    Hello,

    Henry is my 6x great-grandfather. Little is known of his life other than:

    He had a number of children baptised in New Alresford between 1740 and 1751. Two were sons, Henry and Samuel.

    His aunt was Margaret Grigg, formerly Smith, who married Thomas Grigg in 1725/6 in Alresford.

    He is known to have had two nephews, William and Samuel Smith of Winchester.

    He had legal and financial troubles between 1771 and 1773, as was reported in the Reading Mercury and the Hampshire Chronicle.

    His wife was Mary.

    I would appreciate any information,

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Parish Records Alresford for Henry and Mary Streater as parents:
    Mary 2/8/1740
    Henry 28/4/1742
    Samuel 30/11/1743
    Martha 17/8/1745
    Hannah 12/8/1747
    Betty 4/10/1749
    Ann 8/11/1751
    There is also a genealogy book with family tree after Samuel Streater went to America around 1640ish. Its a bit convoluted and hard to follow but nothing caught my eye re any Henry or family in England.

    No, it's a difficult one. Some Streaters of New Alresford did migrate to the US, but I've yet to find any connection to Henry.

    As for baptisms, marriages and deaths he seems to totally disappear. I suppose it's possible that he died under a different name, seeing as he was bankrupt.

    I think this Henry Streater who died in 1765 is the chap you are chasing. According to the reports in the papers, Henry Streater's affairs dragged on after his death - I don't really understand what it was all about, but by 1773 the reports involve the "affairs of Richard, Thomas and Margaret Grigg" and the conduct of one James Cover The following back up his date of death -

    Salisbury and Winchester Journal 14th April 1766
    To be Sold by Auction, Thursday the 17th April, between the Hours of Two and Five of the Clock in the Afternoon, at the Swan Inn, Alresford, A Freehold Messuage or Tenement and Malt-House; with Barn, Stable and other convenient Outhouses; a large Garden, well planted with Fruit Trees, and about three Acres of Arable Land adjoining thereto, situate in the Dean, near the Town of New Alresford, and Late in the Occupation of Mr Henry Streater, deceased. Also two other Freehold or Dwelling Houses, and a large Garden behind the same, containing about Half an Acre, situate in Broad-Street, in the Town of New Alresford aforesaid, and now in the Occupation of Anthony Trapp and John Clinker. Also the Stock in Husbandry of the said Henry Streater, now remaining undisposed of; Together with all his Household Goods, Furniture and other Effects, at his late Dwelling-House, in the Dean at Alresford aforesaid. For Particulars enquire of Mr Knott, Attorney, Winchester; or Mr Henry Streater, of Alresford.

    Salisbury and Winchester Journal 9th February 1767
    THE Creditors of Henry Streater, late of New Alresford, in the County of Southampton, Yeoman, deceased, are desired to meet his Executor, on Thursday the 19th Day of Feb. 1767, at the Swan Inn, at Alresford aforesaid, at 12 o’clock, to receive a Proposal the Executors have to make, and put his Affairs upon some Footing for the general Benefit of all Parties claiming an Interest in his Effects. It is expected that those who do not attend, will acquiesce under what the others shall agree upon.

    The will of this Henry Streater is held at the Hampshire R.O.

    I may, of course, be totally wrong :rolleyes:

    Thanks! He was referred to as the late Henry Streater in one article, so I did consider that. Thank you very much.

    It appears the only way I can view the will is by visiting the archives.

    I think you’ll find that you can obtain a copy of the will from the Hampshire Record Office. They appear to cost £10.

    If you go to

    you will find a link to an order form.

    You can discover much from a will:
    • amount of £ left
    • to whom the £ was left
    • other assets such as houses, businesses, goods and chattels etc
    • the names of other family members of whom you might not be aware
    • stipulations as to how any bequests should be used
    to name just a few things. :)

    Then again, there might be very little in the will. You pays your money and takes your chance. ;)

    I have copies of various wills of my ancestors - some run to several pages and others to just one page. However, I would not be without any of them. :)

    Take it one step at a time. :) Get hold of a copy of the will first and see if there are any clues therein. :reading: That will help you not to go off at a tangent.... which many members will agree can easily be done! :rolleyes:
