[The following document is enclosed in the Will.] A Remembrance of Mr. CAUSTON's Will on Friday 5 May [year not given]. I will my wife shall have Cantlandes during her life, and to have £10 yearly out of this which I now dwell in, her chamber, her maid, boy gelding, meat, drink and washing as long as she shall live. I will that Matthew my son shall be my executor. I will that Nathaniel my son shall not have above £40 and shall not have it until 24, and then he shall have a lease of a farm to occupy himself. Likewise Jonathan my son shall not have above £40 at 24; he did estimate his debts to be about £160 and £100 was to be paid between this and Our Lady Day [25 March] next. Further he said that he would have in the latter end of his Will these words: The residue of my goods to my executors towards the paying of my debts and legacies. Also he said that my wife shall have her portion without any check or trouble, for, said he, I will do by my son as my father did by me, that was, he made a clause in the Will that if I did not let her enjoy her part quietly, then it might be lawful for her to enter on the lease of 'Olem' and put me out of the same, and this I will do by my son. Also he said where I have a Will drawn into articles I must have it altered and made thus perfect, the which hath lain by me these 7 years, for there are many things which I have given away which I must put out.
