(Will)  Collection: England: Canterbury - Wills Proved in The Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 1605-1619 The Will and Epitaph of Cicely Sandys A brief printed abstract of Cicely Sandys' will appears in Virginia Magazine, XXIX ( April 1921), 234-5. The will is undated, but a codicil is dated 17 January 1610/11, and it was probated 12 February 1610/11. Edwin and Myles Sandys, favoured (next to Samuel, the oldest) legatees of the Archbishop himself, received from their mother only �100 each. Thomas and Henry, as George, received �200, and later in the codicil another �100 each was added to the portions of Thomas and Henry. Among other beneficiaries were Dame Katherine, wife of Sir Edwyn; Dame Anne Barne, Cecily Sandys ' daughter; Mary, daughter of Sir Samuel; and Anne Barne and Margaret Aucher, also granddaughters; Sir Anthony Aucher, her grandson; Bridget Sandys, who waited on Cecily Sandys, her son Henry's daughter; and several servants. Cicely mentions that she has brought up several of her grandchildren. If the letter of this will was adhered to, it is possible that George did not receive the �200 (see Chapster V, text and note 1 above) for his return may have been later than February 1612. In all probability, however, he was back in England by this time. Sir Samuel Sandys in 1619 erected a monument to his mother (see E. S. Sandys, The Family of Sandys, I, 1 81), with an epitaph beginning: "Cecilie Sandys, daughter of Thomas Wilford, of Cranbrook in Kent, Esqre ,. sister to ye worthie souldiers Sir James Wilford and Sir Thomas Wilford, was wife to Edwin Sandys, Archbishop of Yorke, who died in great honour on the year 1588, when he had lived full 70 yeares. . . . She bore 7 sons and 2 daughters. She led a most Christian and holy life, carefully educated her children, wisely governed hir familye, charatably relieved the poore, and was a true mirror of a Christian matron. She dep'ted this life constant in Christian faith, ye 5th Feby 1610. At the rising of the sun her blessed soule ascended to the consort of the blessed, and hir bodie lyeth heer interred, expecting the joyful resurrection." is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
