  1. [S79] Will of George Mead, yeoman of Sawbridgeworth, dated 17 October 1700, proved 25 February 1708/1709 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury. (The National Archives, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, England. Reference: PROB11/508). [DOC0010/WIL0009].
    A very approximate date of birth is based upon the assumed date of birth of Rosamond's wife Hannah Mead (circa 1685) which is itself arrived at only with the knowledge that she was not yet twentyone years of age when mentioned in her father's will, dated 1700.
  2. [S79] Will of George Mead of Sawbridgeworth, Herts., yeoman, 1709.
    Hannah is mentioned in her father's will, written in 1700, where it is obvious that she is not married.
