  • Notes 
    • "John Exherst, husbandman of Staplehurst was among those pardoned in July 1450 after Cade's Rebellion. He must have been at least 25 to have even been slightly involved. John moved to Canterbury by 1478, when he was admitted as a freeman there. He was a brewer in Canterbury and lived in St. Paul's parish" [Todd Whitesides on findagrave.com]

      "Richard Exhurst's father John retained his land in Staplehurst, but in his later years he seems to have lived in Canterbury, where he was recorded as a brewer on his admission as a freeman of the town by redemption (purchase) in 1478. Chronologically, it is possible that John was the John Exhurst, husbandman of Staplehurst, who was among those pardoned in July 1450 after Cade's Rebellion. Around 1480 John Exhurst, citizen and brewer of Canterbury, and Sir Thomas Bouchier, knight, of Leeds, were involved in the arbitration of a dispute concerning the ownership of some oxen. On 26 June 1487 John Exhurst, John Waller, and others witnessed a deed in Canterbury. In his will John Exhurst described himself as a brewer of St. Paul's parish in Canterbury. He requested burial within the monastery of St. Augustine by Canterbury and gave 6s. 8d. to the making of a new bell there. John Exhurst died between 20 March 1492/3, the date of his will, and 15 April 1493, the date it was proved."
