    Biography
    • He was a church warden in 1564. His will was dated 24 Nov. 1568 and was proved at Bury St. Edmunds 31 May 1574. According to "Early Settlers of Watertown":
      Christopher's Will is dated Nov. 24, 1568; proved May 31, 1574. It makes no mention of his wife, who was probably deceased. He gives legacies in money to his son Thomas, dr. Joan Baylye. his godsons [grandsons] Ambrose and William Baylye, sons of Thomas [Thomas Baylye's Will is dated 1559, witnessed by Christopher and Robert Browne] ; and to his son Robert Browne, he gives " the lease of my fearme in as large and ampple manner as I hav it," and also all the rest of his estate, real and personal, and appoints him executor. Witnesses are John Andrear [? Andrew], Thomas Hamonde, Robert Brydges, James Hawton, and Robert Shaw, Clerk.
      Neither the Deans nor Swans are mentioned in this Will. It is not improbable that his elder brother, Robert, was still living, and in possession, but without heirs male, so that his son Thomas was heir presumptive to the Deans and Swans, under the first Christopher's Will. His son Thomas being thus provided for, would account for his younger son Robert being made principal legatee and executor.
