    JOHN HEWES of Royston, Herts., chandler, made his will 20 June, the 19th year of the reign of King James. He appointed his wife, Mary, sole executrix, and nominated his brother, Thomas Hewes, and brother-in-law, Joseph Foote, as supervisors and overseers. His legacies to his sons were made payable at their reaching their twenty-fourth year. Those to the daughters at their twenty-first year. It is probable that none of the children was born earlier than 1603. It is also evident that the eldest child was born not long after that date. The legacies were as follows: to Jonathan, forty pounds; to Joshua, thirty pounds; to the daughters, Mary, Elizabeth, Sarah, Hester, Lidia, Phebe, and Anne, each twenty pounds. The will was proved 21 Aug, 1621, and is recorded in register Dale, quire 87, Prerogative Court of Canterbury at London.
    Royston is a village in the extreme northeastern corner of Hertfordshire, on the border of Cambridgeshire, and is on the main road from Hertford to Cambridge, somewhat nearer the latter than the former place. It is about forty miles north of London. Chauncey says of Royston that the town lies in five parishes, two-thirds of the town being within the parishes of Therfield and Barkway in Hertfordshire, the remainder lying in the parishes of Melbourn, Kneesworth and Bassingbourn in Cambridgeshire. The church of Royston is of the diocese of London.
    The Footes were a well-to-do family. Reference to the pedigree will show many of their intermarriages, and prominent members. It was in this circle of relatives that Joshua Hewes grew up. He thus was connected with a family which had much to do with New England.
