John Ifilld (alt. Ifield) (b. ca. 1600; d.?). Cooper.
Resident in the parish of Saint Olave Southwark in 1655.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Aged fifty-five, John Ifilld deposed on May 14th in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on a libel on behalf of William Hiscock and partners in the case of "William Hiscock and partners against a certaine shipp called the Edward whereof William Wood was master and against Alderman Andrew Riccard and Companie".
Ifilld stated that he had served William Hiscock as cooper for a number of years prior to 1648. In 1648 he was employed by Hiscock to lade thirty-three tunns of beer on board the ship the Edward (Master: William Wood). Iffild confirmed that the beer was delivered into the ship from several lighters, but was unable to place a value on the goods.
