He was a distinguished judge, with an estate and residence in Wales at Gwern-yfed near Talgarth, and in England at Kingston Bagpuze in Berkshire, where he died and was buried in January 1612/3.

Edited by Weaver, 1886). 2 Sir John Harley married, Joan, dau. of John Hacluit of Eyton (Collins' Peerage). 3 In Bacton, Herefordshire. 4 She was the third wife of John Abrahall of Abrahall. 5 This is incorrect: the Lady Weobley (Agnes, dau. of Thomas Crophull) was wife of Sir Walter Devereux. Their son Walter married Anne, only child and heir of William, lord Ferrers, and was summoned to Parliament 1 Edw. IV. as lord Ferrers. William Herbert, 1st earl of Pembroke of the second creation, married Anne, sister of Walter, lord Ferrers. 6 Michel, the equivalent of much or great; i.e., Sir Rees the elder. 7 Trwyn dwn, fractured nose. 8 James Touchet, lord Audley. 9 Base daughter. 10 Simon Milbourn of Tillington in Herefordshire; he was never knighted. 11 The celebrated Sir David Gam, who was knighted as he lay dying at the battle of Agincourt.
