Subject: Miles, militis
Date: Tue, 1 Jun 2004 15:36:23 EDT

Hello to all - I'm new to the list and would like to ask about these two
terms I found in the 1623 Visitation of Shropshire. I notice that "miles" always
appears for men, while "militis" is always for women, referring to their father
or to another husband.

Rogerus Corbet miles ob.
Hugo Burgh miles Tre'arius Angliae.
Robertus Corbet de Morton in co. Salop miles.

Isabella vxor John Lingeyn militis.
Margareta filia Will'i Mallory militis.
Elizabetha filia Walteri D'ni Ferrers de Chartley renupta Tho. Leighton de
Watlesburgh militi.

Thank you very much,
Alejandro Milberg
Boston, Mass.
