Capt. Samuel Welles
Facts and Events
Manwaring provides several entries from the Probate Records from 15 July 1675 (date of Inventory) to 21 July 1697 (lands given to apt. John Allyn, through Mrs. Allyn's widow's third, being recorded. The record includes and order dated 4 March 1696/7 that the widow's third shall be enjoyed by Mrs. Hannah Allyn (formerly Wells) "without Molestation from any person pretending any right hereto during her life."S2 The necessity for such an order and with proceedings spanning over 20 years, seems to indicate that settling Capt. Samuel Welles' estate was not easy and perhaps contentious.
