Having therefore heard of the Readyness of this Court to hear the cry & to help the fatherlessand the Widow, made me Bold humbly to move your honours that some more of the Estate may be settled upon me for the Bringing up of the Child. However, if the matter be difficult, that at least you would be pleased to order that I might have that mare and Cow that is left and waspart of my own Estate which I carried with me when I married my laterhusband. Hoping your honours will take the matter into serious consideration, I shal not farther enlarge, but, begging Gods presence with you, rest your humble Petitioner. Northapt, 28 August, 1684.
