      Mar. 17, 1698/9 - An undated letter from Richard Boughton to the Prerogative Court concerning the estate of the late Philip Allen, deceased. The letter appears to be Boughton's response to the complaint of "Murphey Ward the grandfather" "touching my [Boughton's] giving Letters Testamentary to one James Hagan and Joseph Ward on ye estate of Philip Allen without due proof of ye will by ye oaths of ye witnesses or taking reasonable security."
      Source: Maryland Prerogative Court, Testamentary Proceedings, Liber 17, p. 271.
      Comment: Murphey Ward was the father-in-law of Philip Allen and the grandfather of Allen's children. In an Aug. 1698 proceeding in this matter (Liber 17, p. 187), the name shown as James "Waggon" or perhaps "Waggen" is probably the name shown here, presumably correctly, as James "Hagan."
