Further to my request for deciphering of the above two copies of the Will of Robert Dethe, in the first version that I posted, can anyone discern a date in the the four short lines at the bottom of the Will ?

I'd suggest Novembris 1546. There is too much damage to read the day, but the first digit could be 1.

If it's the date of probate, which seems likely, the archive catalogue may have the date from another source, such as the Probate Act Book (if it survives?).
