Anthony Paine lived at Bury St. Edmunds, gentleman, and had the Manor of Nowton, settled upon him by his brother Henry. He left a will dated Feb 16, 1606 , in which he directed his body to be buried in the chancel of Nowton church, near his late wife — gave his house to his son William, also his nest of ” bolls with cover all gilt ” having the arms of the Countess of Oxford upon it,” etc. His wife’s wedding ring he gave to Mary, daughter of Walter Paine,, all the remainder of his estate he gave to his son William, whom he appointed sole executor The Manor of Nowton which Anthony had received by devise from his brother Henry, was by him left to his grandson Anthony , son of John , who had died before his father. This, young Anthony conveyed to his uncle William, who thereby became as he is described in the Visitation ” Lord of the Manor-of Nowton.”
1. John Payne
John’s wife Francis Spring was baptized Jan 1558. Her father was Robert Spring. Francis was buried 28 Oct 1597 at Nowton, John was son and heir apparent of his father Anthony, but having died before his father, the descent of property to which he was heir passed to his son Anthony (39), who thus inherited the estate which was devised by Henry (6), to his brother Anthony (12). This included Children of John and Francis
i. Anthony Payne
2. Thomas Paine
Thomas Paine, was bapt. at St. Mary’s Bury, 16 Jan 1568, but was not named in his father’s will, executed Feb 16, 1606, and hence the conclusion that he had died without issue.
3. William PAYNE (See his page) I have been told that it has been proven that William Paine of Lavenham was not the son of Anthony Paine of Nowton in both the 1915 Register article as well as the 1925 Register article on the family. The William son of Antony married Elizabeth Sparrow and in 1612 they had only one child, a daughter Ann.
