Transcribers Note: There are several Claims made
against the Estate. However the copy is difficult
to read. The only names deciphered were Thomas,
William and Ellinor Cannon who claimed £2.
The widow petitioned the Court for a hearing.
Her first name could be “Judith”. Apparently her
deceased husband had been named Executor of [Alish]
Crain. There is money owed her deceased husband and
she requests a hearing to appoint her Executor of
the Craine will.
