This brings up the personal interest of the deed, for there can be no doubt that all three feoffees (besides Byngham) were benefactors of Godshouse. It is provided in the statutes of Godshouse 3 that daily prayers shall be offered for the soul of'John Brokley, formerly Alderman of London', and in the statutes of the Lady Margaret the names of William Byngham, priest, and John Brokley are specifically named, after her kindred,* for inclusion in the daily prayers of each fellow. The other two names 1 King's, A, 89; where, by a blunder, he is styled Johannes Byngham, ckricus; the reference to Byngham is, however, only incidental.

Sir John Fray,5 second baron of the Exchequer from 1435, chief baron from 1437 till 1448, on the commissions of the peace for various counties and for the town of Cambridge from 1429 onwards, was in intimate connection with Byngham in various ways, and the friendship may date from this early period through friends whom we know to have been common to them both. Fray was one of the king's commissioners for the purchase of a site for King's College, and on that account may have been useful to Byngham.

Amongst the friends made by Byngham at this period was John Carpenter, town clerk of London from 1417 to 1441, member of parliament for the city in 1436 and again in 1439, and founder of the City of London School. The bond between the older man and the younger is probably to be found in their interest in education. Carpenter died about 1441, and his biographer says upon this matter: 1 'Master William Byngham, another distinguished promoter of learning, had this friendly notice taken of him by Carpenter', and he quotes the following passage from Carpenter's will: 'Also I give and bequeath to Master William Byngham, as a memorial of me, that book which Master Roger Dymok* made, contra duodecitn errores et heresesLollardomtn, and gave to King Richard, and which book John Wilok gave to me'.
