In Obedience to an Order of Court we have appraised the Estate of John Payne dec'ed this 27th June 1698 ) Sworn before me Tho's Tanner, William Haslerigg ) App'rs Westm'l'd Sct Francis Wright Elizabeth Payne At a Court held for the said County the 29th day of June 1698 Elizabeth Payne made Oath the within is a full and Perfect Inventory of all the Estate of John Payne dec'ed, yet come to her Knowledge Teste James Westcomb CWC

[Note: The original 1697 and 1698 Deeds and Will Book records of the will and inventory no longer exist. The clerk transcribed those original records into new books in 1801. The County Court Orders record of proving the will is the original from 1697/98. The inventory apparently contains an error in the numbers, since they do not add up to the total stated in the record, even when an adjustment is made for the obvious error in the line item pertaining to lumber, bottles, pots, Bibles and a sermon book.]
