Early Settlers of Hampton, New Hampshire.  ...  Robert Page who died in July 1617, the son of Robert and Martha Page of Acle. The history of the Page family of Hampton, NH is well documented in "The English Ancestry of Robert Page of Hampton N.H." by George Walter Chamberlin, in the Register (66 [1912]:180-183), and elsewhere. Robert's birth date has been given as about 1577, but this is an estimate and may be a few years off the mark. The couple's last child was born in 1610.  The family resided at Ormesby St. Margaret, Hemsby and Ormesby St. Michael. In his will dated 1 July 1617 and proved 23 July following, Robert Page asked to be buried in the churchyaard of Ormesby St. Margaret, and left "unto Margaret Page my wife my house ... in Acle ... after her decease to Robert Page my son ..." He directed Robert to pay "to Thomas Page my son 5" within 2 years of the decease of "Margaret my wife,"" "to Rebecca my daughter 5" four years after Margaret's decease, and "unto Henry Page my son 5" six years after. He left "unto Francis Page my son 7," to be paid by the widow Margaret beginning when Francis reached the age of twenty-one and completed when he "accomplishe the age of 24 years," (Register 66 [1912]:181), Margaret's date of death is unknown, and she left no will.  Children (surname Page): i.

The WARDE Family: ... Research at the Norfolk Record Office, City Library, Norwich, England (hereinafter cited as NRP), into the records for the Flegg region has with certainty answered this question. The wife of Robert Page was Lucy Warde, the daughter of Francis and Susanna (Browne) Warde of Filbys. She had a younger sister Anne, born about 1622, who emigrated to N.E. as a servant of the Robert Page family in 1637 and later married Edward Colcord there. Another of the founding fathers of Hampton NH was a Thomas Warde, who may have been a brother of Lucy and Anne, although this remains unproven.  1.  Roger Warde of Filby, co. Norfolk, yeoman, was born perhaps about 1520, and was buried, as Roger Warde, the elder, at Filby, 4 July 1579.

A 1563 rental roll for Ormesby LISTS his name, confirming his holdings there (ibid., SC12:22/24). In his will, dated 8 May 1579 and proved at Norwich 26 Aug 1579 (Norfolk Consistory Court, hereinafter NCC, 276 Woodstock), Roger Ward of Filby, yeoman, requested that he be buried within the parish church of Filby and left 20s. for reparation of the church and  "to Sir Robert Stele, parson of Filby, 3s. 4d. for tithes forgotten ... to Thomas Ward my son my head messuage wherein I dwell in Filby sometimes Symon Garrard's which I purchased of Henry Marsham, by bond tenement caled Bykerton's, my dovehouse with the barn and the yard and a building commonly called Makin's yard which I purchased of Thomas Whyte of Marsham, and all other lands, tenements, pastures, feedings and breweries ... in Filby, Ormesby and Mautby, etc., except my messuage and tenement in Thrykby which I purchased of John Skott ... and except others hereinafter bequeathed to John Ward my son ... to my son John Ward my said messuage in Thrykby ... if either Thomas or John wish to sell their property the other to have right of first refusal ...

He married at Stokesly-with-Herringby, Norfolk 18 Nov 1566, Alyce ____ Pixton a widow with 2 or 3 children. She was robably the widow of Thomas Pixton, and was herself buried at Filby, 23 Mar 1608.  Robert Warde's name is foound in the 1593 and 1597 subsidy rolls for Filby (PRO, E179: 152/448; 153/509) and on the Ormesby Rental Roll (SC12: 12/52).
