Hello Bob,
It's possible that your families have also Suffolk roots. I only
have the indexes but I note that Richard ARGENT of Stoke-by-Clare has a
published will in 'Wills of the Archdeaconry of Sudbury 1630-1635' edited by
Nesta Evans, Volume XXIX of the Suffolk Record Society. In the same volume
may be found the published will of Stephen DOE of Hopton. A companion volume
(XXXV, 1636-1638) also by Nesta Evans lists the published wills of Edith
ARGENT of Wixhoe and Margaret DOE of Botesdale. The Suffolk Record Office
should be able to assist.
