The Branford Deeds (Col. 2, pg. 78) show that Abigail Ball, of Newark, “receipted to brother Blatchly of Guilford for her portion from estate of her mother Susanna Blachly.” Also regarding the disposition of her estate, her husband “Richard Bristow of Guilford returns the estate of Susanna Bristow formerly Blatchlye to be disposed of according to her non-cuperative will.”. Richard Bristow died in September of 1683
