On the following page is a transcribed copy of The Last Will and Testament for Francis F. Perry, from North Carolina public records.
This document shows a fascinating glimpse into the life and times of Francis F. Perry in 18th century America.

The Earl of Granville granted land to Francis Perry of 300 acres in 1752. Francis was found in the muster rolls of Colonel William Eaton's Regiment in Captain Osborne Jeffrey's Company in 1754, as were five of his brothers (all except Burrell). This army was raised to defend the inhabitants against the Indians in the French and Indian War. These troops were the first troops raised by any Colony for service outside its own borders.

Francis Perry is found in Wake County, NC, in land transactions up through 1810, with his will probated in 1814.
