      Notes
      While on his death-bed and only three days before his burial, which took place on 22 March 1603/4, John Adam shad his will drawn up, apparently completely; but it was neither signed nor witnessed; possibly he expired suddenly before these acts could be performed. Furthermore, the will was not brought before the ecclesiastical probate court until over five years after his decease, and it was never registered.The original document is preserved in the Probate Registry at Wells, being no. 2 in the bundle for 1609, and a complete verbatim copy of the document is herewith appended:.
