    • “ROBERT FISHER, born say 1495, is assumed to be the father of William Fisher who married Margerie Bert. Robert Fisher settled in Syleham (cum Essham) where his name appears in the 1524 Subsidy of Suffolk. In January 1547/8 he witnessed the will of Thomas Fulcher of the neighboring parish of Fressingfield.
      A Syleham deed has information about Robert and his son, William. The document is a lease, made 15 January 6 Elizabeth [1563/4] between Emery Tylney of Weybread esquire, lord of the manor of Monks Hall in Syleham, on the one hand, and William Fisher of Stradbroke, yeoman, on the other: “Witnesseth, that where the said William Fysher hath the day of the making hereof and holdeth to him and to his heirs of the said Emery as of the said manor of Monks hall by copy of court roll, accordiing to the custom of the said manor, one acre and half of land lying in Wygnotts Croft in Syleham aforesaid between the way leading to the church of Syleham aforesaid on the north part and the tenement and croft called Wygnotts on the south partrt, and one acre of meadow be it more or less lying next the Town meadow otherwise called Tunmanmeadow in Syleham aforesaid between the meadow of the said manor on the east part and the meadow late John Carter on the west part, two acres and half of meadow be it more or less in Syleham aforesaid lying in West meadow, one pightle called Pyggis pightle otherwise Pogs pightell in Syleham aforesaid containing by estimation one acre be it more or less, one piece of meadow in Syleham aforesaid containing by estimation half an acre and fourteen perches be it more or less, and one piece of meadow in Syleham aforesaid called Small doole containing by estimation half a rood be it more or less, which said premises late were in the tenure of one Robert Fisher Father of the said William Fisher, deceased.”
