    --------------------

    The will of William Huddesfield
    "Written in myne owne hand the 8th day of June the year of our Lord God m cccc lxxxx vii [ie. 8 June 1497] and of the reign of King Henry the vii the xii....to the priest of Bridport...the parish church there....the church of Dyttysham....the priorie and Convent of Clerkenwelle by Ides London to pray for the soules of me and Elizabeth late my wife which hath buried there in the quere before the high altar........Item I will that my daughter Elizabeth have a thousand marks. Item to my sone Sir Edmund Carewe and my said daughter Dame Katheryn his wife have some of my washinge basins of silver with the ewers there to belonging....the same basins and ewers to my wife Dame Katheryn during her life to do her honour and worship.....Item I willl the same Dame Katheryn Carew a standing cup of silver which I had of my neve Robert Mountaign. Item I will that the money which my wife brought to me she knoweth well where it is I never spend a penny thereof I will she have it to her owne use and behove to the intent that she may per use it at her pleasure her owne sone George Rogers whome I intended if I might have lived to have presented him to have as my owne childe God knoweth....Item to my wife for the term of her life the manor of Shillingford. Item to John Carew son of my said daughter ...to Charles Carew broder of the said John....to Thomas Carew or William Carew brothers of the said John.....to my cosyn William Wikes....to Gare Huchyn myne olde servant........to sing and pray for the soules of me and Elizabeth late my wife and for the soules of William Huddesfield and Alice his wife my fadder and moder....and for all the soules of William Mountaign Robert Mountayn Agnes Wykes......I make my executors my wife and my daughter Elizabeth and Robert Alder.....Proved at Lambeth 6 July 1499

    If I were to guess, I would think that "my daughter Dame Katheryn Carew" is slightly less bequeathed than my "daughter Elizabeth." I should guess a thousand marks might be worth more than washing basins and ewers albeit of silver. He does not mention my daughter Elizabeth`s husband Sir Anthony Poyntz. Does that mean that at the time of the writing of the will, Elizabeth and Anthony were not married ? [Adrian Channing points out that an unmarried daughter would receive a larger amount for her "dowry" in marriage.]

    If Dame Katheryn Carew has 4 children by 1499 [actually, as pointed out by Adrian Channing, by 8 June 1497], then assuming they are all singles, she cannot have been married much later than 1495. Katherine Courtenay`s husband Thomas Rogers died in Oct 1478, and from this , Katherine must have married Sir Wm within a year of Thomas`s death for Katheryn Carew to be married by 1495. At best she would have been barely 16 when she married Edmund Carew. That is of course possible, but I think it militates against her being the daughter of Katherine Courtenay and toward her being the daughter of Elizabeth Bossom of Bossom`s Hele.

    I would value your opinion. Yrs Eliz
