Letters of administration granted to his son, Matthew, Aug. 4, 1631. Christopher not named in his mother's will. John not named in his mother's will. William of Thumscoe, executor of his mother's will. Thomas named in his mother's will, in which she calls him her third son. James, Martin, or Ann are not named in their mother's will.
