of Tipton

Will dated August 3, 1757, proved January 28, 1762

From the Collections of a History of Staffordshire (1889) William Salt
Thomas Dudley of Tipton, eldest son of Edward and Anne, was possessed of a valuable estate at Tipton rich in coal and ironstone. He married Hannah Maria, daughter of Richard Keelinge of Sedgley, steward to Lord Dudley and Ward, and sister and co-heiress of John Keelinge of Summerhill in the parish of Kingswinford, Esq. She survived him and dying 23rd January, 1790, was buried at Kingswinford, 30th January, aged 73. He was buried at Kingswinford, 14th April, 1758, having made a will dated 3rd August, 1757, and proved in London, 28th January, 1762 (9 St. Eloy). To his loving wife Hannah Maria he gives his household goods and a legacy of 100. Also 200 to be equally divided among such of his brother William's children as should live to be 21. He appoints Joseph Green of Dudley, glassmaker, and John Bridgewater of the same, spinning-wheel maker, his trustees, and they were to raise out of his personal estate 4,500 for his children when 21. He devises his landed estates in Tipton and elsewhere to his eldest son Thomas for life and then to the heirs of his body in tail male with remainder, in default of male issue, to his second son John and his heirs, remainder to his brother William and his heirs. His wife and the said Joseph Green and John Bridgewater to be his executors and guardians of his children. In 1775 a private Act of Parliament was passed by which the entailed estates were vested in John Keelinge, Esq., of Summerhill, and John Gibbons, of the parish of Kingswinford, ironmonger, in trust for sale. The Act recites that the testator died soon after making his will, leaving three only children all then (1775) of full age, viz., Thomas, John, and Hannah Maria, the wife of James Male of Birmingham, ironmonger.
