    Will The following notes about Robert Bent’s will come from Ralph Dean Clark’s website “Ancestry of Abigail Joyce” dated 28 Jul 2002 at http://ralphinla.rootsweb.com/joycea.htm

    Harold N. Bent, in The Bents of Wisconsin, quoted his will. Although the present author's
    copy of the page bearing the will is missing the leftmost four characters of each line, it
    was thought best to attempt to reproduce it imperfectly. Mr. Felton's abstract (NEHGR
    V.49) left out all mention of the ewes, and suppressed the testator's apparent distrust
    of foreign money. Doubtful words are enclosed in <>.

    "In the name of God Amen I Robert Bent of Penton Grafton in the parish of Wayhill
    being sick in body but of perfect memry doe make my last will and Testament and
    thereby I doe commend my vnto God, and doe bequeath vnto the Church a
    noble, and vnto the poore tenne groats "and I bequeath vnto my Sonne Robert Bent
    fortie shillings, and to my Sonne John Bent fortie shillings to his sonne Robert I giue
    a young cowe, and to William Bent the sonne of the said John Bent two yewes and to
    Peter Bent the sonne of the said John Bent two yewes and to Anis Bent the daughter
    of the said John, I giue two yewes. "I giue to William Baker my sonn in lawe & my
    Daughter Dennys his wife twenty pounds of good and lawfull money of England and
    to Elizabeth Baker the daughter of the said William I giue nine pounds, and to

    lawfull money of England, and if either of them die I leave it to the disposing of their
    mother my Daughter Dennys. "And vnto my Daughter Annis Barnes I giue pounds of
    good and lawfull money of England and to her sonne young Richard Barnes I give
    pounds of good & lawfull money of England. "And I giue

    my sister the wife of William Noyse I one bushell of wheate "And the rest of my goods
    I bequesthe vnto my wife whome I make my Execuetor of this my last will &
    Testament." Harold Bent notes at the end of the will, "Beginning at 'my will is' the
    remainder is in different hand writing." That would be at this point: "my will is that
    the legaceases giuen vnto my sonne William Baker and his wife to be paid vnto them
    twelfe months after my deses. and the tenn pound vnto my daughter Joanne to be
    paid vnto hir the 23 day of march nixt; and ye fife pound I giuen vnto my Cussen
