When Arew's wife asked how he could prove that, Brotherton replied, "My dame gave me a calf, and when I went to Watts Island to live, I desired Jno. Arew to mark it for me, and the said Arew marked it of his own mark." The wife of John Arew "was disturbed at these words." Brotherton asked Turner to "bear witness of what I have said" for he could prove it to be true by two witnesses. Signed and sworn in open court 18 January 1680/81, by Roger (X) Turner.8

At the last court John Jeffries, Esqr., & Company brought an action against Thomas May; Benjamin Eyre (attorney for Jeffries) declared that Mr. Francis Lee (agent of Jeffries) had three hogsheads of tobacco purchased from John Abbot. He ordered May, as skipper of a sloop then riding in Hunting Creek, to take the hogsheads on board and gave him "notes for the said tobaccos." May ordered Abbot to transport the hogsheads and to leave them in the woods, where by May's neglect they were "damnified by rain." When Lee found out, he procured a warrant from Capt. Richard Hill; it directed John Arew and others to view the hogsheads. They determined that 300 lbs tobacco damage had been done. Since it appeared by the depositions of John Abbot, Jr., and Robt.

German and Arew were to take an exact inventory and act as trustees till the next court, when they were to make their report.12

The court thought fit that the account remain in the clerk's office and that the estate remain in the hands of Arew and Jerman till the next court.
