Proved vij day of May, the year above said.

Upoo comparing the two Wills it w ill be observed that Sir John Hylle omits all mention
of his daughter Margaw!i and Joan. We know that Joan, lady Male, was his daughter by
Dioupla, his ant wife, and that she was contracted in marriage in 1380; it may therefore
be infarmd (tI flyv that Lady ll ryngton was likewise by his first wife, and had attained bher
mAjorilr. and was provided for before the date of his Will in 1407; (secondly) that Eliza-
brth, -b de had entered the Sisterhood at Buckland Mouschorum before the date of her
father' Will, was likewise by his nlst wife; and G* his children by Maulds, his second % ife, and that they were all under age in 1407.
