The following document was obtained by Bob Dutton.  I have converted the long s (looks like an f) to a convential s.  The document was pre-printed.  The text in script was written in.

The significance of the probate record is that it documents three Kingsman Duttons: the Kingsman Dutton who signed the document and was one of the administrators; the deceased husband of Ruth (Watson) Dutton whose marriage to Kingsman Dutton is documented; and Ruth's son Kingsman who is described as being in his minority.

Sealed with our Seals. Dated the Fifteenth Day of June in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty three.
