Dates of existence
The Ayliffe family was a yeoman family that leased the farm of Skyres (Skeyers, Skiers), Wootton St. Lawrence, Hampshire from the end of the 15th century to at least 1674. The Ayliffe family also owned other properties in Hampshire: Boltishams (Bolshams) farm, North Oakley farm and Hannington farm.
Richard Ayliffe was born in 1564. He was the grandson of another Richard, the son of Thomas. In 1594, he married Elizabeth Venables. Their children were Joan (b. 1596), Thomas (1597-1644), Richard (b. 1599), Andrea (b. 1601), Jane (1603-1604) and Elizabeth. A cousin was Richard Ayliffe of Ewhurst. In 1611, Richard Ayliffe was forced to move to the parsonage at Amport, Hampshire, after falling into financial difficulties by acting as guarantor to his nephew, Bernard Calverd. He died there in 1614.
