2 From this it would appear that the chantry was to be established before the death of the testator—in other words, the testament was to take effect from the time of its execution. But from the archives of S. Paul's Cathedral we learn that the chantry was founded by Joan, reliotof Sir Nicholas de Wokyndon, Knt., on Sunday after the Feast of the Epiphany, 14 Edward II., and that after her death the right of presentation passed to Nicolas de Halughton, "cousin" and heir of the testator, being the son of his daughter Joan (Hist. MSS. Commission, Ninth Report, p. 54 a).
