FAMILY GROUP RECORD OF
WILLIAM TIMS AND
ANN HEYNES

William Tims was christened 29 August 1546 in Cropredy, the son of John and Elizabeth Tims. He married Ann Heynes, the daughter of Roger and Margarett Heynes of Mollington, 5 May 1586 in Mollington, Oxfordshire.

William Tims marriage

Marriage record for William Tims and Ann Heynes in Mollington:
"William  Tyms and An Heynes were maried the vth of May"

Anne is mentioned in her father's will of 1599: "I give unto Anne Tims my daughter a sheepe." She is also mentioned in her sister-in-law Bridget Haynes' will of 1634: "I give to my sister in lawe Anne Tymes of Borton one gowne".


William is mentioned in a history of Cropredy: “Occasionally a man or woman fell ill and realised they would never work again. One solution was made in Bourton by William Tims the carpenter. His inventory reads as though he died in a one room hovel. The opposite was true. Here was a man who had leased a house which had been rebuilt in stone under a thatched roof. He owed money through not being able to work and passed on everything to his carpenter son in a legal deed made the 30th of December 1625. William then had no rent worries and his meat, drink, washing and nursing were taken care of. The Tims' home remained the same and presumably if William was cold, and the fire was lit, he took his place on the inglenook bench in the hall. One day he must have passed through this stage judging by his apparel. Was this just a night shirt and he was confined to bed? In William's chamber the now much reduced belongings were itemised following his burial on the 6th of January 1628/9 (if this was his burial date?)

William Tims burial

William left a will dated 1625:

"His apparell ijs

The family's wealth is not always evident, for often a great deal had been given away already, or exchanged to pay debts in the case of the carpenter Tims, and in some inventories all except the bedstead and bedding had gone, which it has been emphasised did not in this town indicate a hovel. The carpenter William Tims who made the deed of a "gift" to his son did so "by resone of my age and weekness" leaving his son to provide "all things necessary for my nourishment and food for my body divers years since" [MS.Will Pec. 52/3/41].”  The Town of Cropredy 1570 - 1640; Pamela Keegan

He left an inventory:
