Will

Mary was named an heir in the will of her husband John Dunham, dated 2 February 1692 in Barnstable, Barnstable Co., Plymouth Colony, New England. Mary and the couple's daughter Mercy were named to be co-executrixs.2
She was named executrix and an heir in the will of her husband John Dunham, dictated 1 January 1697 at his Dwelling House, Barnstable, Plymouth Colony, New England. The oral will was witnessed by his siblings Mary and Susanna (Dunham) Hamlin and their husbands, the brothers, James and Bartholomew Hamlin and Joseph Crocker (presumably a "disinterested third party"?), who committed their recollections to writing 4 January 1697.
The witnesses recalled that John "... gave it all to his wife Mary Dunham to be wholy at her dispose".
The witnesses signed their names, with the exception of Mary (Dunham) Hamlin and Bartholomew Hamlin, both of whom signed by their marks.
The will was probated and administration granted to John's widow on 15 January 1697.3
