Recent research has revealed that Johanna Hille and Johanna Sturdy are not
the same woman. The will of Johanna Hille has apparently been located. She
died in 1441(I have chapter and verse somewhere).

The fifth and tenor bells at Basildon, Essex are by Johanna Hille. The
fifth bell is wrongly ascribed to Richard Hille in The Church Bells of Essex.
