Following from the link to the Kent Will of Joan Brenchley I have found
a few more which have a link to the Echyngham problem, in this case they
concern the Criol family. See http://tinyurl.com/okohp
In summary the following descent appears:
1. John Criol d. 1376 m1 ?, m2 Letice d. 1408 (she m1? Brikelesworth)
2. Nicholas Criol d. 1379 (son of 1st wife?) m. Elizabeth
Nicholas leaves 20 marks to Elizabeth Echyngham and makes William
Ecchyngham Knight and Robert of Ecchyngham two of his executors.
William Ecchyngham Knight is presumably Sir William Echyngham who died
18 Jan 1388. Elizabeth Echynham mentioned in the will is, I assume, his
wife Elizabeth. But who is Robert of Ecchyngham? Is he Robert, son of
Sir William? And is Elizabeth Echyngham Nicholas Criol's daughter or is
there some other relationship proved from another source?

where God shall dispose. [various religious bequests]
