He was appointed an executor of his father's 1494 will, and I would assume
he was then over 21 years old. His own will was dated 23 August 1522
and proved in London on 14 October 1522. He then described himself as
John Bysshe "of the Capell of Ukkefeld" and stated the he was "hole
in mynde and fyt in bodye". He left legacies to the churches in
Burstow, Buxted, Uckfield, South Malling, and to the church where he was to
be buried. His eldest son William was appointed the executor,
and John Snat, William Smyth and Robert Tyknor as
overseers. The witnesses to his will were Robert Bankehowse,
John Snatt, Thomas Cails(?), William Day and Thomas
Delf. John also left legacies to his Godchildren, William
Smythe, John Delf and Margret Hafilden. At the time
of his death he held the Manor of Redyngherst, lying in the parishes of "Craule,
Haston, Gylford and Shallford". Also mentioned in his will were,
Richard Stone, Edmund Gray and Joane Chamberleyn.

Grandfather, may have been born before or about 1500. He married
