The petition of Joseph Palmer, Benjamin Palmer, Samuel Palmer, Obadiah Palmer and Thomas Palmer, sons of William Palmer of Westchester, and Martha Palmer, his widow, to Gov. Francis Lovelace, states “that it hath pleased God to take away our father lately, with a sudden blow of death, and without sickness, only a distemper he hath had on him many years, which wee could not conceive to be mortal. And left no will but verbally stating that having but little property he intended it to go to his wife, in respect she was stricken in years.” They request that their mother be made administratrix. Which was granted April 26, 1670.

Inventory taken by Consider Wood and Francis Feahs, mentions 20 acres of upland, 16 acres of meadow, 1 house Lot 2.5 acres.
