The following example is one which locates the name of the second husband of the widow Kingston.
Kingston, Thomas, the agent of Thomas Cowell, owned a plantation in the colony about 1636. Upon the death of Kingston, his widow became the wife of Thomas Loving who appropriated the credits and merchandise of Cowell. Upon the petition of Cowell, Loving was required by the Governor and Council to take an inventory of the property of the former (in his possession) and to give bond in a large sum to hold it without further purloining it. Source: Letter from Governor and Council to the Privy Council, British State Papers, Colonial.
