Transcriber's and Editor's Notes
No relationships at all are given.
The year of the will is given in the extract as Charles I. It must refer to Charles the First rather than the Second, but does it mean the first year of Charles the First, or not? If so, it must be 1625/26 -- if not, it could also be 1626/27 or 1627/28.
