In witness whereof I have sette my hande the daye and yeare above written, Oliver Dillnett his marke. Redd and delivered in the presents of Henrye Stokes and Richard Clark. ( Note: probated the 8th June 1608 ) He died on 20 May 1608 in Temple Ewell Kent.(529) He was married to Ellyn INNESANT on 9 Jan 1587 in Temple Ewell Kent.(530) Oliver was in fact married twice. His first marriage was on 27th July 1579 at Temple Ewell to a lady whose only name given is Christian. She died circa 1586 so as there were 7 years of marriage it is not unreasonable to assume that there was issue from that union. However Nicholas was baptised 13th Jan 1600 so he is obviously the issue of Oliver's second marriage to Ellyn Innesant which took place at Temple Ewell on January 9th 1587 and she was still living at the time of his death and was in fact the sole executrix of his will ( see Will Note) It is interesting that Oliver is described as " a poor householder " and yet his bequests are fairly substantial for his time.
