    Notes 
    • Mentioned in grandmother's will and father's will. His admin. in 1641 mentions his mother's husband, Richard Dive, of Boughton Malherbe, and Geoffrey Skeer.

      Raynold, lived at Egerton with his wife Jane - he is thought to have died without issue (see admin. C. Act 18 201 and 85).

      ADMINISTRATION of REGINALD FILMER, of Egerton
      (Act Books).

      Dated, 10/4/1641.

      The administration of the goods of REGINALD FILMER of the parish of Egerton, deceased, was lately, while he was still alive, committed to his widow, JANE FILMER, by Rufus Rogers, Surrogate, in the presence of Thomas Shindler, public notary, GALFRIDUS (GEOFFREY) SKEER of Doddington, yeoman, and RICHARD DIVE, of Boughton Malherbe, yeoman, are bound in £240.

      Inventory. £119 16s 8d.
      Reference. C. Act/18/201. (in Latin).
      Note. See 1637 Administration.

      RAYNOLD FILMER, son of ROBERT FILMER and JOANE SKEERE, died in 1641 at Doddington, possibly at the SKEERE family home which was located in that parish. It is thought that he may have been seriously ill for the last few years of his life as an administration was held whilst he was still alive. This administration is mentioned in the one that took place on his death in 1641 (C Act 18 201). At this latter administration, GEORGE SKEER and RICHARD DIVE were bound in the sum of £240 (C A 18 20), quite a large sum in those days. An inventory was taken which showed goods to the value of £119. 16. 8d. RAYNOLD may also have possessed a house in St. Martin's Lane, in the parish of St. Martin Ongar, in 1638, which was then valued at £26 (Inhabitants of London).


      Raynold, was clearly named after his grandfather, inheriting the family's land at Wichling and Bordfield (in Otterden). Like all Joane's children he would, however, have been brought up in the Dive family household at Boughton Malherbe and it was there that he married Jane Stuckberry in 1634.

      There seems to have been a daughter, Joane, of this marriage baptised at Egerton in 1636. Raynold died in 1641 at Doddington, possibly at the Skeere family home which was located in that parish. It is thought that he may have been seriously ill for the last few years of his life as an administration was held whilst he was still alive. This administration is mentioned in the one that took place on his death in 1641 (C Act 18 201). At this latter administration, George Skeer and Richard Dive were bound in the sum of £240 (C A 18 20), quite a large sum in those days. An inventory was taken which showed goods to the value of £119. 16. 8d. Raynold may also have possessed a house in St. Martin's Lane, in the parish of St. Martin Ongar, in 1638, which was then valued at £26 (Inhabitants of London).

      It looks as if Raynold did not have any other children. What happened to his daughter or with whom she was brought up is unknown. (It is just possible that she may have married Thomas Kingsnorth, a carpenter, in 1656, in which case she would have been living at Staplehurst; no firm evidence for this, however, has been located).
