In his will [29th April 1613], Michael left

He left £40 to his brother Daniel, £20 to his brother Matthew and £20 to his sister Sara.

[Amongst other bequests, he] bequeathed £40 to the school at Bingley to be disposed of at the discretion of Nicholas Walker of Gawthorp and Thomas Howgill schoolmaster.

He left ten shillings to Mary Stansfield wife of John Stansfield of Halifax.

Probate [14th May 1613] by Nicholas Walker.

There is a codicil [probated 20th April 1621] in which 4 people named Walker swore that on the day after his will, Michael Broadley had said that the money was actually to go to Thomas Howgill, and when he left the school, it should go with him.

This was in response to a complaint by Daniel Broadley of Bingley, John Oldfield and Thomas Hudson that the school at Bingley did not get the £40 and it had been divided between Nicholas Walker and Thomas Howgill
