About William Cox

Page 109.--WM. COX, New York. "In the name of God, Amen. I, William Cox, merchant." I bequeath to my well beloved servant, Jacob Mayle, €100 in money, to see my books and accounts settled, and make him one of my executors. I leave to my loving friend, Richard Jones, €20, and make him executor. I leave to my mother, Alice Cox, alias Bone, €500, to Dorothy Lee, €10. "I give and bequeath to my dear and loving wife Sarah, which house she pleases to have, to her and heirs. I give and bequeath to Samuel Bradley, my brother in law, my other house which I bought of Mr. John Robinson, or that house I now live in, my wife taking her choice."..... The rest of his will is available at New York databases online
