Since George Parker was not present, it was ordered that the sheriff summon him to the next court. Later that same day, Mrs. Elizabeth Parker, widow of recently deceased William Parker, petitioned that William who had "departed this life in ye Province of Maryland," had left a small extate there. Elizabeth had only a few items in her possession, an inventory of which the court ordered to be recorded: a bed, bolster, rug and blanket; a pewter tumbler and a small "gold hoop ring." The list was signed on 2 Jun 1703, by Elizabeth Parker alias Scarburgh.
