Eleven of them are listed in Calendar of Probate and Administration Acts 1407-1541 and Abstracts of Wills 1541-1581 in the Court Books of the Bishop of Hereford, edited by M.A. Faraday and E.J.L.

He was a wealthy man and held the manor of Barton in Henmarsh, Worcestershire, as well as an estate in Eastnor. As he held property in more than one diocese his will had to be proved at the Prerogative Court of Canterbury and the enrolled copy of this is preserved at the National Archives.
