Library notes
Will: "My bookes I estimate to ye value of one hundred & fifty pounds (though they cost me much more) & because they are of use only to my two sonnes Seaborn & John, therefore I give them unto them both, to divided by equall portions." Each son was to receive £100 worth, and if the total did not amount to that much, cash was to be provided from the residue of the estate.
