AJ Aveling Thomas made his will in 1694 in which he mentions a daughter Elizabeth Speechley (married Robert Speechley 26th March 1693) and a daughter Frances.

He bought the property at Low Cross from Luke Salmon and Elizabeth his wife on March 16th 1677. His cousin William Aveling bought the ajoining property from William Burnham on April 24th 1679. both these properties can be traced down 316 years to the present owner Mr Oldfield a member of the Whittlesey Historical Society.

It was Jean Clucas who descends from Thomas who searched the Manor Rolls and found the above information about the properties in Low Cross to be correct.
