John was the eldest of Peter's six children. He also had land at Teeton. The second son, John, was the inheritor of Grandfather Peter's farm when he died in 1772/3..
In 1766, Sarah died, and in 1768 John re-married, this time to a Sarah Clark. Two children were born to them - Robert (October, 1771) Bridget (???).
When John died in 1783/94, his estate was valued at £5000. The majority of this appears to have been left to Peter and Robert, but the others were provided for by various lump sums and annuities. William was to be given a lump sum of £200, plus £20 yearly. If the amount was not paid, he had the right to enter premises and take goods or animals to the same value until the rent was paid.
Len Martin's book
Text of John Martin's Will


Most of the material on the Martins comes from Glenis Crocker, with help from Robyn Lawther and Helen Millward. Glenis's material prepared for the Martin reunion she organised has been quoted directly here. They have traced the family back to the 16th century, by a lot of detective work on old wills.
Also Len Martin produced an excellent  book on Charles Henry Martin, Hannah Martin's brother

Glenis' fFTW file has John born at Teeton 1712 not Hollowell. LDS has no help.
