The probate section is in Latin. A translation is:

On the nineteenth day of the month of November AD
1595 there was granted administration
\and letters of guardianship*/ of all and singular the goods rights and credits
of Richard Crumplehere deceased, late, while he lived, parishioner of
Winterborne Kingston, a peculiar jurisdiction of the Dean of Salisbury,
?from intestacy**, to Richard Michell, Thomas Strangwayes gentleman,
Hubert Galton and John Galton during the minority of Thomas
Crumplehere ,son of the said deceased, in the person of John Symes
their proxy, sworn well and truly to administer and
to pay the debts … …
to render account … … … …
[standard form wording, heavily abbreviated, scrawled and not really worth puzzling out]

* the Latin is ac l’re Tutele.

** the original Latin is ab intestat’, which doesn’t really make sense in the context.

[Note 1]: E-mail from Eve McLaughlin dated 1 Mar 2009: "wheat and vatches - that is vetches, a pea like plant which grows naturally among the wheat as a weed, but does have a fair amount of nutriritonal value, so was not just ploughed in. A toberne is presumably a 'testerne' or tester, bedhead, which might be carved of panneled wood, or if they were really decadent, even padded."
