John Billing 1
of Weasenham All Saints 2
died circa November 1568, (based on will probate date)
buried 23 October 1569, Weasenham All Saints 3
will dated (no date given)
and proved 19 November 1568
He is the father of James Billing baptised Weasenham All Saints
in 1568.

In his will proved 1568 he lists his sons as 'John my Eldest Son',
'John my second son', 'Thomas my third son', and 'James my
youngest son' but makes no mention of any daughters.

Presumably either John the second son or Thomas the third son
was the father of the Giles Billing mentioned by John Billing the
Elder in his will of 1730 as 'my nephew Giles Billing ... my heyer
by the common lawes of this realme ...'

I find a discrepancy between his date of burial and the date his
will was proved. I will need to check the burial entry again to
check that (31 July 2002).
