  2. 15.  Amy Ymal died before 29 May 1611 in St. Margaret Westminster, Middlesex, England; was buried on 29 May 1611 in St. Margaret Westminster, Middlesex, England.

    Notes:

    "What did bride Amy say to the parish clerk that he heard her name as Ymal? The answer remains a mystery. The name Ymal is contained in no standard surname dictionaries. The only entry of the name in the printed St. Margaret's, Westminster parish registers is the 1564 marriage of Amy to Thomas Empson. Neither is it -- or possible variants Imal, Emal, or Amal -- contained in the will indexes for 1500 to 1600 in the Perogative Court of Canterbury, the Peculiar Court of Westminster, the Commissary Court of London, the Archdeaconry Court of London, or the Archdeaconry Court of Buckingham. A few miscellaneous entries for this surname appear in the International Genealogical Index [IGI], but none for the period of Amy's life." [Myrtle Stevens Hyde, "Empson Ancestors," citation details below.]

    On the same page as the footnote transcribed above, Myrtle Stevens Hyde mentions that the Thomas Empson who married this Amy is "possibly the one named in the 1590 will of John Amptill of St. Giles in the Fields, adjacent to London in Middlesex, yeoman." Amptill's will mentioned two locks with keys in Thomas Empson's house. It seems to us at least plausible that "Ymal" was a mangled transcription of "Amptill", particularly if the latter name is pronounced with the stress on the second syllable.
