Quinton Pray apparently owed Capt. Thomas Savage and Mr. John Payne £40. In consideration of his son John Pray and sons-in-law Richard Thayer and Henry Neale agreeing to pay the debt, Quinton granted them the rights to all his household stuff, crops and cattle, and his right to cows and land that Quinton had apparently previously acquired from his son-in-law John Hardman.
