Approvd & ordd to be recorded. Recorded in Book 6 Page 5 & 6 & C To the Honbl Court of Probate for the District of Norwich in Connecticut. The subscriber being appointed by this Court on the 15th of June AD 1791 to make sale of so much of the real estate of Roger Sterry Esqr late of Preston deceased under the incumbrance of the widow dower as to raise the sum of eighty five pounds to pay a debt which appears against sd estate together with incident charges on said sale & to pay said debt & make report to this Court an also on the 29th day of May AD appointed the subscriber to make sale of so much of the real estate of sd deceased under the incumbrance aforesaid as to raise a further sum of six pounds four shillings & two pence besides the incident charges to pay sd charges in order to compleat the payment of the debts against sd estate & to make report __. And now the subscriber begs leave to report that agreeable to the terms of sd two several orders of Court he has made sale of one certain small lot of land of about three acres & three quartes of the estate of sd deceased under the incumbrance of the widows dower at 30/ pr acre and given conveyance of the same to David Meech the purchaser to whose land it adjoined as pr distribution of the estate of sd deceased may appear and also one other lot of land of the estate of sd deceased under incumbrance as aforesaid of about 10 acres & some odd rods to Danl Morgan lying at the north end of the farm of sd deceased for the sum of £15.3.10 and also another lot of the land of sd deceased under incumbrance as aforesaid containing about thirty five acres & lying at the south end of sd farm and of the widow's dower which last mentioned lot was sold to Consider Sterry, Roger Sterry & John Sterry for the sum of £75.1.10, all of which sales have been made at private sale & as high as an puchaser would give that could be found and higher than any who offerd or appeard to buy, and great care has been taken to dispose of the out skirts of sd farm & sd dower so as to discommode the heirs of sd deceased as little as possible. The whole amount of sd sales amounted to the debt which appeard against sd estate being an execution nominally in favour of the Judge of this Court, but the debt due to Isreal Gorton of Cranston in the State of Rhode Island as surviving executor to the last will & testament of Joseph Fenner late of sd Cranston deceased of £81.9.3 L.M. & the interest & costs which have arisen thereon in due course of law increased the same to £91.4.2 as by the records & judgmt & Exn of the Superior Court at their March term at Norwich in New London County of 1792 may appear, and also to the sum of £4.14 L.M. as incident charges upon said sales & settlement of sd debt occasioned partly by the exersions made at the request of the heirs of sd estate to make such sales as should best accomodate them & leave the estate in the best condition for their interest & the subscriber has paid sd debt & canceld sd execution with all the incident charges agreeable to the sd orders from this Court which is reported & submitted to this Court by your honbl humbl servt.
