Copy of will, 1482-08-04

Reference Code: GBR/0268/CCCC09/14/120A 1a

Scope and Contents

The will leaves 40d to the Master of the college and 3s to each of the fellows to pray for his soul and also two books: to the college library an exposition of Thomas Aquinas with works by him on moral philosophy, 2o folio: Finem optumum; the other, an old text of moral philosophy, 2o folio: Qua propter, for the electiones (neither of which books seem to survive in the college library today). He also leaves the property which he has recently acquired on the death of his mother to the college in return for obsequies like those of Dr Botwright. He makes his sister [Margaret Cope] and Thomas Cosin his residuary legatees and executors.
Endorsed as proved before John Ripplingham, Vice-Chancellor, 13 February 1482/3.
