(Continues)

William Allston made a large Will, under which each of his children and grandchildren received amounts of money and/or property.
William was the eldest son and heir, received the Manor of Sayham Hall and other estates under the will of his father. He is described as of Sible Hedingham Co. Essex and also of Sayham Hall and was born in 1537.

In the pedigree recorded in the Bedfordshire Visitation William Alston is said to have married Dorothy, daughter and co-heir of Henry Hampstead, of Halsted, Co. Essex. This statement contains as many inaccuracies as the famous one about the lobster being a red fish that crawls backwards, because William did not marry Dorothy but Margery, that her surname was Holmested not Hampstead and that she was of Maplestead in Essex and not Halstead. - Lionel Cresswell, Stemmata Alstoniana.

The inquisition post mortem of Thomas Alston Jnr. of Edwardstone (nephew of William) puts this beyond doubt by its recitation of the inheritance by the deceased Thomas from his mother Dorothy Holmested of the moiety of the Rectory and Vicarage of Great Maplestead. William Alston's will dated 30th May 1617 describes him as of Hedingham Sible and as being "all this tyme sicke in bodie but of good and perfect remembrance", revokes all former wills and recommends his soul to God and his body to decent burial by his executor. The Manor of Seyme Hall is given to his son William for life, and then to William Alston, his grandchild.

His extensive landed possessions are carefully parceled out among his children, and considerable bequests in money are also made to them. Also his grandchildren are affectionately remembered and his servants are not forgotten.
