John died 1 May 1853 at Hadlow. His will states that his wife was to be taken care of first as was the custom, then his son Thomas Cotton Nye was bequethed fifty pounds, his son John Nye was bequethed five pounds and the balance of his property and estate were left to his two daughters Ann and Sophia.

We don't know if the two John Nye's didn't get along or what but the younger John definitely could have used far more than fifty pounds.
