(McCoy) Will of Mathewe Maihewe deposited at Somerset House Principal Registry of Probate (Wiltshire), Archdeaconry of Sarum, VIII, 224. Will dated 31 Aug 1612, proved 27 Jun 1614. (McKay)

""described in his will as a yeoman' by which term is meant to be conveyed, legally speaking, a freeholder next under the rank of gentleman'; for being descended from the line of a third son of an established family he had not the quality that then attached to the eldest branch. Nevertheless he was a man of substance and left to his heirs an estate valued at about $7000 in cash, besides his real property, as estimated by our present standards." (Banks, v.III, as quoted by Hubbard)
