248. THOMAS BETSON'S ACCOUNT FOR FENN'S BEQUEST [? 1479]

On 1st July, 1475, Sir William Stokker, William Heriot, John Stokker and John Pake entered into a bond for the payment of £400 by Sir William Stokker of that sum to the use of John, Katherine, Joan and Anne, children of Thomas Ryche when they come of age or marry; the money having been left by John Fenne, stockfishmonger (Letter Book, L. 131). This may be an account relating to the shares of the three daughters; "maystresse Jayn" is no doubt the second; she seems to have been in London with Betson in September, 1479 (see No. 249); this account may perhaps have been rendered a little earlier. From Ch. Misc., 37, iv, 36.
