    "Probate Records. Vol. IV, 1677 to 1687. Inventory on File:

    Phelps, Joseph, Simsbury. Invt. £84-09-06. Taken 5 March, 1683-4, by John Terry, Joshua Holcomb & John Case. The children: Joseph 17 years of age, Hannah 15, William 13 years, Sarah 11 years, and Timothy 4 years of age.

    Court Record, Page 87—6 March, 1684: An Invt. of the Estate of Joseph Phelps was exhibited in Court, proven & ordered to be recorded. And this Court grants Adms. to the Widow, £6 of the Personal Estate & 1-3 of the Real Estate during her natural life, and to the Eldest son £22, and to the rest of the Children £11 apeice. And Timothy Phelps, Thomas Barber and John Terry are desired to be Overseers.

    See File: The Petition of Mary Phelps, Relict to Joseph Phelps, of Symsbury, To the Honourable County Court now sitting at Hartford, Humbly showeth: That your poor Petitioner, when shee married to Joseph Phelps, was a widow, And was left by her former husband in somewhat a comfortable Condition. And after shee was married to this man, carried a considerable Estate with her to the value of £40 or £50, but since his decease is left in a very helpless Condition; having but £6 allowed In Moveable estate, with the third of the Land for life, which will not yield above 20 Shillings per Annum, which is but a very small matter to maintain me, having a young child left By Joseph Phelps, my deceased husband, to be brought up out of it. Having therefore heard of the Readyness of this Court to hear the cry & to help the fatherless and the Widow, made me Bold humbly to move your honours that some more of the Estate may be settled upon me for the Bringing up of the Child. However, if the matter be difficult, that at least you would be pleased to order that I might have that mare and Cow that is left and was part of my own Estate which I carried with me when I married my late husband. Hoping your honours will take the matter into serious Consideration, I shal not farther enlarge, but, begging Gods presence with you, rest your humble Petitioner.

    Northapt, 28 August, 1684. MARY PHELPS."
