    SUMMARY: The document below is the Prerogative Count of Canterbury copy of the will, dated 14 September 1555, of Humphrey Pakington (1502-1556), brother of Augustine, Sir John (d.1551), and Robert Pakington (1496-1537), and grandfather of Humphrey Martyn, the addressee of the Langham Letter. At the time of the making of his will he had eleven living children, four sons (John, Humphrey, Edward and William), and seven daughters, four married (Jane, Katherine, Anne and Alice) and three unmarried (Margery, Martha and Margaret), his daughter Lettice, wife of Sir Roger Martyn, and mother of Humphrey Martyn, addressee of the Langham Letter, having predeceased him.
