Deposition of Elizabeth Robinson aged about 45 or 46 years: About four years ago in March or April, when Elizabeth was at Garathia (sic) House, Col.

Scarburgh said it would be good pay, and Ann agreed. When Elizabeth told Hinman, he seemed very glad. Later Elizabeth heard Hinman say that Capt. Jenifer advised him to "arrest" the administrators [of Scarburgh's estate], and if they would not pay him, then to "arrest" Jenifer and he would "sue his bond of the administrators" and make them pay him. Signed, Elizabeth (ER) Robinson. Recorded 7 May 1675 by Jno. Washbourne.2
