[1] Charity [Wadland][Kinsman] Elliot died Feb 1641/2

[2] Bridget Kinsman died in 1639

[3] Daniel Wadland is named as brother in law to Nathaniel Kinsman in his will

[4] In 1642 Hannah would have been 14 years old.

[5] Two months earlier Admon of this estate had been granted to John Elliot, step-father to Hannah and her sister Wilmot. It is not obvious what brought about this second Admon. John Elliot did not die until 1645. Wilmot died in September 1642. Perhaps the two girls just didn’t get on with their step-father and pleaded with their uncle to take them in.
