And so at last we come to the last document in the Probate File
of Joseph Ellingwood Sr., a listing of debts owed by the estate. I
see some familiar family names in this list. Joseph's youngest
sister Eunice had married a Uriah Cram, so it's possible Benjamin
Cram is related by marriage. Also, the Cram's were the owners of a
brickyard so it is likely Joseph purchased his bricks from them  

Samuel Punchard Jr. is another possible relation: Joseph Ellingwood
Jr. was married to a Mary Punchard.

Finally, Levi Spaulding while not related to the Ellingwoods may be
related to me. My 5x great grandfather Lot Spaulding lived in the
same area as Joseph Sr and was a contemporary so there may be a link
to this Levi Spaulding.

Again, all monetary values are in English pounds, shillings and pence.
I apologize again for the wandering column of figures.
