Will*11 March 1671Describing herself as weak in body, but blessed by God of a sound mind, Elizabeth signed her will on 11 March 1671 in Boston before witnesses John Hord Jr. and Hannah Townsend.9
Death*She probably died in Boston sometime after writing her will and before her estate was probated. She was probably between 65 and 70 years of age.16
Probate*30 January 1682The estate of Elizabeth Maynard, late of Boston, widow, deceased was opened for probate on 30 January 1682 in Boston, Suffolk County, and her son Nathaniel Heaton and Cornelius Fisher, her deceased daughter Leah's husband, both of Wrentham and identified as "two of her sons", were given full power to administer her estate. They gave bond, and the next day submitted an inventory taken by John Marion Sr. and Robert Butcher that included both real and personal property valued at £110:04:03 in total.16
Will27 December 1683When the will of Elizabeth Maynard was exhibited to the court on 27 December 1683 by her son Nathaniel Heaton, her Executor, Mr. Edward Rawson and John Marion Sr. made oath that they were present when Elizabeth "Minor" signed her will, that it was written by Rawson and that she was of disposing mind.17
