They lived in the house on the Gaunte given him by his father. This was a passageway on the south of the church of St. Michaels. He is also mentioned in the will of his brother William in 1613 as "brother Joseph Wilbore deceased". He received also from his father a grove called Hollis Grove, sometimes called Halls Grove, situated partly in Braintree and partly in Bocking. This grove passed eventually to his widow and his four sons.
Widow Mary or Marie, as she is called in the will, made her will (No. 8) on to Nov. 1620, which was proved in 1623. In it she gives to son William the shop next the street and the little garden. Also to son John and Joan, his wife, and son Nicholas. Son William to have the rest and residue.

Sept. 1583 (see will No. 4).

Nicholas2 Wilbore was originally of Colchester, but in 1548 we find him in Braintree, when he sold Le stone house to John2 Jr., and Alice Wilbore of Colchester. He was very well to do with much real estate and other property in Braintree, Stisted, and Bocking. He evidently hired much help in the woolen business and also owned a large hill in Braintree which was used by him as pasturage for his sheep, called Skitts Hill. I think that we can place Nicholas in the class with the Pay-cock family, a well-known family of woolen merchants of the sixteenth century, whose house is still in existence in Coggeshalle, co. Essex.

According to Nicholas  will he owned the following real estate: In Braintree, Cherkson and the Gaunte. Tenement called Wolnes in Stisted, land he bought of Robert Polye called by the name of Cops Wood, Blumster, Hamstall, his house called the checker with tenements, a field called Bartletts, The Slade, a meadow called Wheland farm in Stisted, a grove called Hollis Grove and a coppiehold shop in the market place of Braintree with two rooms over same, and a hill called Skitts Hill.
