[Translation of the above]: And furthermore the aforesaid jurors say that the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE, after the aforesaid will was made in writing and before his death, declared his further will orally, and not in writing, in the presence of Thomas ARUNDELL of Lee, esquire, and Walter SKYNNER and Richard BENNETT (who made oath to us on the sacred gospels at the taking of this inquisition, and were carefully examined by us the said jurors), [and this will] concerned certain lands and tenements in Woodford aforesaid in the county of Cornwall, in manner and form following, that is to say: that as litigation and strife had broken out before these times between the same Sir Richard GRENVILLE on the one side and the aforesaid John GRENVILLE his brother on the other, about and concerning the legal title to and possession of various lands and tenements with their appurtenances in Newton, Fauston, Cargurra, Dolland, Corry, Porruyn [Polruan] & Woodford in the same county of Cornwall, the same Sir Richard GRENVILLE declared, willed and gave all and singular the aforesaid messuages, lands and tenements with their appurtenances in Woodford aforesaid to the aforesaid John GRENVILLE, to hold to him, his heirs and assigns for ever, but on condition that if the aforesaid John GRENVILLE wished to make a satisfactory legal title before the feast of Easter then next following in respect of all the aforesaid premises in Newton Fauston Cargurra Dolland Corry & Polruan, in favour of the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE and his heirs, as is mentioned in the first codicil to the will of Sir Richard GRENVILLE himself, or if the aforesaid John GRENVILLE or his heirs at some other time then to come and successively - either before the said feast of Easter or after it - wished to bind themselves legally and in writing to Degory his brother and Thomas ARUNDELL of Lee, esquire, and their heirs, that they will make a satifactory title and guarantee concerning the aforesaid lands and tenements in Newton Fauston Cargurra Dolland Corry & Polruan to the aforesaid Degory GRENVILLE and Thomas ARUNDELL, to hold to themselves and their heirs to the use of Richard GRENVILLE their kinsman and the heirs of the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE and his heirs - then that will of the said Sir Richard GRENVILLE about the aforesaid lands and tenements in Woodford aforesaid [being given] to the aforesaid John GRENVILLE and his heirs should receive its force and remain in full effect, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the first will. And the jurors aforesaid say further that the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE died before the making of the aforesaid guarantee and before the aforesaid feast of Easter. And they say also that the aforesaid John GRENVILLE is bound to the said Degory GRENVILLE and Thomas ARUNDELL by a satisfactory legal instrument, to make a competent guarantee concerning all the aforesaid premises in Newton Fauston Cargurra Dolland Corry and Polruan according to the substance of the aforesaid condition. And the jurors aforesaid say further that the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE before his death bequeathed and gave orally in the prescribed manner, to the aforesaid John GRENVILLE his brother, 30 pounds of legal English money in consideration and full settlement for the aforesaid lands and tenements in Newton Fauston Cargurra Dolland Corry and Polruan, to be paid to the same John, his executors or assigns, after the guarantee concerning the same tenements in Newton Fauston Cargurra Dolland Corry and Polruan, according to the will, as made and implemented, of the same Sir Richard GRENVILLE. And furthermore the jurors aforesaid say that the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE, by his deed bearing date the 20th March in the 37th year of the reign of King Henry the Eighth [1545/46], for and in consideration of the good and acceptable service to the aforesaid Richard GRENVILLE performed by Walter SKYNNER in times past, gave and granted to the aforesaid Walter SKYNNER an annuity or annual rent-charge of 40 shillings issuing from the manor of Kilkhampton aforesaid with appurtenances, as well as from all messuages, lands, tenements and other hereditaments with their appurtenances in Kilkhampton aforesaid and Stowe, to have, raise and receive annually the said annuity or annual rent-charge of 40 shillings to the said Walter SKYNNER for the term of his life, as more fully appears and is confirmed in the same deed shown to the said jurors in evidence before the taking of this inquisition. And the aforesaid Richard GRENVILLE by another deed bearing date the 10th day of March recently past, gave and granted to the aforesaid Walter SKYNNER, for his good service rendered, an annuity or annual rent-charge of 26 shillings and eight pence issuing from the manor of Tenyell aforesaid, to have, raise and receive annually the said annuity or annual rent-charge of 40 shillings to the said Walter SKYNNER for the term of his life, as appears more fully in the same deed similarly shown in evidence to the aforesaid jurors. And furthermore the jurors aforesaid say that the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE by another deed shown in evidence to the aforesaid jurors, dated 20 November in the third year of the reign of the present Lord King Edward the Sixth [1549], motivated by several considerations, gave and granted to a certain Richard LUCAS and Degory LUCAS one annuity or annual rent-charge of six pounds thirteen shillings and four pence issuing from all his messuages, lands and tenements in the parish of Kilkhampton in the said county of Cornwall, to have, raise and receive annually the said annuity or annual rent-charge of six pounds thirteen shillings and four pence to the said Richard LUCAS and Degory LUCAS for the term of their lives or the life of the longest liver, as by the same deed more plainly appears. And further the jurors aforesaid say that the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE by another deed similarly shown in evidence to the aforesaid jurors, bearing date the 10th day of October in the 31st year of the reign of King Henry the Eighth [1539], in consideration of the good and acceptable service to the aforesaid Richard performed by John APRISE in times past, and to be rendered later, gave and granted to the said John APRISE an annuity or annual rent-charge of 20 shillings issuing from a holding with appurtenances in Houndepytt, lying and being within the manor of Kilkhampton in the said county of Cornwall, to have, raise and receive annually the said annuity or annual rent-charge of twenty shillings to the said John APRYSE for the term of his life, as more plainly appears in that deed. And the aforesaid Richard GRENVILLE, by another deed shown to the aforesaid jurors in evidence, bearing date the 10th day of March in the fourth year just elapsed of the reign of our present King Edward the Sixth [1549/50], in consideration of the good and loyal service to the aforesaid Richard performed and carried out by Thomas NELE his servant, gave and granted to the same Thomas NELE one annuity or annual rent-charge of ten shillings issuing from all his lands and tenements situated and lying in the county of Cornwall, to have, raise and receive annually the said annuity or annual rent-charge of ten shillings to the aforesaid Thomas NELE for the term of his life as more fully appears by the same deed. And the aforesaid Richard GRENVILLE, by another deed similarly shown to the aforesaid jurors on the taking of this inquisition, bearing date the 12th day of March just passed in the fourth year of the reign of the present Lord King Edward the Sixth [1549/50], in consideration of the good and loyal service to the aforesaid Richard performed in the past and to be rendered later by his servant John BAWMAN, gave and granted to the aforesaid John BAWMAN one annuity or yearly rent-charge of 20 shillings issuing from the manor of Teynell with appurtenances in the said county of Cornwall to have, raise and receive annually the said annuity or annual rent-charge of twenty shillings to the aforesaid John BAWMAN for the term of his life, at the festivals of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Michael the Archangel in equal instalments, as by the same deed more plainly appears. And furthermore the jurors aforesaid say indeed that Roger GRENVILLE esquire, deceased, father of the aforesaid Sir Richard GRENVILLE, by his last will shown in evidence to the aforesaid jurors on the taking of this inquisition, gave and granted [next word illegible in tear] to Lewis LYPPYNGCOTT, then his servant, the office of bailiff of the manor of Kilkhampton aforesaid, together with fifteen shillings of annual rent-charge issuing from the same manor, for exercising, holding and keeping the said office, and for the aforesaid Lewis to receive the said annuity or annual rent-charge for the term of his life, as appears and is evident from the said will and by the inquisition after the death of the said Roger, [both] shown to us.
