URL title: John Belaine Will
In January 1679 John MOULD petitioned that he had married the daughter of Francis POSEY, whose widow married John VALLAINE, who died possessed of 300 acres of land, besides goods and chattel, and before his death by will bequeathed one half of his estate real and personal unto his wife and her two children she had by Francis POSEY to be equally shared among the three, and the other half to his two children he had by his said wife, and after the death of John VILLAINE, Alexander SMITH married his widow and had the original will of said VILLAINE, so that the petioner supposes there was never any administration on the estate, nor accounting of his share of the estate in right of his wife. The Petitioner asked the court to summons Alexander SMITH to bring in the will and his accounting of the estate.

John BELAINE from his will:
12 April 1669 Anne POSEY, "daughter of Francis Posey decd. doe at this
present before the solemnity of Marriage betwixt Jno. Mould" acknowledged
her 1/4 share bequeathed by her "father in Law Jno. BELAINE."
23 May 1670, Jno. POSEY acknowledged full receipt of everything left him
by the will of his "father in Law Jno. BELAINE."

Belaine" acknowldged receipt from Alexander SMITH, "who married the Relict
of the sd. Jno Belaine" of her portion of the estate.
