Seeking info on the William PASSMORE in Philadelphia who wrote his LWT 9 Mar 1723. Anyone know anything about his wife and descendants? He refers to his brother-in-law still in London (Joshua Fielding)...was his wife's maiden name Fielding or does the bro-in-law perhaps refer to a husband of his own sister? Any info appreciated on his children and descendants. This William is the brother of the John in Chester/Kennet.
Copy of Will transcript follows:
