Wills PRO
SEAMARK,Charles,Leicestershire,England,July,1755 [see Seamark-Jeffs]

From the will main points


1. Mother Elizabeth Seamarks [thus taken as Elizabeth Jeffs - 487]

2. No children mentioned, his wifes name was Dorothy Seamarks [a loving wife]

3. He left most of his possesions to Brother in Law, Edward Jeffs and Edward's children Mary and Dorothy providing they reached 21, as the will was written in 1755 then the children born after 1732.

4. Also spoke of London and Sugar Refining looks like Martin Gebhart [Gobhart] of Blackfriars, familysearch does show a Gebhart family in Blackfriars in 1772

5. He left a small sum for his mother but I expect the expectation is for Edward to care.

6. He had land and cottages, he also seemed to have some money

Frances left her possessions to her four grandchildren;


Elizabeth who also acted as Executive


And the children of

xxxxxxx Seamark of Brigstock, Northants, guess would be David [or Daniel]

children being Alice, Francis and John Seamark



Leicestershire, England: Parish and Probate Records


1734 Seamark, Seamarke, Henry, Halstead Adm. [guess related : jeffsseamark.htm ]

Died in administration, the document is printed with spaces filled in £186 held and firmly bound unto the Right Revd Richard Lord Bishop of ??  Not a Will.

Charles Seamarke labourer and John Hawkins grocer or grazer executors

No mention of relationship but all going to Charles Seamarke the intesting part is the inventory including :

88 Sheep and Lambs £32 , 3 Cows and Calves £9 , 18 Sheep £8, Wool £10 , Clothing £1 [seems to be low] also seems to be a reference to .. other materials belonging to his shopp

Written 20th July 1734.



1746 Seamark, Charles, Halstead [guess related : jeffsseamark.htm ]

Will is of Charles Saymark of Halstead but son Charles Seamark  very clear spelling difference!! The main heir was Daughter Ellen Seamark [the proved part of the will states by 1746 Ellen married to Thomas ?Branson? of Tilton  : LDS note 1744 Elinor Seamark married Thomas Braunston, Leicester - again no proof]. Ellen was charged with handing out the money :

Charles Saymark son Charles 5 shillings, Charles Saymark grandson Charles Seamark half a crown. Ellen had to look after mother in a Christian way if mother outlived Charles Saymark. No other details - marks of Charles Semark [another clear spelling difference] , Tomas ?Coaly?, Thomas Bird and John Barsby.

Written 3rd January 1734, Proved May 1746

[seamark note: Braunston's in West Haddon Northants 1760's, a Seamark stronghold]

Will written 1908 and granted after death to Elizabeth on 26th October 1923



Mary Ann Seamark [see Northants]

Will written 3rd June 1891 , Granted 1903 to exec Mark W Seamark [see above will]


Eliza Jane Seamark [see Northants]


This one rather technical and I would really need to copy write to be sure 100% as it goes on and on about annual incomes etc below is from a 10 minute read


Wife of William Seamark , William to receive £30 on death after debts. Eliza's private account to pass to Florence Eugenie J Cox Known as Florance Passoff, the will also mentions Eliza's brother Alfred Simonds in case Florence has no husband or children.


Will written 7/1/1883


interesting part - 10 days later an amendment to say that Eliza and William had taken a £150 loan against real estate. Whilst it seemed at one point that William had to repay the £150 on death the next sentence seemed to let him off. Eliza was still going to allow William £30 on death


amendment 27/1/1883


Will granted in 1885 but only left a total of £25 gross,
