2. Edmund Scott appears in the parish records of Rattlesden, co. Suffolk, for the first time in 1567, when he brought a child to baptism. He was a “questman,” a parish officer, 1569.  Rattlesden July 25, 1594, Martha Whatlock, daughter of Thomas and Joan Whatlock, who had been baptized in that parish July 18, 1568. Scott was buried in Rattlesden December 24, 1624. As the baptisms of his two eldest children are not in the register, which begins in 1558, he probably came to Rattlesden from another parish. He was church warden in 1588-1589, and collector in 1593 and 1611.
 Joan Scott, his wife, whom he may have married about 1560, was buried in Rattlesden August 14, 1621, aged “about ninety-seven years,” Possibly an exaggeration.
