A donation to a “godly preaching minister”

In his will of 1674 Francis Allyn of Lea left 40s [£2] each year to maintain godly preaching minister at Dethick. But if no suitable minister could be found, 10s [50p] was to be given each year to poor of Lea and Holloway until suitable minister found.
I have not found a record yet to see if a suitable minister was located
