He left the house in which he was living called " Fancocke," in " Wie," to his nephew, Thomas Kempe. To his brother, Francis Kempe, he bequeathed ^100; to the wife of his nephew Thomas, a " jewell of gold with two diamonds therein ; to their daughters, Ann (the eldest), Dorothy, and Mary, silver pieces and " fine Holland sheets "; to his nephew, " Raynold " (Reginald), /50 instead of " my household stuff which I purposed to have given him," also a " deaths-head ring of gold " and a cloak.

    • CHAPTER 6 page 11 (KEMPS of OLLANTIGH)
      "John, the second son of Sir William, was chief legatee under the will of his mother. This will is remarkable for the number of pieces of silver given, bearing the 'Kempe Sheaves.' John had a definite right to both the arms of his father, viz: three sheaves on a red ground surrounded by a border engrailed, and the crest, the pelican - picking her breast - but like the archbishop, he deemed it sufficient to use the sheaves merely, in allusion to his arms."

      John Kempe, the second son, and chief legatee of his mother, who thus received the manors
      of Morris Court, Tonge, Redmersham, Murston and Lynsted

      John had a definite right to the arms of his father, viz : three sheaves on a red ground surrounded by a border engrailed and the crest, the pelican " vulning," i.e., peeking her breast, providing merely that the cadence marks were added ; but, like the archbishop, he deemed it sufficient to use the sheaves merely,— in allusion to his arms.

    • He had married some time before this Eleanore, daughter and coheir of Sir Robert Browne, Knight, and widow of Thomas Fogg, Esq., Sergeant Porter of Calais.

      This marriage was, like that of his grandfather with Alice Scot, of Scotshall, the means of
      bringing more royal ancestors to the family, and the subsequent generations were always anxious
      to claim the connection with the Earls of Arundel.
