    • At the time of his will he was living with his second wife, who was the widow of another early settler. He wishes the agreement made with her at the time of marriage carried out: - that she shall enjoy the annuity left her by her former husband without let or hinderance, as she always has done. He gives her certain rights in the house, giving her the exclusive right to the parlor for one year; also gives her all the money he leaves and she not to be accountable for it to anyone, also the great chest and the highest chair in the room where we live but these are to be restored at her death, or if she marries again, these go to a granddaughter. To son Jacob, he gives the house he lives in and land adjoining as now fenced, also salt marsh. To the three sons of my son Abraham, Robert, Abraham and Isaac, each a gun and to each of the two oldest a sword. They were at the time 2, 4, and six years old. He gives bequests to sons John and Isaac and an unmarried daughter. To each of his three married daughters, a cow and to one of them in addition, "my pewtr tankard and a pewter bowl." To Mary, daughter of son Abraham, a box with lock and key and six diaper napkins. All the rest of his effects go to his son Abraham, and after his death go to his oldest son Robert to be joint executors, son Abraham to have full power to act until his son be of age (he was six at date.) Care was taken that if this grandson [Robert] came into possession before the death of his mother she should not be debarred of her just rights (meaning dower, it is presumed) and also when coming into possession is to give his two brothers £20 each. He closed his will by appointing his "Loving friends" John Woodbridge and Nicholas Noyes, Overseers. His estate was appraised at £916 17s. Of this his real estate consisting of house, barn and orchard, 80 acres of upland, 80 acres of meadow and freehold was valued at £600: live stock at £90; furniture at £222 17s, which is rather out of proportion, but probably good furniture was disproportionately high and scarce and land plenty.
