(Residual Legatee) Probate Dispute2 March 1780 On 2 March 1780, Nathaniel Thayer, Cornelius Thayer, Samuel Bass, William Andrews, Deborah (Thayer) Whitworth, Hannah (Thayer) Abbott, Christian (Bass) Armstrong, Mary Thayer, Sarah (Thayer) White and Rebecca (Bass) Thomas Fowle, all of Boston and residual legatees resulting from the will of the Reverend Ebenezer Turell, submitted a document to the court addressing their concerns regarding the inequities between the value of silver and gold compared with the value of Continental currency, which had gone through several changes and devaluations during and after the Revolutionary War. In 1780, paper money in the new United States, called Continentals, was worth only about 1/40th of its face value. The document stated their understanding that Simon Tufts Esq. of Medford, as Executor to the last will and testament of Ebenezer Turell, late of Medford, Clerk, was entitled by the will to a legacy of £20, and was by virtue of his Executorship in possession of a sum of silver and gold coin, which according to a law of Massachusetts for regulating the value of silver and god coin, amounted to £503, 15s, 6p. Their petition went on to state that a dispute had arisen between the Executor Simon and several of the legatees regarding whether their legacies ought to be paid in silver and gold or in the present currency of the state. The petition's subscribers recommended that the Executor pay them 2/3 of their legacies in silver and gold, after deducting 1/2 of his own legacy, and that the Executor's other half be paid to himself in paper money. The petition went on to recommend that the £150 allowed the Executor for all his services in settling the estate be paid in paper money. The petition's subscribers, all residual legatees as the children, or their heirs, of Lydia (Turell) Thayer and Christian (Turell) Bass, both of whom were deceased sisters of the late Reverend Turell, agreed to be obligated to the court for the sum of £100,000 in lawful money of the state as protection for the Executor. Their document stated that in the case any debts owed to the estate were recovered which would increase the assets owed to the Executor, they would refund their prorated parts of those debts on the condition that their obligation of £100,000 to the court be voided and of no effect. Their petition concluded with the statement that should they fail to keep their agreement, their obligation would remain in full force and effect.5
(Residual Legatee) Massachusetts Money The pound was the currency of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and its colonial predecessors until 1793. Like the British pound sterling of that era, the Massachusetts pound was subdivided into 20 shillings, each of 12 pence, but the Massachusetts and British pounds were not equivalent in value. British and other foreign coins were widely circulated in Massachusetts, supplemented by locally-produced coins between about 1652 and 1682 and by local paper money from 1690.

The paper money issued in colonial Massachusetts was denominated in pounds, shillings, and pence. Initially, six shillings were equal to one Spanish dollar. After years of high inflation, in 1749 Massachusetts withdrew its paper money from circulation and returned to money in the form of coin.

After the American Revolutionary War began in 1775, the Continental Congress began issuing paper money known as Continental currency, or Continentals. Continental currency was denominated in dollars from 1/6 of a dollar to $80, including many odd denominations in between. During the Revolution, Congress issued $241,552,780 in Continental currency.

Continental currency depreciated badly during the war, giving rise to the famous phrase "not worth a continental". Several factors contributed to the declining value. Monetary policy was not coordinated between Congress and the states which, like Massachusetts, continued to issue too many bills of credit not backed by tangible assets. Congress and the states lacked the will or the means to retire the bills from circulation through taxation or the sale of bonds. Another problem was that the British successfully waged economic warfare by counterfeiting Continentals on a large scale.

By the end of 1778, Continentals retained from 1/5 to 1/7 of their face value. By 1780, the bills were worth 1/40th of face value. Congress attempted to reform the currency by removing the old bills from circulation and issuing new ones, without success. By May 1781, Continentals had become so worthless that they ceased to circulate as money. Benjamin Franklin noted that the depreciation of the currency had, in effect, acted as a tax to pay for the war. In the 1790s, after the ratification of the United States Constitution, Continentals could be exchanged for treasury bonds at 1% of face value. The Massachusetts state currency depreciated greatly and was replaced by the U.S. dollar in 1793.

The painful experience of the runaway inflation and collapse of the Continental dollar prompted the delegates to the Constitutional Convention to include the gold and silver clause into the United States Constitution so that the individual states could not issue bills of credit, or "make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts." This restriction of bills of credit was extended to the Federal Government, as the power to "emit bills" from the Articles of Confederation was abolished, leaving Congress with the power "to borrow money on credit."6,7
(Residual Legatee) Probate Dispute9 March 1780During the course of the Turell probate, Simon Tufts Esq., Executor, submitted itemized reports to the court accounting for his payments to beneficiaries and the expenses he incurred on estate business. On 9 March 1780, the Executor listed cash paid in the amount of £329, 3s, 8p to the residuary legatees.5

Gregory Baxter1

b. 1607, d. 21 June 1659
Birth*1607Gregory Baxter was probably born by 1607 based upon the estimated date of his marriage.2
Marriage*He married Margaret Paddy.3
Will*2 June 1659In his will dated 2 June 1659, Gregory Baxter left his son-in-law, Samuel Deering, his "little piece of salt meadow adjoining his own house, being in quantitie about an acre of ground." Seventeen days later, on 19 June 1659, Gregory added a codicil that voided Samuel's original gift and substituted two weather sheep for the land which, instead, was to go to his wife Margaret and their son John. To his granddaughter Bethiah Deering he gave £10 to be paid to her when she became 16 years of age. Also to Bethiah, he bequeathed one black calf of a year old and one black young ewe sheep, both to be delivered to her father to be improved by him for her use until she reached 16 years of age. To his daughter Abigail and her husband, his son-in-law Joseph Adams, he bequeathed "six acres of land lying in the Great Field...and also my little island of salt marsh which lyeth at the head of the Salt Creek..." To Abigail and Joseph's son Joseph, he gave half his lands at the Captain's Plain, and if the child were to die without an heir, the lands were to go to Abigail's next oldest son or daughter if she had no son. To his son-in-law Joseph Adams, he also bequeathed his old mare. The rest of his estate he gave to his wife Margaret and their son John, his wife to have all the use of it while she lived and after her death John to have it all with the exception of two cows that Margaret could dispose of as she wished at her death. The remaining animals, Gregory's horse, two oxen, one cow and one steer were bequeathed to his son John.4,1,2
Death*21 June 1659He died on 21 June 1659 in Braintree.2

(Names mixed up and at least one generation skipped.) Samuel's son Josiah likely wrote parts of the obituary from his memory of stories his father had told him. And, of course, neither of them had any first hand information of anything before Samuel's birth in 1789.
