Joseph Whitaker's will raises a few questions. Why did he treat Arthur Cerdic differently from the others? His is the only case where he was not to receive the whole of his inheritance at 27 but only part and the balance when he was thirty. Arthur Cerdic was already married, did father not approve of the marriage or did he think the son could not be trusted with the whole inheritance?
