out sometimes. John Moore Jr.'s file is a case in point. The inventory and the list of expenses
were submitted in Fall 1702/3, but the division of the land among the heirs didn't happen
until ten years later in April 1713/4.I have no idea why it took so long.
Here's the image of the estate inventory taken in October 1702/3 It's value was set at 352 pounds:
And most of that value was in the land John Moore Jr. owned, listed at the top of the page:
In November John Moore 3rd submitted his expenses administrating the estate. It looks like they
came to 46 pounds, including a payment of 30 pounds to "my mother Mary Moore".
I'll discuss the division of the real estate next.
