--of Wethersfield

Richard Beckley's will, dated May 1689, mentions an older daughter, SARAH, probably by first wife unknown, baptized elsewhere, before 1640. The will also mentions Richard's wife is FRANCES and he orders his son NATHANIEL to "maintain" his mother, my said wife" ... so Frances is probably the same wife he married 2nd in 1640.
