Thanks again, the family seemed to have 'owned' 8 maybe 10 manors in Suffolk & Norfolk as sheep farmers or merchants, so probably leaving money to each local church, etc. I am still trying to work this bit out.

A later will includes most of these places and a number of Chapter Houses as well, luckily that one was in English.

Sporles is possibly Sporle 2 miles NW from Swaffham.

Babewell could be Badwell Ash or Bardwell, nothing else seems to fit & both are close to Ampton
