Will

Elizabeth Wood prepared a will dated 23 July 1677, however, she died before she was able to sign it. Nonetheless, the court admitted the will for probate because all of her children had agreed to abide by her wishes as she had indicated them in the will.
     Elizabeth left twenty shillings each to her sons, John and Samuel, by her first husband, John Potter and the same amount to their daughter Hannah whom she refers to as "my daughter Brooks".
     Son John Parker was to have her house (where he was living) along with the accompanying land and meadow; daughter Mary was to receive her small bible; daughter Hope her "best sute of apparrell"; the remainder of her estate was to be divided equally among the daughters, Mary (Hall), Hope (Cooke), and Lydia (Thomas); sons John Potter and John Parker were to serve as co-executors and to receive 10 shillings each "for their care and paynes therein".13
