“Extract from Mrs. Fridesweed Turner’s Will
Dated 31 May 1726.  She was buryed 28. December 1727.

Item.  I give and bequeath unto the Poor People of ye Parish of Widdington
 in the County of Essex ye sum of five Pounds of Lawfull Money of Great Britain
to the laid out within two years after my Decease by my Executor and the
Churchwardens and Overseers of the Poor of ye said Parish in a
Purchase of Lands.  The Interest, Product or Rent of such Lands I will be yearly
laid out by the Rector Churchwardens and Overseers of the Poor of the said Parish 
for ye time being at Christmas time yearly and every year for ever towards the 
Cloathing poor widows and poor children and for breed for ye 

Poor of ye said Parish of Widdington and to be disposed of to no other use intent
and Purpose whatsoever. 
”Robert Eden Executor about two years after Mrs. Turners
decease agreed to pay 5ah a year 
to be laid out in bread for the poor, Wch was done
accordingly for two or three years at Cmas.  
But afterwards was neglected for 7 years
or more before his death: and then the Principle itself was lost. 
The adminstratix
his Widow denying there were assets sufficient to pay ye debt any more than most 
of the debts Wch he owed at his death.  Whereby many of ye Creditors lost all, some
half, and some two thirds of their debts.
