CAP. 5

(p.23) Sr Thomas Holles filled so much roome in our worlde during his prosperity yt I could not but afford him a chapter to himselfe. This next shall bring along his posterity, the inheritors not of his patrimony but his misfortunes. William Holles the only son of Sir Thomas Holles was borne in the life time of his grandfather and is perticularly mentioned by name in his grandmother's will, who gives him a legacy. He married . . . daughter of Sir Edward Flowerdew1 of . . . in the county of Northfolke, one of the Barons of the Exchequer, by whome he had only two children yt lived to full age: Edward Holles his sonne (and heyre if he had left anything), and . . . married to . . . Payt of Willesdon neare Branford to whome she brought children of both sexes. Nothing more hath come to my knowledge concerning him save that he followed his father's steps and utterly consumed what his father left of that estate.

I finde (in a clause annexed to the probat of his grandfather's will) thus--

'21 die Maii 1585. Emanavit commissio Willō Holles gen, proximo consanguineo dicti domini Willō Holles militis defuncti, ad administrand. bona jura et credita ejusdem defuncti, secundum tenorem testamenti hujusmodi per dictos executores non administrata de bene etc.'

This was above forty years after his grandfather's decease, and therefore more than likely that he was fallen to great wantes and like a drowning man catcht at any reed that he fancied for a while might holde him above water. With the place or time of his death I am altogether unacquainted, nor shall I observe any thing more concerning him but what his wife bore for hir armes vizt: Party per chevron engrayled argent and sable, 3 water beavers counter- changed--Flowerdew.
