Child portion?

I am looking at a will made in 1562 of John Blythe. He is survived by a wife Agnes, sons John Richard William and daughter Anne and I think that his wife was entitled to one third of his property then the land was distributed amongst his children but also in his will he mentions owing a childs portion to Jerome Blythe and William Blythe, who are certainly not his children, Does it make sense that these are his brothers?
