"The draper [Sir Simon Eyre, Mayor of London] leaves a total of 7,000 marks to his family -- 2,000 to his only child, Thomas; 1,000 to his grandson, Robert; 2,000 to his grandson, Thomas; and 2,000 to his graddaughter, Jane. In each case the amount is to be paid half in woolen cloth "as it cost at ye first cate" and half in debtors." [In a second, fragmentary codicil, also kept at Somerset House, Eyre apparently tried to remedy this unequal distribution by giving each of the grandchildren 1,000 marks and leaving the rest to his son Thomas.]
