      On 2 April 1688, Edward Jones, husband of Mary Field, and the brother in law of Thomas Jr. and John Field, petitioned for the administration of first Thomas Field estate and then for John's estate (both brother's died around the same time).Upon pet'n of Edw'd Jones who marryed ye sister of Thomas Field and John Field dec'd, order for adm'n with ye will annex'd is granted on ye court p(er) ye oaths of ye witnesses subscribed and ye exec'r therein named being likewise dec'd before probate of the same.Upon pe't of Edw'd Jones who marryed ye sister of John Field, dec'd. Order for commission of Adm'n granted him on ye estate of ye said dec'd in he right as being next of kin to ye said dec'dt.Apparently Thomas died first but had a will (now lost) which named his bother John as executor and heir leaving him land, cattle, hides, cloth, books, household items and miscellaneous articles used on a farm of that period. John died before he could execute Thomas' will.Edward Jones then petitioned the court to be the executor of both estates since he was married to their sister. Permission was granted and then Edward and Mary inherited the estate.
