ment in the presence of Hen.y Coldron John Parrey John Elliss

There is some writing in the margin very difficult to make out
...23rd..... 1657 then illegible possibly to the effect that that was when Dunes died but that is speculation unless someone else can read it.

I shall try and fill in the blanks where possible but it isn't a clear copy unfortunately
