It does look like 'Gons Grove' Mckha, although there would seem to be contraction mark over it, so maybe Gonns Grove?
It's a different contraction mark than the one that marks the missing 'a' in 'appurten(a)nces, but I don't know if that's significant.

The missing grove may be Axcroft. (Certainly 'croft' at the end).
Is there another capital A in the will to compare it?

'with their and everie their appurten(a)nces. As also one meadow called'

Also 'Harwicke', 'Norfolke'.

I think Oxcroft, rather than Axcroft. (Common form of capital O with two downward strokes.)
Compare the capital A further along the same line.

Presumably Wyne = wine. Licences were needed to sell wine and beer, etc.
