137. WILL OF THOMAS STONOR 1474

This is an imperfect draft or copy of the Will. The date must be later than 8 October, 1468, since Richard Drayton is dead. Apparently all Stonor's daughetrs were unmarried, so the date must be before the marriage of one of them to John Cottesmore (see Nos. 110 and 128). The date of that marriage was therefore probably not before 1470. The will may be compared with the Arbitrament between William Stonor and his mother, No. 157. See further vol. ii., p. 184. From Ch. Misc., 37, ix, 22.
