William inherited the property called Bukks in Stradbroke from his father, along with other houses and lands in Stradbroke, Hoxne and Wilby. His will indicates that during his lifetime, he increased his property holdings. He had both men and women servants in his household and left generous inheritances to his children. He left one penny, a loaf of bread and cheese to all the poor people of his town. His will indicates extensive property holdings for a yeoman and he divided his numerous properties among his sons. His will bequeathed numerous cattle, horses and other livestock, and farm implements and grains in the barns.

5476 Richard Fiske.596,537,597  b. Laxfield, Suffolk, England about 1480.

There is some uncertainty about the exact ancestry of Richard Fiske. In the Moriarty article, a process of elimination is used to conclude that Richard is the son of Geoffrey Fiske. In any case it is fairly certain that he descends from the original Simon Fiske of Laxfield ca 1400.

Interestingly, among the descendants of Richard Fiske are Benjamin Harrison (23rd U.S. President) and Calvin Coolidge (30th U.S. President).
