JOHN APPLETON, of Little Waldingfield, if he was of age in 1433, was born avout 1412. He is said to have married Margaret Welling, presumably a daughter of Robert Welling of Lavenham, co. Suffolk. There was formerly a stone in the church at Little Waldingfield on which was inscribed in Latin a request to pray for the souls of John Appulton and Margaret his wife, which John died on April 9, A.D. 1481, and Margaret in July, 1468. (P) On March 14m 1433, William Ryngefeld of Little Waldingfield granted to John Apilton, jr., and others the lands and tenements in Great and Little Waldingfield called Holbrokes. This was the manor of Holbrook Hall which remained the home of the Appleton family for two centuries. Robert Wellyng of Lavenham leased to John Appulton and others a tenement called Smythis with a garden and two crofts of land in Great Waldingfield on May 8, 20 Henry VI (1442). (P) Possibly the year of his death on his tomb stone has been incorrectly transcribed, for there is a lease of the year 1483 by Alexabder Cressener, Richard Rysing and John Appulton, sr., of Great Waldingfield, to Thomas Appulton, Margaret, his wife, and others of two closes in Great Waldingfield.
Had a son John who married Alice Malchier. The Appletons were at Wldingfield until at least the early 17th century it seems.
