DescriptionAfter a long religious preamble and instructions for his burial in 'our quier at Silkstone', he leaves:

£300 for the maintenance of a zealous preacher of God's word forever at Stainburgh chapel or sometimes at Barnsley as his son Gervase [Sir Gervase Cutler (1593-1645)] shall think fitting;

£40 for the needful poor of Silkstone;

dowries of 1000 marks for each of his 4 daughters.

Out of the money owing him on bond by 'able' men his wife is to purchase some good grass grounds in Yorkshire or Lincolnshire for endowing the preacher (not to the West of Stainbrough or in Derbyshire), which she shall have for life.
