63 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.
