The above-written will was proved before the Reverend Father James etc., in his chapel within his manor of Hoxne, on the 28th day of the month of September in the year of the Lord one thousand four hundred and ninety one, and it was approved by him and inserted; and administration of all and singular the goods and debts concerning the abovesaid deceased and his present will was granted to the executors named in the above-written will, who were sworn in form of law. And afterwards, because the aforesaid Reverend Father found that the aforesaid executors had well and faithfully administered the goods and debts of the same deceased and had then rendered a faithful reckoning, he therefore discharged them from rendering a further calculation in that matter, saving the right of whomsoever.

(In other words, they had already prepared accounts before probate was granted and were therefore excused from doing it again.)
