I've been sent a copy of the will of Henry Shipton -clearly a very wealthy gentleman- in which he mentions not only his daughter Mary Rickards (who inherits property in Hanbury parish), but also his eldest son and heir Thomas Shipton (who inherits the family home and land in Yoxall as well as property in Yorkshire bequeathed by "my good friend and kinsman Mr Henry Walton") and his second son Henry Shipton who inherits the farm on which he is currently living at Yoxall Woodhouses, and names several grandchildren.
