Called "young John" in father's will
JOHN FROST of Glemsford and Hartest, Suffolk, England, was born about 1530-1535. He was a clothier as we can infer from his will. On 29 January 1558/9 at Glemsford, he married Ann Scott. She was the daughter of Richard Scott of Glemsford, also a clothier. Sometime after the birth of their last child, they moved to Hartest, the next village. There, on 30 July 1588, Anne, wife of John Frost, was buried. John Frost remarried, for when he died, he left a widow named Ellen. He died and was buried at Hartest 6 February 1609/10. His will, apparently a nuncupative one, was dated the same day he was buried, so we can assume he also died that day. An abstract of his will follows.
