Prepared by Michael Steer

The brief article presents the will of Robert Bowring of Bowringsleigh and Alvington (1473-1514), son of Thomas Bowring, in which his brother Rauf is mentioned. He was a Bencher of the Middle Temple and a JP in Devon. In 1504 he succeeded to his inheritance near Kingsbridge and elsewhere. The town of Plymouth paid him 10 shillings in 1508 for examining its charters and from the following year he received similar occasional payments as well as an annual fee of 26s.8d. as recorder. The accounts for 1513-14 record a payment of £5 to him 'for his attendance at the Parliament', and three years later a further 26s.4d. 'paid to the recorder's brother for his fee for the burgess-ship of the Parliament for 'our town'.
