I have his will dated 1568 proved 1570. I reckon he was the uncle of Jane Searles who married Alexander Hawker. However he refers to Alexander Hawker as his "cozen" in his will. Would a nephew be referred to as a cousin? Jane & Alexander Hawker are my ? x grandparents.
In this time period "cousin" only means what today is called "KINSman".
They didn't have the nicety of language to describe today's mangled "nephew-in-law".
