"The first John Proctor, of Ipswich (I doubt if he ever lived in Salem) must have died before
11 Oct. 1672, when an inventory of his estate was taken. His will, as Savage says, names wife
Martha, grandchildren Martha Hartley and John Hadley, daughters Martha White, Abigail
Varney, Sarah Dodge and Hannah Weden and sons John, Joseph and Benjamin. Martha was
probably the wife of James White (who was present in jail when the second John Proctor
made his will), Abigail was the wife of Thomas Varney and Sarah was the wife of John Dodge
(son of William Dodge senior)."
