Lionel Cole's records

JOHN COLE (1639-1708), butcher, of Westerham Upland.

John Cole was baptised in 1639, the son of James Cole, butcher, of Edenbridge. On 15th October 1667 John married Mary Chapman in Westerham and became a ratepayer there. On the death of his father John was left £5 by his father, in 1672.

In 1671 Henry Chapman, hardwareman, of Westerham, died ( In his will (Dra) he left:

John Cole set himself up as a butcher at Crockham Hill in the Upland part of Westerham, paying rates there from 1667 until 1699. In 1671 he was first mentioned in the manorial rolls of Westerham as a resident. In 1674 John held the office of borsholder of Westerham Upland. He was overseer of the poor for Westerham parish in 1676; the record shows that he was literate. From 1683 to 1685 he was churchwarden of Westerham parish. In 1691 he was Constable of Westerham & Edenbridge Hundred.

In 1678 Westerham parish paid John Cole 2s 6d for meat. In 1684 he was indicted at the Quarter Sessions for selling putrefied meat.

In 1672 Thomas Chapman of Orpington, yeoman, one of the sons and coheirs according to the custom of gavelkind, of William Chapman, late of Chelsfield, yeoman, deceased, in consideration of £30 paid by Henry Chapman of Crockenhill (which is not the same as Crockham Hill!) in the parish of Eynsford, yeoman, his brother, does acquit Henry Chapman of his claim to the two messuages called Snivers, 3 acres, in Westerham, and also of six pieces of land known as Westlands, 12 acres, in Westerham, all in the occupation of John Cole. It is clear from this that John Cole inherited certain lands in Crockham Hill from his father-in-law, who was a member of the Chapman family long established there.

In 1695 John Cole was assessed for his own property 1s 8d, for Stumblefields 1s 6d and for land occupied by widow Hartrup 10d. Stubberfields is perhaps Stumble Field (TA 336) to the west of Crockham Hill.

On December 15th 1707 John Cole made his will (PCC), and was buried on February 13th 1708 in Westerham churchyard.

Mary Cole who was buried on October 28th 1720 could be John's widow but could equally be his granddaughter.
