(Executor) Will25 March 1747Thomas Hancock was named as an Executor of the estate and Trustee of the Trust directed by the will of the Reverend Benjamin Colman dated 25 March 1747 in Boston. Describing them as his honored friends, Benjamin's will appointed Benjamin Colman, Jacob Wendell Esq., Deacon John Phillips Esq. and Thomas Hancock Executors of the estate and of the Trust that was to be funded, after the just payment of his debts and legacies, with his bonds, mortgages and monies, their yearly income, his house, and the proceeds from the sale of his personal estate, together with his little silver plate and household goods. The will directed the Trustees, relying on their love and goodness, to accept the appointment for the sake of his poor, helpless grandson John Dennie. It described, in some detail and with conditions, his instructions on how his grandson was to be raised to manhood.1
(Trustee) TrustThomas Hancock was one of four Executors and Trustees named in the will of the Reverend Benjamin Colman, which directed that a Trust for his grandson John Dennie be created. He ordered that the residue of his library be sold and the proceeds, together with his little silver plate and household goods, be added to the bonds, mortgages and monies he left, and that after the just payment of debts and legacies, the yearly income of the remaining personal estate, together with his house in Brattle Street, Boston, his only real property, be used to fund the Trust. He appointed his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman and honored friends Jacob Wendell Esq., John Phillips Esq. and Thomas Hancock as Executors of both his estate and the Trust, relying on their love and goodness to accept the appointment for the sake of his poor, helpless grandson, for his custodial and desired, both worldly and spiritual good. It described, in some detail and with conditions, his instructions on how his grandson was to be raised to manhood.

In order that they might achieve that end, Colman empowered his Executors and Trustees, according to their best judgment, to rent, demand and receive rent, defend his title and property, to let out monies upon bond and to demand, receive, sue for, and recover monies due upon bond or mortgage, to also make necessary repairs and defray every arising charge. Most especially, though, he entrusted them to care for the board, schooling and education of his beloved grandson; to bring him up to learning or to put him to trade or merchandise, as they shall judge most fitting and convenient. And adding that if his nephew Benjamin Colman, or other of his honored Executors could board him and see to his profitable and pious instruction, or take him as their apprentice, it would be his wish.

The will informed his Executors and Trustees that, as a result of Articles of Indenture, or legal contract, agreed upon between himself and his son-in-law Albert Dennie, the natural father of his only branch and grandson, the boy's father had committed to Colman's care and ordering, all that concerned the education and support of his grandson John Dennie. The agreement gave Colman the right and responsibility to do for his grandson as a father for his child and empowered him to provide for him by will and testament as he was now doing. The will then committed John Dennie to the care and ordering of his worthy Trustees and Executors throughout his whole education in non age, requiring him to be respectful and subject to them as to his natural parent and guardian. If John should prove disrespectful, the will empowered his Trustees and Executors to withhold and deny to John, when he came of age, the £3,000 legacy bequeathed to him, and also to deny him from coming into possession of his dwelling house in Brattle Street. If John were to prove to be impolite or disrespectful, immoral or impious in the sober judgment and conscience of his Trustees and Executors, the will then ordered that his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman, who was also a Trustee, be put immediately into possession of Colman's house and land in Brattle Street, to remain unto him and the heirs of his body, and their heirs also lawfully begotten, forever. The will added that if John were to become or remain impolite or disrespectful, immoral or impious when he reached the age of 22 years, then the £3,000 bequeathed to him, together with all that should remain of his personal estate in the hands of his Executors and Trustees be equally divided among the surviving grandchildren, or their heirs, of his brother John Colman.

If, on the other hand, his grandson John Dennie, by the Grace of God, for which he fervently prayed for him, prove himself a sober and virtuous youth, in a judgment of charity, with his parental blessing on him, he confirmed to him the £3,000 legacy at the age of 22 years, and with great pleasure he bequeathed to John his dwelling house and land in Brattle Street, to remain unto him and to the heirs of his body lawfully begotten, forever. However, if John were to die without heirs, then the house and land should remain with his nephew Benjamin Colman of Boston, merchant, and to his son Benjamin and the heirs of their bodies lawfully begotten, forever.

The will ordered his Executors and Trustees, within the year following his death, to make the tender of his house in Brattle Street to his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman for him to occupy and dwell in, instructing him to keep it in good repair until the day of his grandson John reaching the full age of 22 years. His nephew Benjamin was ordered to pay rent of no more than £70 per annum, and that he then surrender it up to John Dennie, or legal heir of his body, or rent it of him or his as may be agreeable to him and them.1
Death*1 August 1764He died at about three o'clock on 1 August 1764 at age 61 after having been seized about noon of the same day, just as he was entering the Council Chamber in Boston.2,6,3

John Hardgrove1

Marriage*before 20 April 1809He married, as her second husband, Martha (______) Heaton before 20 April 1809 in Washington County. It is clear that Martha Heaton, widow of Thomas Heaton, married a man with the surname of Hardgrove as her name changed during the administration of Thomas's estate after 20 April 1809 to Martha Hardgrove late Heaton. It is not certain, however, if the given name of the man she married was John.1
Administration*18 December 1809 On 18 December 1809, John Hardgrove appeared in person before H. Wallace, a Justice of the Peace for Washington County, to present a list of monies he was owed from the estate of Thomas Heaton. He stated he was owed a total of $35 and itemized the amounts beginning with $6 for cash lent to Thomas on 25 June 1807 that, for verification, was in Thomas Heaton's book by entry in his own hand in his lifetime. He was owed $3 for two days grading and two days mowing and hauling in hay in 1807, $20 for cash lent to his widow Martha Heaton on 3 April 1808 for her expenses when she went after him on his return from the territory of Orleans, and $6 paid to Jeremiah Heaton to settle an amount Jeremiah had loaned to Martha Heaton on 13 May 1808 against the estate of her deceased husband Thomas Heaton.1
(Creditor) Administration29 February 1812The final accounting for the estate of Thomas Heaton, dated 29 February 1812, reported a zero balance after a total amount of $1,848.62 in credits and debits. The itemized list of those who had received disbursements included a payment to John Hardgrove in the amount of $35.12.1
