|The will was proved and has the following addition|
At Cricklade the fifth day of May 1736 Walter Brind and Benjamin Brind the executors above named were duly sworn before me.
As Phebe Saunders is not mentioned in the will of Mary's husband George (1723) it is likely that she is Mary's daughter from her previous marriage probably to John Portlock. This will shows that she also had a son from that marriage, Henry who married Elizabeth and that they lived in South Cerney, Gloucestershire.
There is a Phebe Portlock born to John Portlock in South Cerney in 1691.
