Dear Newsgroup ~
Complete Peerage, 5 (1926): 253254 (sub Fanhope) includes a good
account of the life history of Sir John Cornwall, Lord Fanhope, who
died in 1443. According to Complete Peerage, Lord Fanhope left a will
dated 10 December 1443, directing burial in the Friars Preachers,
According to the source cited below, however, Lord Fanhope actually
left two wills, one dated dated 1 April 1437 and the other dated 10
Dec. 1443, both of which were probated. Under the terms of the first
will, a life rent of 40 marks payable out of certain London properties
was devoted to prayers for his soul.
Source: Beaven, Reports of Cases in Chancery, 2 (1841): 588-604.
This same addition needs to be made to Complete Peerage, 5 (1926): 200
Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
