[S1772] John Insley Coddington, Notes and Addenda to "Hale, House and Related Families", page 210 - from the will of Thomas Brett dated 15 Jan. 1615/16 . . . bequeathed to his "cousin" [nephew?] Mr. John Porter his tenement called Philles in the parish of Little Baddow, Essex, and made him the said John Porter his residuary legatee and one of his executors.
