    saving the lives of Bishop Spratt, Archbishop Sand-
    croft, the Duke of Marlborough and others, by detecting
    the falsity of evidence given by certain witnesses in
    respect to an alleged plot to assassinate King William.
    His will dated March 6, 1730-1, with codicils in
    1732=3, was proven Jan 16, 1734, by his nephew, Rev.
    Thomas Moore, D.D., and his neice, Mary, the wife of
    Robert Berkeley, Esq., He left considerable legacies
    to his nephew, the Rev. Charles Sear, son of his sister
