    • Henry Say, See, Sea or Atsea and daughters Millicent, Mary and Elizabeth:

      Most family genealogical records with the Atsea family as an ancestor have recorded daughter Mary, who married Edward Crafford or Crayford, but in fact Henry had three daughters, as indicated in the following land sale record:
      From Francis Chute, via e-mail,
      "«b»Bartletts alias Thoneton«/b» [on the Isle of Thanet in Kent] is a farm about a half mile westaward from Shoart which was likewise held of the manor of Downe Barton in socage, by fealty and rent. It was anciently the patrimony of the Chiches, and then of the Garlands by which name it passed by sale to Robert Sea, to whom and to Henry his son it was assured in fee, which latter on his father's death became wholly seized of it; he died without male issue, and his three daughters Millicent, Elizabeth and Mary became his co-heirs and entitled to it in coparcenary. Jerom Brett and Millicent above mentioned, his wife, by indenture, anno 5 Elizabeth, sold thier third part to William Norwood of Nash, as did Arthur Chute and Elizabeth, above mentioned, his wife, their third part, two years later".
      Source: Hasted, Edward, «i»The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent«/i». 1788-99, Volume IV, page 300.
      And regarding the same piece of property (note that the name of Millicent's husband has changed from Jerome Brett to William Blackenden), there is a "lawsuit" involving both Arthur and his uncle Philip Chute, although this should not be interpreted as a form of hostility. Francis Chute points out that one method of legalizing property exchanges was to stage a friendly lawsuit, to obtain a legal court ruling on the sale. As this "lawsuit" does not appear to have any negative impact on Arthur's relationship with his uncle - he later appears in Philip's will - this appears to be one of those "friendly" or "staged" lawsuits:
      "William BLACKENDEN, Millicent his wife, Edward CRAYFORD, Mary his wife, Arthur CHOWTE and Elizabeth his wife v. Philip CHOWTE, esquire. Detention of deeds relating to the manor of «b»Thornton _alias_ Bartletts«/b» (in St. Nicholas at Wade), Northolme, North Ryckett, and Madford (in Hemyock), and a messuage and lands in the manor of Mekynbroke (in Chislett, Herne and Hoath) and Madford, late of Henry Lee [this is meant to be "See"], esquire, deceased, father of the female complainant (sic)."

      1530 - Will of Rychard Crompton, Mercer of London - December 2, 1530
      "William Crompton of London, mercer, brother and executor of Richard Crompton, mercer. v. Henry See, gentleman, husband of Elizabeth, executrix and late the wife of the said Richard: Actions of debt on orphanage bonds on behalf of the children of the said Richard, part of whose estate has been withheld by defendant."
