TitleMORE AND MORE MOLYNEUX FAMILY OF LOSELEY PARK: TRUSTEESHIPS AND EXECUTORSHIPS, INCLUDING PAPERS OF SIR THOMAS CAWARDEN
DescriptionThe most significant papers are those relating to Sir Thomas Cawarden (before 1514-1559) of Bletchingley and Blackfriars, Master of the Tents and Revels from 1544, to whom William More acted as executor.

The groups are arranged chronologically by date of executorship or trusteeship and are as follows: records relating to John Twisilton, alderman of London (d.1527); William Westbrooke of Godalming, (d. c.1537); lands of Richard Weston held in trust for his grandson Henry during Sir Francis Weston's attainder (1536-1549); Sir Thomas Cawarden (d.1559); Richard Worsley of the Isle of Wight (d.1565); Anthony Browne, 1st Viscount Montague (d.1592); Thomas Key, rector of St Nicholas, Guildford (d.1611); manor of Witley, 1701; Emma Catherall of Somerset (d.1743). Following the principal executorships are papers relating to the administration of small personal estates, and then papers for which provenance in the Loseley Mss is uncertain or not yet determined, principally legal case papers and records relating to title or probate.

Records relating to William More's executorship of the estate of William Swerder [Sworder], Master of Eastbridge Hospital, Canterbury (d.1575), do not appear in this section: they are all listed in section G.9.8. For the will of Henry Polsted, 1556, for whom William More acted as executor, see MS Lb.83 (Z/407 sec.2.2.5).
