I am indebted to Sue Djabuti for this information. Children were:

child i. George VOYCE was born about 1491 in Horsham Sussex. (561)
child ii. William VOYCE was born about 1493 in Horsham Sussex. (562) William is shown as Sir William in his entry on the IGI. Some of his descendants have assumed that this is because he went on to become a Priest, and that the Sir was a courtesy title. However, I have seen no direct evidence that this is in fact so other than a mention in another Will that if William is able to say the necessary prayers for the repose of the soul, then it will not be necessary to hire a priest! In his brother George's Will, William is referred to as Sir William, and yet George leaves money for an 'Exhibition' for William 'if he is able to go to Oxford or Cambridge' which he would have to have done in order to become a priest. So obviously at that time William is not ordained, and yet his brother calls him Sir .
child iii. Richard VOYCE was born about 1495 in Horsham Sussex. (563)
child iv. Margery VOYCE was born about 1497 in Horsham Sussex. (564)
child9984 v. Henry VOYCE.
