Misc. Notes
Pg 34 By a will Benjamin, who had married, required his wife as executrix to see that the agreement which “I have with my honored father and mother, John and Hepzibah Eddy touching their annual allowance shall be well and faithfully observed.” (Dukes Probate, I, 27). In the month following Benjamin’s death, Hannah, the widow, evidently being desirous of being relived of the support of the aged couple, transferred the entire property to John Manter, the husband of John’s daughter Hannah (Dukes Probate, I. 27), in consideration of his assuming the “Agreement between John & Benjamin Eddy to the value of £9 annually for the support of John Eddy and wife living in one end of the house.”70246
