From "Duxbury Records"
10 October 1670--The town have given unto Francis West, about 30 acres
of land on the East side of Experience Mitchils lands near
Namasskeesit, of the same breadth with the said Mitchels his land, and
so extending eastward to a marked tree near a little run in a swamp,
abouth sixty rods distant from Mitchels land, the tree marked is a
maple tree William Pabodie, T. C.
Estate amounted to only 16:15:00 given to son Peter.
1606. Since Francis of Virginia was called a minor in his father's will of 1629, he could not have been born before ca. 1608. Furthermore, Francis senior requested in the will that his surviving third wife Jane take care of the son Francis. The general tone of this request suggests that Francis was either a young boy or in some way physically or mentally defective. It is unlikely that a healthy male in his late teens would have been in need of any special care. He might therefore have been born several years after 1608.
