John died June 4, 1666, leaving wife and children; William, John, James, Thomas, Nathaniel, Joseph, and daughters, Susanna, Elizabeth, Mary.

The following are extracts from his will, filed September 25, 1666 by Mr. William Hubbard Jr and Symon Thompson.

I give to my son John twenty pounds.

To son William five shillings when he is of age; to him and his brother John I bequeath no more because their uncle hath undertaken to give sufficient portions. To my daughters Susanna and Elizabeth I give ten shillings apiece at the day of their marriage, or when they are 20 yrs of age; to whom also I give no more because their grandfather (Thomas Emerson) hath lately given them portions.

I make my wife and my son James executors but in case my wife shall marry; my will is that James shall have the disposing of my whole estate; until his other brother come of age. Son James shall pay his mother seven pounds a year during the time of her natural life, or else suffer her to enjoy thirds.

My estate to be divided into seven equal parts, and as much as one seventh part amounts shall be paid by my said executors to each of my children not already mentioned, viz. Thomas, Nathaniel, Joseph, Sarah and yet which is to be born, after they come of age, and my son James to enjoy the remainder to himself.

I desire the Honbl Mr Symonds and Major Denison would be overseers of this my last will.[3]
