Ralph Barlow (priest)

Ralph Barlow[1] was the Dean[2] of Wells[3] between 1621 and 1631.[4]

His will was proved on 7 November 1631. It is a long document, starting with a mini-sermon, listing his children and his ecclesiastical appointments; one wonders if the latter were more important to him than the former. He then bewails his (unnamed) wife's profligacy: pawning her petticoats & getting him to redeem them, and indulging in needless lawsuits. He names six children in his will, Thomas, John, Richard, Elizabeth, Ralph and Henry, all christened in the Cathedral in Winchester.[5]
