[1] Charity [Wadland][Kinsman] Elliot died Feb 1641/42

[2] Bridget Kinsman died in 1639

[3] Father in law in this context must mean step-father, i.e. Charity [Wadland] Kinsman had remarried to John Elliot

[4] In 1641 Wilmott would have been 11 years old. The death of her mother in the previous month occasioned this new admon. There should be another admon issued closer to the death of Nathaniel but this has not survivied.
