john sudbury, leatherseller of london.

Is there anyone who can do some research at the London archives,please. John Sudbury was a leatherseller and printer in London, his will is dated 1620 and he died between Dec. 1620 and Jan 1621. He lived in Tower Street and owned property in Rood Lane. He was in partnership with George Humble, his nephew,also a leatherseller and printer. They printed the maps of John Speed. He founded a charity in Egmanton, Notts, which was added to by Christopher Sudbury,goldsmith of London.He died around 1669. Christopher had family living in Egmanton, mentioned in his will.What I would like to know is the relationship between the two men, and what the link between John and Egmanton was that caused him to set up the charity. I can't find the link between the two places.

It's quite a lot to ask of anyone, but if anyone can I would very,very grateful.

Many thanks,
