Local Notes:

Property15 Mar 1693/94Hannah (Buss) Wheeler's administration of her husband William's estate caused dissension among the children. Tolman abstracts a second agreement of 15 Mar 1694 which sets forth that "Whereas William Wheeler late of Concord died some time since, possessed of several lands of which he had no legal conveyance as also of a competency of personal or moveable estate,—but as yet there hath been no final settlement of said estate,—and there being a considerable part of said moveable estate is wasted one way or other and doth not appear, and the rest of which is disposed of by Hannah, relict of the sd Wm Wheeler, and for a final settlement of the whole remaining part of the sd estate, amongst the children of the sd Wm Wheeler, and to prevent any further trouble and contention about the premises and to settle peace and unity that may be lasting, they, viz: William Wheeler, John Wheeler and George Wheeler, sons to the sd Wm deceased, upon their own accounts, and Nicholas Shavalley on the behalf of Rebeckah his wife of sd Concord, and James Burley of Ipswich on the behalf of Elizabeth his wife, both daughters of sd Wm Wheeler dec'd, do agree in manner and form following," as to the division of the property, by virtue of which agreement Wm (16) as oldest son had a double share of the real estate, and John (19) and George (20) and the two younger sons divided the rest, and the personal property was parcelled out among the daughters. The land was all in the Nine Acre Corner district, and some of it is in the family to this day."6
