#40;mid to late 1500s) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England

(First Generation - Scales Family)


ALL WE KNOW We know nothing of this couple, save their children. His name might have been "Richard", given that his son Andrew named his first son "Richard" and saved his own name for the next two boys. However, this is sheer speculation on my part.
