    Notes 
    • I. John Fereby, sold to Thomas Walsingham in 1433 eight acres of land near the manor of Chameynes in Paul's Cray (Webb, Miller, and Beckwith. "History of Chisehurst", p.l 14) He married Alice .... and had issue _ 1. Thomas Fereby (II)
      2.,3.,4. Three other sons, one of whom was perhaps William Ferry (sic), citizen and mercer of London, an executor of the will of Thomas Ballard, proved P.C.C.(14 Godyn) 1466.
      5. Alice, married firstly, John Perm, citizen and mercer of London, and Aldenham, Herts, and had issue three sons, John, Thomas, and Ralph, and two daughters, Alice and Margaret. She married secondy, John Newbury (Early Chancery Proceedings, b. 62, no. 430).
      6. Another daughter.
      The testament of John Fereby is dated 6 Nov. and his will was proved Holy Innocents Day 1454 (Rochester Wills, ii, 26, no probate act entered.) He desires to be buried "in the church of St. Paulinus on the south side of St. Catherine's chapel". There are bequests to the fabric of the church; to the poor on the day of his burial; to the rector for tithes forgotten; to the prior of Tonbridge; to the abbot of Lessness; to the altars of St. Catherine and St. Edmund; to John and Alice , sons of John Perm; and to the mother of John Fereby the younger. It appears from recitals in his will, made in the presence of Master John Sone, rector of St. Paul's Cray, that the feoffes of his lands in Kent
      included ((among 9 others)) John Fereby the younger; that he executed a deed "of a ceratin almshouse inSt. Paul's Cray"; that another deed executed between him and the abbot of Lessness that provided out of the issue of his manor in Lesnes-marsh, of which his son Thomas was enfeoffed, a chaplain should be found to celibrate in the chapel of St. Catherine in Paul's Cray church for twenty years after his death. Propperty in St. Mary Cray, Sotton (Suttton?), and Farningham is to be sold for the good of his soul; the residue of his lands in Kent is left to his wife Alice for life, with the remainder to his son Thomas. Witnesses are John Fereby the younger, William Hickock, Robert Foster, and Robert Aylemer.
      Thorpe writes in 1769 that in the upper end of the south aisle in Paul's Cray church, on a grave stone, there was a brass plate half torn off, with the following inscription in black letter:- "Hie jacet Johannes Fereby generosus, qui ob... Decembris Anno Domini MCCC..." (Registrum Roffense, p. 1002). Above the inscription were two plates of brass and the effigies of John Ferby and his wife; in 1769 the lower part of his effigy was torn away and that of his wife quite gone. Under his figure were four sons, and under the mark of her plate two daughters.
