was Curate of the Church - St Leonard’s abt 1550 " the Church is in Thornton Le Street a parish, in the union of Thirsk, wapentake of Allertonshire, N. riding of York.

Does anyone have anything on this church and spot a mention of him.

any help would be great.

Thanks again Paul
