About Elizabeth Davis

The will of Richard Windowe of Gloucester, dated May 20, 1665, indicates that the father of Anthony and Elizabeth was dead, and their mother was perhaps Elinor, the second wife of Richard Bennett. He left Anthony his 'son-in-law' [stepson] his working tools, cloth, one musket, and a heifer calf. '...and tntony Bennit do I leve and commit into the hands of his unkel [RIchard] Bennit, if he pleas to axcept him, and if not, I commit him to the Cair of my overseers...' Apparently his uncle declined his care, for: 'Anthony Bennet being committed to the care of James Stevens, William Hascall and Jacob Daivs for Rich. Window, his father-in-law [stepfather], the court on March 27, 1666, ordered that he remain under their care until he chooses a guardian.' The uncle, Richard Bennett made his will on June 21, 1677, with a codicil dated July 6, 1677. The will was proved on Sept. 8, 1677, naming his cousin [nephew], Anthony Bennett of Bass River.
