Probate is not filled in the next will was proved 28 May 1516. (P.C.C. 17 Holder)
Birthdate listed is very likely wrong as his will was proved 1516, making him deceased at less than 20, having produced 5 children. While possible, I highly doubt it.


William married Elizabeth Fryer, daughter of John Fryer and Alice.
