John Jarvice – Court Statement – 1680 – with partial translation

This is the court statement regarding Elizabeth Jervis’ request for Letters of Administration for the estate of her deceased husband John Jarvice.

I assume that the probate judge is granting a letter of administration to Obedia Seddon, Elizabeth’s designated representative. But I’m not sure, since I haven’t translated the entire document.

If you can translate it, that would be great. Please let me know.
