Since Mr. George Parker dec'd and Mr John Parker posted a bond with Mary Bonwell, the administress, for the performance of the administration, Hope also brought his action against Jno. Parker. After considering the petition, the court judged the request reasonable and ordered that Parker deliver for the orphan's use forth part of two thirds of the estate along with court costs. Jno. Parker of Matapany petitioned the court declaring that he and Major George Parker posted a bond to Col. Edmund Scarburgh and the rest of the justices that Widow Mary Bonwell would perform a letter of administration. George Parker and Jno. then took a counter-bond of 500 pounds sterling from Mary, the widow of James Bonwell and Roger Mikell to save the Parkers harmless. Parker produced the bond dated 28 October 1667, but Roge r Mikell denied it to be his act and deed and challenged Parker to prove it. Parker produced Mary (wife of Roger Mikell) and Ann Starling, who swore in open court that they saw Roger sign and seal the document. Since Parker was being sued by George Hope, guardian of Tho. Bonwell, and since order was passed against Parker for the orphan's part of the estate which Mikell refused to deliver, it was ordered that Mikell forthwith make payment according to the penalty of the bond 500 pounds sterling and court costs.
