     James Popplewell was mentioned in the will of Richard Popplewell dated 12 July 1564. James was a yeoman in Belton, LIN..
     James Popplewell married Elizabeth Broughton on 24 September 1583 in Belton, LIN.
     James Popplewell made a will dated 3 July 1605 in Belton. His will mentions his eldest son John (a minor), Thomas 2nd son, Robert 3rd son and William 4th son and daughters Elizabeth, Dorothea & Ann, his wife Elizabeth, his mother Alice Foster and his sister Rayner, probably the wife of Christopher Rayner, one of the supervisors. He also mentions Robert & Alban Popplewell from whom he purchased lands in Belton & Owston, & Robert Popplewell of Humberthwaite from whom he purchased lands, A Robert Popplewell witnessed the will. Joy Lloyd wrote: James Popplewell's preamble contained a statement on the nature of the Trinity and a decidedly Calvinist conclusion. Unlike the Glews, he was not alienated from the parish church at the time and expressed a wish to be buried within the church of Belton. He also left money 'towards the buying of a booke to the use of the church', as well as a legacy for the poor. His request for a sermon, however, did not name the parish clergyman John Melton, but simply left 3s 4d 'to that man which shall preach at my buriall'. James Popplewell seems to have conformed sufficiently to remain in good standing with the church, but to have been less than enthusiastic in his support for the curate.
