    Text Abstract of the Will of Richard Culpeper of Wakehurst

    6 Sep 1539 (31 Henry VIII). I Richard Culpepper of Ardingly in the County of Sussex, Esq. To be buried within the church of Ardingly. To John my youngest son my best gray gelding. Unto Edward my son a broach of gold and 8 pearls and a stone in it. Whereas John my eldest son owes me 20 marks for wood that I sold him, I will the said 20 marks to Elizabeth and Anne my daughters, if the said John does not pay it in my lifetime to the marriage of Alice my daughter; and if he pay it for the said marriage, then he shall pay it to them after the rate as it rests among the other brothers and sisters. Also whereas I have paid to the marriage of Alice my daughter 20 marks, I bequeath the said 20 marks to Elizabeth and Anne my daughters accordingly to raise crops upon such lands as I and he agreed to be raised until £400 be paid. The residue of all my goods and cattle I give unto Joan my wife whom I make my sole executor and my son Jasper to be overseer. Witnesses: Nicholas Harvey, clerk, parson of Balcombe, Jasper Culpeper, William Benye, Richard Landesdell clerk, Richard Stayne, and John Selyard. Proved at London 16 Oct. 1539 by the oath of Peter Lylly, proctor of the relict and executrix.
