Comments Les Rowley
This is clearly the father of the Robert we think is Christopher's father. It gives us his family. He is seriously wealthy, and has  some serious friends. nominating three "Sir"s, one a Baronet to oversea his will. Also Mabella his wife was wealthy in her own right when they married. What is that bit at the end giving his advisors a ring with a death's head in it?
Comments by Joan.
     Mablen Bragge m. Alexander Every in 1626, in Thorncombe near Axminster, Dorset.  Their daughter, Elizabeth was b. 1628 in Whitchurch Canonicorum, Dorset.
