Willikam Danser


One of my ancestors on my dad's side is one William Danser of Winstone in Gloucestershire. Here's the earliest reference I can find for him, from the Winstone parish records of 12 Feb 1587 (Julian calendar):

I don't know what the first word is (I think it might be "Henry"), but the rest says:

"[?] Stockwell of rentcomb in seeking to rob men at the parke wale was wounded to day by William Danser and buryed in the churchyard of Wynstone the 12 of February"

No need for a court case, it seems.
