Will of Francis FAWCONER, Kingscleare, Southampton, England, 1662
Source:  Henry F. Waters.  1885.  "Genealogical Gleanings in England."  New England Historical and Genealogical Record 39(Jan): 61-73.

The will was in one long main paragraph.  For improved readability, I have broken it into smaller paragraphs.  (Boldface added.)

The will contains considerable genealogical information.  I have translated this information into a graphical tree, which shows those Fawconer's connected to the testator, plus several Fawconer tree fragments of uncertain relationship to the testator.  To view the tree(s), click here
