Hi all, I'm looking at the will of John Palmer of Charlton, Wantage, Berkshire, dated 1564 which I think was given probate in 1574. The will itself is in English and I can (slowly) decipher it, but the section at the end is in Latin I think. I've attached this section and wondered whether anyone might be able to tell me what it says.

If it helps, John Palmer married Jone and had at least the following children in Wantage parish:
1. Johone 1546
2. John 1548
3. Sybill 1551-1561
4. Bridget 1553
5&6. Margery & Jone 1556

Many thanks if anyone can assist.
