Of course, there are no sources for ANY of the children made on that profile, so we can't assess anything, really.

What's the source for this will you quote above?

Source: Diocese of Rochester 1765, Centre for Kentish Studies
Transcribed by Peter Adams.  Same source for his wife, Sarah Kemble Cripps' will.
Thanks, it would be great to add this will text and its source citation to the profile(s) in question, directly. Do you have an account here?

Going to mark this topic for the Integrators in case you don't.

I would suggest you visit an academic library (see for a copy of "A Dictionary of American and English Law with definitions of Technical terms of the Canon and Civil Laws" There are some early versions. Question if a child recieves his inheritance prior to death of  parent should he be included in the will?  See primogeniture.
