[The will of Thomas Fownes of Plymouth, Devon., Esq. (1637-1638) which
should come in here, in chronological order, has already appeared among my
evidences concerning the Ilolworthy family (see Register for 1891, vol. xlv.,
pp. 153-4; ante, pp. 499, 500). He refers to Mr. John Gayre, gives to the poor
of Bristol, and names Elizabeth, wife of William Stephens of Bristol, and Mary
Longe daughter of sister Mary Longe deceased. He calls Judith, wife of Fran-
cis Amadas, kinswoman and Warwick Fownes of London, merchant, kinsman,
and refers to Humphrey Fownes as deceased. Richard Longe of Bristol he calls
kinsman and he also refers to an Aunt Yard as lately deceased. His daughter
Mary, as we know, was the wife of Richard Holworthy ; another daughter, Pru-
dence, was the wife of John Waddon and he speaks of daughter Johan as wife
of Hugh Gayer deceased. He also names daughters Elizabeth Yard and Susan
Kellond. He names also John, Thomas and Susan Kellond, the children of John
