Thank you all collectively. Interesting how this has developped.
The next bit is a signature.
Are we off to the races again? T

Richard Hokins was my first thought.
Might be a 'g' at the end instead of an 's'.

now not too sure about the first letter as an 'h'. The 'h' in 'Richard' is very different.

Is this the signature of a witness? - in which case there will probably be no more of his writing to compare letters? Or has it been written by the writer of the will? can you tell?

A case exists to say it is Vokins.

See:  http://www.rootschat.com/links/01pr3/

Eldest son of the Richard with the PCC will of 1646 is another Richard.

ADDED:

There's a good chance RV wrote the will.

Of course, I should have thought. ::) :-\I have been doing some research into Joan Vokins, nee' Bunce, sister in law of Oliver Sansum, a well known Quaker.

Thanks. I am very pleased how well things are going. Looking again at the last clip,
how would the adj. attached to brother on the line above Vokiins be transcribed?  T
