(?) atte Downe

      The surname has been observed in old documents as written as "atte Downe" suggesting this as the origin of A'Downe. From the 1600's it appears to have just become Downe.
Note the following transaction concerns one of the early A'Downes and could possibly identify the wife of this "unknown atte Downe":
"27 Sep 1516 Copy Surrender of Alice A Downe, widow, to use of Thomas Morley. Small parcel land (?belonging to) a cottage called Bonnetts on Rotherfield Hill".1
The manorial records suggest that the Downe/A'Downe family go further back in Rotherfield, as the court rolls for 1456 record the following:
"Wm A'Downe admitted after the death of Nicholas A'Downe to a messuage former Stonends by the rent of 8 1/2, of old assent, & to one perch of land to enlarge the old messuage taken out of the street, by rent of a farthing yearly 34HVI [1456]."2

For a cottage with a garden and a butcher’s shop which came to him upon the death of the said Barbara Primmer to hold to the said Henry Primmer, the grandson, his heirs and assigns forever. Note that Henry, the infant son, was not mentioned in his grandfather's will, but rather his father: "To son Thomas copyhold in the parish of Bishopstoke".
