Herts RO 302AW19, William's admininstration, is not on the microfilm.

William Pigot was a son of Thomas Pigot of Whaddon and Doddershall, the well-known lawyer. He was probably the brother of Robert Pigot, who was one of the biggest landholders in Winslow in 1556, but that is not certain.

boulders: probably cobbles (OED, boulder n.1, 1)

dornyxe = dornick: "A silk, worsted, woollen, or partly woollen fabric, used for hangings, carpets, vestments" (OED)

suters = suiter: "A round board placed between two cheeses in the press" (OED)
