      VIRGINIA GLEANINGS IN ENGLAND; The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, pp 416 JOHN CULPEPER of Greenway Courte, county Kent, Esquire.
      Will 14 December 1635; proved 3 January 1635-6. To be
      buried in chancel of Hollingbourne Church where Sir Thomas
      Culpeper shall think fit or most convenient and in such manner
      as my son Thomas Culpeper shall think fit. To Anne Culpeper
      my wife all debts owing to her as administratrix to her late
      husband, except debt owing by the Lord and Lady Lambert
      which I give to my son Thomas Culpeper. To son John annuity
      for life of £30 payable by Sir John Culpeper. To daughter
      Sicely Culpeper £300. To James Medlicott my son in law and
      Frances Medlicote my daughter 20s. each. Residuary Legatee
      and Executor: son Thomas. Witnesses: Tho. Culpeper, Alex
      ander Culpeper, John Culpeper, WilIra Cragge. Pile, 4.
      [The testator was evidently nearly related to the Lord Culpeper. A Francis Culpeper of Greenway Court, uncle to the first Lord, died in 1591, leaving a son Sir Thomas Culpeper of Hollingbourne. Lord Fairfax must have had some special cause for attachment to the place for he named his home in Frederick County, Va. after it.]
