    [The addenda corrects the identification of the Benjamin of Lebanon that is found on p. 18.]
    "The newly discovered will of Walter, Sr., makes it quite probable that Benjamin, of Lebanon, was the son of Walter, Sr." [Benjamin was given land in Saconet (Little Compton) by the 1685/6 will of Walter, Sr., and was known as Benjamin of Little Compton in 1703 when he purchased land in Lebanon.]
    "Dean says: 'Benjamin was a solder in King Phillip's war and lost his life." [Suggests the will makes it clear that the Benjamin this referred to was not Walter's son, but was a different man.]
