    "One of the most influential lawyers to serve the Crown during the first half of the 15th century, Fray rose from relative obscurity to become chief baron of the Exchequer, and thus provides us with a particularly striking example of the 'self-made man' whose success was achieved through a combination of talent, hard work and personal ambition. Nothing is known for certain about his early life, although he may well have been the son of the John Fray who appears in 1384 as the owner of property in both Great Waltham, Essex, and the Hertfordshire village of Cottered (where he either bought or inherited land of his own).
