    In a document presented at June Term, 1679, John West, aged about fifty-eight years, deposed that being present when William Dodge, Sr., and John Proctor, Sr., made up the match between John Dodge and Sarah Procter, son and daughter of Dodge and Procter, said William Dodge promised to give a parcel of land with his son John, and said Proctor engaged to give £40 with his daughter Sarah. Dodge further said "Notwithstanding what is given, what shall these young beginners do for household stuff," and deponent proposed that Dodge should give his son John £10 and Proctor should give his daughter £5 to be paid at the merchant's, to which proposition they both agreed [ EQC 5:195].
