He desired to be buried in our Lady Chapel, St. Margaret Patens, London, where he had his large house, but also left 200 marks to found a chapel for St. John in the churchyard, whence his body was to be removed. As was the tradition of London, he gave his wife Anne Dune [sic] one-third of his estate, plus an additional 100 pounds and household stuff. He gave another third (again, tradition) to his minor children Edward, Francis and Elizabeth Dun. The two sons were also given an additional 100 pounds. Later on in his will he left his son Gabriell ten pounds to be used to school him at Cambridge or Oxford." Probate on 9 Dec 1506 London PCC 13 Adeane. FHL #91,905. Proved by his widow."
