  3. [S974] Almon D. Hodges, "Henry Andrews of Taunton", dates given as "probably about."
  4. [S975] Josiah H. Drummond, "Henry Andrews of Taunton", 51:454. "According to the Plymouth record (printed), his will was dated March 13, 1652, and the inventory of his estate returned February 10, 1652; which of these dates is erroneous, I have not been able to determine." This discrepancy is explained in an afterword 52:19-20:
    Will of Henry Andrews, the elder, of Taunton. dated "March 13 Ano Dom 1652." Inventory taken '"the tenth day of ffebruary Anno Dom. 1652." Both will and inventory “exhibited at the Court holden att Plym: aforesaid the first of June 1653.” The apparent discrepancy of these dates disappears when they are read according to the common custom at Taunton and elsewhere, about this period, of beginning to date the new year on March first, instead of the legal twenty-fifth. The above will was dated March 13. 1651. O.S. or March 23, 1652, N.S.; and the inventory was taken Feb. 10, 1652, 0.S. or Feb. 20, 1653, N.S. The will makes wife Mary sole executrix and residuary legatee, with use during life or or widowhood of nearly all the real estate; gives to daughter Mary Hedges [Hodges, as abundantly proved], wife of William Hedges, a house and land with reversionary interest to her son John Hedges, who is to have also a silver cup; to daughters Sarah and Abigail, 130 pounds money to be equally divided between them, and also “a certaine peece of land called the necks of land” in equal shares; to son Henry, the residue of the real estate, with his longest fowling piece, best suit of apparel and best coat; to Rev. Mr. Streete of Taunton, five pounds; and to Elizabeth Harvey, one of the poor of the church, a cow for her children. [Plym. Col. Wills, i: part 1: 116, 117.]
