Edward, is this the same will as parts 1-6 ?

ADDED -- I now see that it is.

ADDED AGAIN -- later discovered that it isn't the same will after all, see https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=811441.msg6716296#msg6716296

And I leave to Edward Caton 3 shillings 4 pence. And I leave to Nicholas Marham 3 shillings 4 pence. And I leave to John Gore the younger 3 shillings 4 pence. And I leave to Amy, wife of John Weneyve[?], 6 shillings 8 pence. Item I leave to the Guild of St Eligius of Thetford 3 shillings 4 pence. And I leave to the Guild of Corpus Christi of the same town 6 shillings 8 pence. Item I leave to Ann my daughter my second-best bedding, namely one coverlet, one pair of blankets, one pair of sheets and one new mattress, six silver spoons, one silver bowl & one garnish of pewter vessels.* And I leave to the same Ann three hundred and fifty lambs and one hundred ewes resting at Illyngham, with all the profits of the same, which are to be released to her through the hands of my executors when she has married. And if the same Ann should die unmarried, I will that my executors should sell all the lambs, ewes and all other things intended for the same Ann, and they should proceed to spend the money thence raised for my soul and for the souls of my benefactors. Item I leave to Margaret my wife all the other furnishings and utensils belonging to my household ...

         * = a set of pewter plates

ADDED - the above section was later found to be from a different will, see https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=811441.msg6716296#msg6716296
