Trinity 1446: "David Brounyng and John Brook, executors of Thomas Dryffeld, state that on 16 January 1428 Richard Grey, now deceased, made bond with TD in £114 2s 3d. However, he did not pay TD or his executors, and nor has his widow and executor Margaret, or Thomas Grey after his marriage to MG, who still detain the sum to their damage of £200. They show the bond in court, and the testamentary letters of TD, by which they have administration." [1]
