Thanks, any thoughts on what "ber(e)bruer" may mean or is relevant to?

Manningtree is in Essex but only just the other side of the Suffolk border

Just to say that the National Archives have recorded the testator as John Cokok, rather than Coket. The last letter could indeed be k, with a tail (and/or interference from the line above), and it looks even more like Cokok in the left-hand margin (not shown here).

It really does like like Cokok but having worked through the Essex RO website, this surname does not appear. However Coket / Cocket / etc does.

I believe that the record in the PCC is a transcribed version of the original and am guessing that the clerk has written down what he thinks the words are.

I think that makes good sense, especially as no other references to that name can be found anywhere, apart from a few that stem from the PCC version of this will.
