    In his will, dated 3 April 1651 and proved 25 June 1672, "Robert Lovell of Weymouth" bequeathed "my dwelling house & the land adjoining to it to my loving wife to possess & enjoy all the time of her widowhood," and "my dwelling house & land before mentioned unto my son John after my wife's widowhood"; to "my son John four acres of land that was of Carpenter's & three acres of land bought of Hart & … half half the meadow that I bought of Smith & half the meadow that I bought of Holebrooke & … my lot by the mill which is eighteen acres"; to "my son James my Great Lot which is thirty-six acres & … the other half of the meadow before mentioned that was bought of Smith & likewise that of Holebrooke's"; to "my son-in-law Andrew Forde one of my heifers"; to "Andrew Ford's eldest son one of my heifers"; to "Andrew Ford's youngest son "a calf; to "John Lovell's son my yearling bull"; "my loving wife to be my sole executrix" (Suffolk Probate, 7:217)

    ..."He died at Weymouth shortly before 25 Jun 1672." [I am not sure what they base this on. THEORY: I think it more likely that he died closer to 1651 but the will was not probated until his wife died.]
