Witnesses on 1545 Will
« on: Monday 15 October 18 20:41 BST (UK) »
Hi

I'm hoping someone can help me clarify some of the names of witnesses to a Will in the attached image. There are a lot of witnesses named and I can make out all except 1 or 2 of them. This is how I read the names:

"John Coppyn, John Pamplett, Robert Benet, Christopher __________, John Colbrand, ______ Colbrand, Edward Colbrand, Nicholas Colbrand"

The second Colbrand name might be Vincent or Zacharias.

Can anyone tell me what Christopher's surname might be?

Many thanks

Matt

I'm fairly sure the capital is a V.  If you have another V to compare, I'd like to see it.

The second Colbrande forename is Nich(ol)as.
