• Background Information. 81
The author of Ye Ole Atte Wode Annals mentions that there are no records of this John until his death in 1525. He notes that the will is very unusual since this John names four sons also named John. He names his wife, Denes, who made a will five years later. She shows that one John was called John Hewson and she names a Richard not named in her husband's will.

John, the elder, evidently had the estate and inherited quite a flock of sheep at Woodmanstone, where we find the will of a John Atwood several years later (1529), with some five children not name. Peter, 1346, bought land, Woodmanstone. Henry, got Wadden manor in Croyden Parish. John Hewson got Sanderstead Manor. John (Richard) seems to have had only personal property. The next two were not yet twenty; Edward got Beckenham lands, John, "the Younger" to the lands and buildings at Coulsdon. The daughter of the elder John and Denes was named Agnes. Agnes married John Ownstead, Senior, and had children, John, Ann and Joyce.

The earliest monuments are those of the Atwoods and Ownsteds, beginning with a brass, now mural, in the chancel to John Atwodde (d ed 1525) and Dyones his wife. The man is shown clean shaven, with bushy hair, in a long gown with deep furred sleeves and broad-toed shoes, his hands joined in prayer; the woman in like attitude, with kennel headdress, furred cuffs, jewelled or embroidered cincture, having three roses in the centre, and pendant chains or cords terminating in three bells below the knee. The inscription, in black letter, reads: 'Off yor charite pray for the soull of John A Wodde and Dyones his wyfe which John decessid the xxx day of July, Ao d[omini]. MoVcXXVo, on whos soul ihu have m'ci.'
