        SIGNED SEALED AND DECLARED BY THE SAID JOHN PENLY IN THE PRESENCE OF ELIZABETH
        SMITH "X" HER MARK JOHN PANTING EDWD. WEBB.

        PROVED 6 MARCH 1727/28 BY THOMAS PENLY THE EXECUTOR.

        THE ABOVE JOHN PENLY WAS PROBABLY A GRANDSON OF THE FIRST JOHN PENLY OF HORSLEY,
        BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THE LINE CANNOT BE TRACED. THERE IS NO RECORD OF HIS


        BAPTISM, MARRIAGE OR BURIAL IN THE PARISH REGISTERS. SINCE HE HAD LIVED LONG
        ENOUGH TO BECOME A PROSPEROUS DYER AND TO AMASS QUITE A BIT OF PROPERTY, HE
        WOULD SEEM TO HAVE BEEN WELL ALONG IN YEARS WHEN HE DIED. HIS WIDOW, MARY PENLY,
        WAS MARRIED ON MARCH 19, 1729 TO THOMAS HARRIS OF AVENING AT NEWINGTON BAGPATH,
        GLOUCESTERSHIRE, BUT THERE IS NO FURTHER RECORD OF HER.

        ALL OF HIS CHILDREN, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WILLIAM WERE MINORS AT THE TIME OF
        HIS DEATH. NO BAPTISMAL RECORDS EXIST TO TELL US THEIR EXACT AGES. IN FACT,
        THERE IS NO FURTHER RECORD OF ANY OF THEM EXCEPT WILLIAM AND JOHN. WILLIAM MAY
        HAVE BEEN THE WILLIAM "PENDLEY" WHO MARRIED MARY WEBBAT NEARBY MINCHINHAMPTON ON
        OCTOBER 12, 1710. JOHN'S SON WILLIAM MOVED ACROSS THE HILLS TO THE NEIGHBOURING
        PARISH OF ULEY WHERE HE DIED IN 1749. THE BIRTHPLACE OF HIS CHILDREN THOMAS,
        JOHN, WILLIAM AND EDMUNC IS UNKNOWN, BUT THERE WERE BURIED IN ULEY, AND TWO OF
        THEM MARRIED AND HAD FAMILIES THERE ACCORDING THE THE ULEY PARISH REGISTERS.

        #2 John Penly

        JOHN PENLY, SON OF JOHN AND MARY PENLY OF HORSLEY, WAS BAPTIZED AS A "ADULT
        PERSON" THREE WEEKS PRIOR TO HIS MARRIAGE TO REBECCA PAVEY (SEPTEMBER 7, 1743).
        JOHN AND REBECCA LIVED ALL THEIR MARRIED LIFE IN NAILSWORTH AS FAR AS IS KNOWN,
        BUT THEY WERE BOTH BURIED IN NYMPSFIELD CHURCHYARD.

        This last John Penly was the father of Joseph, who was shanghied to Maine.

        One of Joseph's sons was Capt. John, who married Desiree Dingley and Julia
        Wagg.

      painter? 
      • In1734 there is a record of a payment (on account?) to William Farmiloe (presumably the same person as no other William is known at this period) of 1s "when whitening the Tower". There is a further payment of £1 10s to William "for whitening the Church". In 1745 William was paid £1 11s 6d for his "Bill".
      Court case 16 May 1748  [6
      Robert Poole suued William in Chancery for brech of contract to sell him "the Bell". 
      • [copy held] By a Bill in the Court of Chancery dated 16 May 1748 Robert Poole of Minchinhampton, Ironmonger, stated that he was seized (owned) to the use of himself and his heirs two dwellinghouses in Minchinhampton commonly known by the name of Arthur Hick's and with several buildings and their appurtenances of the yearly value of ten pounds [and four shillings?] worth to be sold for one hundred and fifty pounds..and Willm. Farmiloe of Minchinhmpton, Plaisterer, Son of William Farmiloe of the same place the Elder being also seized of certain dwellinghouses situated in Tetbury Street in the same parish of Minchinhampton and known by the name of the Bell...being of the yearly value of three pounds ten shillings..and Poole having mind to dispose of his said house called Arthur Hicks' and having signified such inclination to the said William Farmiloe..agreed to sell to Poole on St. Thomas' Day next for a consideration of ninety pounds William's house called the Bull in exchange for Poole's houses..and William paid one guinea as an earnest. There was no written treaty due to the lack of available lawyers. On the date agreed for completion Poole was present at the property ready to hand over keys and possession but William failed to appear and since has absconded or kept out of sight of Poole and has absolutely refused to perform the said agreement although William had declared in the presence and hearing of several persons he was very pleased with his bargain.
        Poole petitioned for relief and an order to William to perform the agreement.
        No judgment is recorded for this case and it may be that the matter was settled.

    • Notes 
      • This William Farmiloe is recorded in Minchinhampton PR as father of William Farmiloe, tentatively identified as William the schoolmaster.

        The author believes this person is the William Farmiloe who was the defendant in the Chancery action brought by Robert Poole in 1748 for the following reasons:
        i. The Chancery bill refers to William Farmiloe being the son of "William Farmiloe" the "Elder" of Minchinhampton. As William the schoolmaster of Minchinhampton was born about 1724, it seems unlikely that at age 23 or 24 he would have dealt with Poole regarding a property purchase case in Chancery;
        ii. The occupation given for William Farmiloe in the bill was "Plaisterer" fits with the occupation for William Farmiloe implied by the payment (qv) to him of 1s. recorded in the Churchwardens' accounts for 1734 "when whitening the Tower".

        If this is correct, the Chancery bill confirms that the William Farmiloe in this case was the William Farmiloe who was baptised in Minchinhampton on 7 June 1699 as the son of William Farmiloe.
