William Sorrell born: 1502 in High Easter, Essex, England died ? buried: Boulogne, France (as provided for in his will) wife unknown. Parents unknown.

William Sorrell of England in his will provided for his burial in Boulogne, France. The will gives no family data except that he leaves his land and affairs in the keeping of a brother, John Sorrell. It seems that a part of his estate was located in that part of Essex which is now London. The will is said to have been in French or Latin. A copy was not furnished and date not given. The Sorrells were traditionally Huguenots.
