NEEDHAM , Ralph - of Stadon (nr Buxton), parish of Bakewell, 15 Feb 1685.
[described in his inventory as a yeoman]
This will does not have a very logical approach. He wishes to be buried with his ancestors, in the ground in the church or chappell at Chelmorton;   he then starts by leaving lots of household goods that are in the house, parlour & chamber at Stadon to his son & "heir apparent" Ralph who is to pay his sister Mary £25 when he becomes 21;   next he leaves his messuages & buildings in the fields around Stadon & Cowdale i/t/p Bakewell & Foxlow i/t/p Hartington to the said Ralph;   then he leaves "his friend" ffrancis NEEDHAM all his messuage in Buxton called "Willshatts? House" along with buildings, barns, stables & smithy "now in the hands of widdow HADFIELD";   he gives to his youngest son Edward NEEDHAM his half of the messuage, buildings &c. bought betwixt him & his brother ffrancis NEEDHAM from Mr. MOOREWOOD of Bakewell lying in Buxton;   his daughter Mary is to have the sum of ------- & fifteen pounds now in the hands of Thomas EYRE of Hassop;   his wife Sarah is to have the remainder provided she remains "solo", but if she remarries this is to be divided among his four children[1];   he "abates" 40/- of rent that Robert LONGDEN owes for the land holds at Stadon.[2] 
Executors:  brother ffrancis NEEDHAM & his nephew Humphrey NEEDHAM.[3] 
Witnesses:  George GOODWIN,   Edward CLAYTON (whose mark is an E lying face down),   & William HEATHCOTE. 
Inventory made by:  John BUXTON, yeoman of Chelmorton,   George GOODWIN, yeoman of Cowdale,   Hugh BROCKLEHURST, husbandman, of Burbage,   & Thomas MOREWOOD, yeoman of Fairfield on 23 Feb 1685/6.[4]
There is a whole sheet that is unreadable that is dated 13 Apr 1686, signed in the manner of a probate grant by Thomas WILSON sur. at Bakewell. He was buried at Chelmorton 20 Feb 1685/6. 
Transcriber's Notes  [1] I can only account for 3 children named in the will - Ralph, Mary & Edward.
[2] This land is just S. of the old Buxton field system, about 1,200ft above sea-level on the lime-stone plateau with very few trees. It is separated by the Buxton to Ashbourne road. Staden is easy to place but Foxlow more widespread.
[3] It does not say whose son Humphry is or if ffrancis NEEDHAM, "my friend" is the same person as ffrances NEEDHAM my brother.
[4] He seems to have had a comfortable life style. The inventory accounted for £153-00-04d. The assessors appear to have had to travel around to account for goods & stock in various locations. They do not list furniture by room but there was 1 bedstock worth £1-10-0d & an abundance of bedding & plenty of cooking appliances. There is linen cloth & woolin yarn worth &1-10-0d. Even though it is 23rd Feb there is still 14/- of wheat, barley & malt. He has boards & wheels. He has 118 sheep worth £23, & cattle in three separate places worth £18, £8-10-0d & £4, hens & a rooster 6/-, 2 oxen £10, a mare, bridle & saddle £5. Money is owed to him by only three people - Robert SWINDELL? £8-10-0d, Geeorge LONGDEN of Stadon £6, & William SMITH of Cowlow £6.

108 William NEEDHAM of Pool, Sheen, Staffordshire, Yeoman, 7 Jul 1828. Died 23 Jul 1829.
Probate 27 Jan 1829. 
The document starts by referring to an indenture of Lease & Release dated 15 & 16 Dec 1817 made between himself in the first part, his wife Elizabeth in the second part & John WARDLE late of Sheen, deceased in the third part of his freehold estate called  Pool  & other messuages of which William & Elizabeth are to have the use until their decease & that this must be written into his will & witnessed by 3 witnesses. I (Val) have not found any other information that helps me understand why, when or how much was the value of the estate but fairly large sums seem to have been involved. There is a mortuage of £280 to be paid, he leaves legacies as follows:- to William GOULD the son of Josiah GOULD of Oaken Clough who was a faithful servant during William's illness, his servant Samuel JOHNSON £120, Samuels wife Sarah JOHNSON £50 & Samuel's children Samuel, Hannah, Thomas, Mary, Ralph, & William £100 each when they come of age or marry & the remainder to his nephew Samuel NEEDHAM son of his brother Joseph.
