Reede

 Philip Reede. Of Wendron, will dated 8 Aug. 1605, proved 13 Dec. 1605 A.C.C. (he requested burial in Wendron church and made bequests to the poor of Wendron, Gwennap, Stithians and Redruth; he mentions his apprentice, who appears to have been a carpenter, therefore Philip himself was probably a carpenter; he was owed £6 by Mr Richard Bossawsack of Bossawsack in Constantine, who was one of the appraisers of his estate); inventory totalled £60. Married Joane … Administratrix of her husband's estate (all her children appear to have been minors in 1605). Children:
1. James Reed. See his page
2. John Reed. Named in his father's will (given his father's working tools). Taxed on goods worth £3 in Lay Subsidy of Gwennap 1628.
3. Katherin. Named in her father's will.


Email from Bob Reed.

I have Phillipe down as Philip Reed - b 1555 d 1605
His father is listed as John Reed - b 1533 d 1597,  Mother's name not known.
I have Joan down as Joane Bethersden - b 1555 d 1605 (probably just someone's guesswork as far as those dates are concerned)
Philip's will indicates Joan was alive in 1605 (LR)
Second email supplied a tree going further back. but Bob suggests it be treated with caution

Other trees trace back (way back) to a Brianus de Rede.
I can understand Bob's caution. The leap from Wendron to Suffolk is a big one (LR)
