      [Note by compiler: This will was executed on May 14, 1634, but was not proven until May 5, 1651. It appears from this will that the testator's wife was named Margaret, and that she was pregnant at the time the will was executed. It also appears that at the time the will was executed, the testator had seven sons (Anthony, Humpfrey, William, Edward, John, Richard and Henry) and three daughters (whose names are not listed in the will). The testator's son, Edward, served as administrator of the testator's estate because the executor named in the will died before the will was proven.]
