Return to GEORGE DAVIS Will of Sarah (Clarke) Davis Rist 20 Sept 1697 , Middlesex county Probate Court 9:399

The will of Sarah Rist of Redding, written 20 Sept. 1697, probated 15 May 1698, touching the worldly estate that my former husband George Davis and my son Benjamin Davis gave to me by their last wills for to dispose of, give and devise the same as follows:

to grandson Joshua Davis all ye Homestead.... that is ye same that I now dwell in.. with all the lotts, divisions and dividents. . . .thereto belonging, Joshua to pay to my daughters the legacies hereafter mentioned:

to daughter Sarah Cole, to daughter Hannah Boutell, to son-in-law Timothy Wylye [mentioned as William Clarke's nephew and son of Thomas Clarke's neighbor], to daughter Mary Damon, to Susannah Richardson.

Executor: Joshua Davis, grandson.

Witnesses: Benjamin Burnap, Dorcas Burnap, Elizabeth Arnold. [Middlesex Co. Prob. 9:399.]

This last witness was the orphaned granddaughter of Thomas Clarke of Reading. Elizabeth Arnold was born at Reading 17 June 1079, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Clarke) Arnold; she married in Woburn, 22 Dec. 1699, James Richardson. At the time she signed this will both her parents and both her Clarke grandparents were dead.

Was she then living with her next of kin, her grandfather's sister Sarah Rist
