Hoby is identified there as a servant to Cromwell12 and was known to have served in the embassy household of Hawkins. He was an ambassador himself by 1538, and became a prominent counsellor under Edward VI. 13 It thus seems very likely that Swerder also served in the embassy household with Hoby, and that the delay between Hawkins’s death and the quitclaim resulted from the continued activities of one or both of these executors abroad.
