    • I William Heath of Roxbury, Co. Suff. ... give unto my son Joseph Heath, "Marsh in Muddy River," ... This marsh my Hond. Father Peleg Heath bought of James Morgan, as appears by his Deed bearing Date the Third of November one thousand six hundred fifty & one, & my father, Mother, nor I ever sold on foot of it that ever I knew of except one acre my mother sold to Capt. Seall Ruggles wch I bot of him again. But Jacob Chamberlain of Roxbury, committed Trespass on the most Northerly Corner of this my Land in the year one thousand seven hundred; I would have then pursued him for his Trespass, but when I came to see for my deed of said land behold it was stole out of my chest, and I saw it not again till about twenty years after & then it was given me by a stranger in the night, as tho' it had been a Letter in the Road, but when I came to light I found not one word in it only this stolen Deed Inclosed & then I was foreclosed in the Law, but Joseph you shall have the Deed of said Land and I hereby desire & Impower you by application to the Honble. General Court to bring Jacob Chamberlain Jr. to Tryal of his Title to my Salt Marsh, you will find the Deed he pretends to hold it by is no older than the false Record. I lost so many hundred pounds by & altho' this Record has since been proved false in both Superior & inferior Courts & some restitution of my money, yet I have never had any restitution of this my salt marsh to this day.
      ... the will mentions wife Anna, sons William, Joseph, Samuel, also his father Peleg Heath, daughters Hannah, Susannah, Margaret, his children's uncle Joseph Weld, three children by my 2nd wife Anna Heath.
