William FROST was born 1 about 1500 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He died 2 in 1549 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. William married Phillipa.

WILLIAM FROST of Glemsford, county Suffolk, England, was probably born about 1495-1500. His wife was named Philippa. William died in the summer of 1549, testate. After his death, his widow remarried on 15 September 1552 at Glemsford, John Webb of Lidgate, which is about eight miles from Glemsford. He was a widower, his wife Rose having been buried at Lidgate on 11 February 1551/2. John and Philippa (___) (Frost) Webb had a daughter, Anna, baptized in 1553, so it is apparent that Philippa was probably horn after 1508. Philippa was buried at Lidgate on 20 January 1577/8 and John Webb on 25 July 1558.
