  • He made his will in 1558 while ill and presumably recovered as the will was not proved until 1561.

    His son Walter is made joint executor with his wife Margery.

    There is a specified parcel of land in Winterbourne Stoke which is left in the care of his sons Thomas and William to be handed to their brother John when he reaches the age of 17.  If he does not live so long, then the land devolves to each brother in turn.  The precedence seems to imply that William is the eldest, then Thomas, then Walter.  However, Walter is named executor and recipient of the residue of the estate and on that basis could be expected to be the eldest.

    His daughter Anne was not married, and was to be given a dowry of ?13 6s 8d when she did marry.

    He also specified a sum of ?6 13s 4d which was his price to pay to a Master Brent for a piece of land for his son Nicholas.

    There are specific bequests to his sister Isabel and his brother Robert. There is a similar bequest to William Kyngman, but the relationship is not defined.  This could be either his brother or his nephew.
