In 1693 Thomas Nepton (1675-
Thomas Nepton of Great Ilford died on 26th September 1724 and was buried at Barking on 1st October. His will, dated 6th May 1718, was proved on 4th November 1724. Thomas wrote that Charles Carpenter, a poulter should have his stall at Leadenhall Market. He left everything else to his widow, Anne Nepton subject to a £20 annuity payable on her death to St. Leonard’s Shoreditch Charity School. Thomas’s property included a number of houses in Dunning's Alley at St. Botolph without Bishopsgate.
Anne remarried on 28th January 1728 to George Stringer, a poulter, at the newly rebuilt St. Paul’s Cathedral. Although Frogley states that Ann was buried in Barking, a quick glance at St Margaret’s burial register for May 1728 failed to show an entry for either an Ann Nepton or Ann Stringer.
