Stating also that the deceased John Bolton died without issue, John E. Howard requested that Jonas Hartwell, a selectman of West Bridgewater, be appointed Administrator of John Bolton's estate.1
(Judge) Administration4 October 1831The estate of John Bolton of West Bridgewater, who died intestate, was opened for probate on 4 October 1831 in East Bridgewater. Jonas Hartwell was appointed Administrator by Wilkes Wood Esq., Judge of the Probate of Wills, and for granting Letters of Administration, and Hartwell paid a Surety Bond of $200 with Benjamin B. Howard and Libbeus Packard as witnesses.2
(Judge) Inventory3 April 1832The initial Inventory of the estate of John Bolton, late of West Bridgewater, was filed with Justice Wilkes Wood on 3 April 1832 in East Bridgewater. It had been completed by appraisers Nathan Alger Jr., George W. Lathrop and Stillman Alger and sworn to by Administrator Jonas Hartwell. The initial inventory of the estate was valued at $239.89 and included personal and household items in addition to notes of loans, with interest, against three individuals: Willis Alger, Nathan Alger and John Willis owed the deceased $150.59, $29.75 and $25.32 respectively.2
(Judge) Final Accounting2 April 1833One year later, on 2 April 1833, a second and possibly final Inventory and Expenses of the estate of John Bolton, was submitted by Administrator Jonas Hartwell and filed with Probate Justice Wilkes Wood in East Bridgewater. New items totaling $162.14 had been added to the $239.89 value of the initial inventory making the total value of his estate $402.03 before expenses. $150.00 and $10.00 had been received from the estates of Nathan Alger and Abiezer Alger Esq. respectively, interest received totaled $2.00 and there was $.14 cash in hand. The Administrator requested and received allowance in the amount of $137.72 for the following estate expenses: $5.16 in funeral charges, $34.50 for the deceased's last sickness, $20.11 paid to Dr. Caleb Swan, $6.47 paid to Dr. Noah Whitman, $1.70 in expenses for appraising the estate, $12.28 lost in the sale of the personal estate, $1.00 paid to Charles Hayden, $15.00 for a pair of gravestones and $41.50 for settling the estate.

The net value of the estate, after expenses, in 1833 was $264.31 which in today's dollars (2009) would be about $6,830. No mention of a wife, children or family members were found in the probate papers nor was there any indication of how the closing amount was disbursed.2

(Executor) WillJohn was one of three executors appointed by the will of Robert Burrowes Esq. of London who died in February 1819. Among other bequests and directives by Robert's last will and testament, he had directed the residue of his fortune to be laid out in lands as contiguous as practicable to Stradone in the county of Cavan, Ireland. In addition to John, Robert's will appointed his only son and heir, Thomas Burrowes of Stradone, and nephew Arnold Robinson Burrowes of Benarth, Wales, eldest son and heir of Robert's brother Thomas, his executors.1
Probate*18 December 1819John was appointed executor of the estate of Robert Burrowes, and a notice appeared in the London Gazette on 18 December 1819 stating that pursuant to a Decree of the High Court of Chancery, made to a cause Woolmore against Burrowes, the creditors of Robert Burrowes, late of Bolton Street, Piccadilly, in the county of Middlesex, and of Heston, near Hounslow, in the same county, Esq. deceased (who died in or about the month of February 1819) are forthwith to come in and prove their debts to one of the Masters of the Court or, in default thereof, they will be excluded the benefit of the Decree John Woolmore.4
Residence*1821He lived on Bruton Street, London, Mayfair, Middlesex County, England, in 1821.1
(Executor) Deed Memorial30 June 1821John, as an executor of Robert Burrowes' estate, was party to a Memorial Deed of lease and release dated 29 and 30 June 1821 regarding the conditions and release of the Hinds family's lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, County Cavan, made between Walter Hinds Esq. of the city of Dublin, eldest son and heir at law of Walter Hinds late of Bruce Hall Esq. in the county of Cavan deceased, and also administrator of the estate of his sister Martha Hinds, also deceased, of the first part, George Warner of College Green in the city of Dublin, his uncle and one of the aldermen of that city, and his mother Anne (Hinds) Hinds of Blessington street in or near the city of Dublin, widow of Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall, deceased, who were named as trustees and executors in the last will and testament of Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall deceased, of the second part, George Hinds of the city of Dublin Esq., youngest son and one of the legatees named in the last will and testament of Walter Hinds of Bruce Hall deceased of the third part, Isaac Hinds of the city of Dublin, watchmaker, sole executor named in the last will and testament of his mother, Anne (Slator) Hinds, the elder, hereinafter which the said Anne Hinds the elder was the sole executrix named in the last will and testament of her son Alexander Hinds deceased, hereinafter also named Samuel Kennedy of Killeshandra in the county of Cavan, apothecary, and Elizabeth Kennedy otherwise Hinds his wife, and Anne McCluskey of the city of Dublin, widow and executrix of the last will and testament of Thomas Hinds late of the city of Dublin, gentleman deceased and which said Isaac Hinds, Alexander Hinds, Elizabeth Kennedy and Thomas Hinds were four of the children of Thomas Hinds the elder, thereinafter named of the fourth part, and Thomas Burrowes, Arnold Robinson Burrowes and John Woolmore of Stradone House, County Cavan, Benarth, Wales and Bruton Street, London, respectively, of the fifth part.

The deed began by outlining the Hinds family's history with the lands, reciting first that Walter Hinds, formerly of Corrakane in the county of Cavan, was seized in fee of and in the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy previous to the year 1770, and that, being so seized, had conveyed the lands to his son Thomas Hinds as a child's portion in the marriage settlement agreement he made in August 1770 with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford, father of Thomas' wife Anne (Slator) Hinds. And reciting that, as a part of that agreement, after the death of Thomas, his widow Anne was to receive a jointure of £50 a year payable out of the lands. The agreement also directed that, after the death of Thomas, the lands should descend to his male issue and that, after the death of his widow Anne, her jointure should revert to the couple's male issue. The agreement also permitted Thomas, at any time he thought proper, to raise the sum of £1000 as a portion for each of his younger children, whether males or females.

The 1821 deed then recited that the marriage between Thomas Hinds and Anne Slator was duly had and solemnized and that Thomas entered into possession of the lands and remained seized thereof until the time of his death. It recited that he died in 1794 leaving Anne Hinds otherwise Slator his widow, also since deceased, and seven children of the marriage, namely Walter Hinds, his eldest son and heir at law, Alexander Hinds, his second son since deceased, Thomas Hinds, his third son since deceased, Isaac Hinds, Martha Warner, now the wife of George Warner, Elizabeth Kennedy and Mary Hinds. It recited that previous to his death, Thomas Hinds duly made and published his last will and testament whereby he left to his eldest son Walter the lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy, and to each of his six younger children the sum of £1000. His will had appointed his wife Anne Hinds, his son-in-law George Warner, and his second son Alexander Hinds his executors.

The 1821 deed next recited that Thomas Hinds the younger was also dead, having first duly made his will whereof he appointed his wife Anne McCluskey his executrix, and that his second son Alexander Hinds was also dead but, previous to his death, had duly made and published his last will and testament by which he appointed his mother, Anne Hinds the elder, his sole executrix, and that Anne Hinds the elder was also deceased and that she had by her last will appointed her son Isaac Hinds her sole executor. The death of Mary Hinds, another of the children of Thomas and Anne Hinds the elder, was also recited, with the statement that her brother Isaac had obtained letters of administration for all of her properties.

The 1821 deed went on to recite that Walter Hinds, upon the death of his father Thomas, entered into possession of the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy and that by deeds of lease and release, followed by a deed of common recovery, both in 1795, had become seized in his demesne, as of fee, of and in the lands and premises of Gortnatrieve and Behy.
