Offices Held


In his last will, made on 2 Apr. 1448, Hunt left to his widow and executrix their dwelling-place in Rochester, together with a stable in ‘Edmundeslane’. Otherwise, the chief beneficiary was William Martyn, whose son, Robert, was given a legacy for his schooling. The previous day Hunt had requested burial in the cemetery of St. Nicholas’s church, Rochester, to which he bequeathed sums of money amounting to two marks. In 1452, in her final testament, his widow asked to be buried in the same place.

Rochester consist. ct. wills, i. ff. 51, 101v. Neither will has a date of probate. William’s relationship, if any, to Henry Hunt, the baker and inn-keeper who represented Rochester in the Parliament of 1450, is not known.
