THURSTON RAYNOR, Southampton. “I, Thurston Raynor, being in perfect memory, yet stricken in age, and not knowing how long my dayes shall continue in this world, do make this my last will and testament.” Leaves to son Joseph 28 acres of land “coming to me from the Towne,” upon the last Division, which is already laid out to his own proportion in said Division. To son Jonathan one-half of all housing and lands, when he comes to the age of twenty-one. Leaves to wife, Martha, the use of the other half for life, and then to go to his son Jonathan. Leaves £10 each “to my other five children” (not named). Makes wife sole executrix, and “request my dear friends, namely my brother-in-law Samuel Clarke and my cousin Mr. John Howell to be overseers of my will.”

Dated July 6, 1667. Witnesses, John Howell, Henry Pierson. Proved November 4, 1667.
