Item I give unto Elizabeth Becke my kinswoman and servant one blacke broad-horned cow, which I promised her before. Item I give to the poore of the parish twenty shillings to be distributed among them in money or otherwise at my funerall. The rest of my goods unbequethed, my funerall and debts being discarged, I leave unto my wife Dionys, whom I ordaine to be my sole executrix: and my loving kinsman Richard Edmunds gent, and my good neighbour Beniamin Leach overseers of this my last Will and Testament, to see the same performed.
