Anne Atwood was a witness: In the court book of the manor of Twyford and Marwell, 1773: Henry Primmer an infant son of Thomas Primmer by Ann his wife and grandson of and heir to Henry Primmer by Barbara his wife (by Richard Wooll and William Collins now admitted to be his guardians). 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". This court book entry probably refers to this property but needs to be checked.2
