    Biography 1551 
    • My earliest known ancestor died in Aylmerton where church records before 1697 have not survived. Thomas's widow was mentioned in the 1570 will of Nicholas Abbs. His son Lawrence died at Filby further down the coast in 1589

      Henry Sampson and his son Henry junior, both of Aylmerton, left wills in 1624 and 1632 as did Henry junior's brother-in-law Stephen Powle, but the Father of Henry senior is not known and could be any one of Thomas's five sons from two marriages. The missing parish records mean that dates of birth, marriages and burials for four or five generations are estimated until Thomas Sampson establishes his family at Blickling after the civil war. Even the births of his children are not recorded and only through his detailed will in 1660 are the names known.
