    It is not clear how this will relates. Perhaps it is of one of Thomas's younger sons, as it leaves bequests to Robert Draper's family.

  8.   Most sources have this Thomas as the father of Robert, but the 1869 edition of the Cooke's Visitation of London in 1568 makes him Robert's brother. This may be a transcription error, as the Stanford edition of the Visitation, citing "G.10", gives Thomas as Robert's father.
