Another use of the letter of attorney was to authorize someone to collect a legacy left by someone in England to a relative in New England.
On 19 September 1646,  Hugh Burt of Linne granted a letter of attorney unto James Everill of Boston, shoemaker, to ask & receive of Susan Burt the widow relict of Thomas Burt in Darkin in the County of Surrey deceased & sole executrix of his last will & testament the sum of twenty pounds the annuities of the two years last past granted him by the last will & testament of the said Thomas Burt deceased [Aspinwall 29-30].
James Everill passed this obligation on to others, and the legacy apparently remained uncollected for a few more years.
Then, on 15 January 1648/9,  Hugh Burt of Lynn son of Jo[hn] Burt sometimes of Dorking in the County Surrey deceased & elder brother of Thomas Burt late of Dorking aforesaid deceased did constitute Edward Burt his son his true & lawful attorney general, with power of substitution for recovery of all debts, also set, let, alien or sell all or any the houses & lands (at Cowcross near London or elsewhere) descending unto him from John Burt late of St Clements near London, locksmith, deceased [Aspinwall 189-90].
Based on these clues, various researchers have confirmed this origin in Dorking, Surrey, utilizing English probate re-cords and parish registers [GM 2:1:501-4].  Hugh Burt's pursuit of his legacies generated more than just letters of attorney. Aspinwall also recorded a deposition which was used to establish Burt's identity, and therefore his right to the legacy.
On 15 January 1648/9,  W[illia]m Mullings & John Cuddington did upon oath testify that Hugh Burt of Linne was son of John Burt sometimes of Dorking in Surrey deceased & elder brother of Tho[mas] Burt late of Dorking aforesaid deceased [Aspinwall 190].
As might be guessed, William Mullins (son of Williams Mullins of the Mayflower) and John Coddington were able to make this deposition because they also derived from Dorking, Surrey [GMB 2:1315-16; MF 16:1:14-19; TAG 20:94].

William had a will 3 on 1 Mar 1710 in Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island, United States. His will was probated 4 on 15 Aug 1710 in Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island, United States.

12. WILLIAM5 WILBORE (John,4 Joseph,3 Nicholas,2 Thomas  ?), of Braintree, co. Essex, England, and Portsmouth, R. I., married either in England or Ameiica, MARTHA It is not known when William came to America, but according to the Manor Rolls of Braintree he bought land in Brain-tree of Jonas Webb on 30 March 1647, as William Wilbore, son of John. On 2 Jan. 1650 he sold this land to Thomas Rowell and Mary, his wife. According to these transactions William was not married in 1647, for usually in the Manor Rolls the name of the wife is given when a person buys land. We do not hear of William again until 10 July 1654, when his cousin, Samuel Wilbore, transferred ten acres of land to him in Portsmouth, land that belonged formerly to Thomas Emmons.

William Wilbore's will was made 1 March 1710 and proved in Portsmouth 15 Aug. 1710 (see "Wildbores in America"). His children were never recorded, but are all given in his will. Arnold's "Vital Records of Rhode Island" gives a list of his children in both Little Compton and Tiverton, with the years of birth, but on looking at the original records in Little Compton they are not to be found. They are, however, in Otis Wilbor's transcript of the records in Little Compton and are also given in the same way in a fairly modern book in Tiverton, which gives the year of birth of the children and also his own birth, namely, 1630. This would seem to be the work of Otis Wilbor, who died in 1856, and consequently the births given are only approximate. The original will of William Wilbore is in the hands of Mrs. Edward P. Garland of Wellesley Hills, Mass., a descendant. In signing William always makes a mark or "W" for Wilbore. His lack of education is rather surprising when you consider that his cousin, Samuel, and his three sons could write, and the son, Shadrach, was a beautiful penman. This situation would seem to come from a difference of environment and would be easily explained if we knew that John Wilbore of Braintree, who went to the Isle of Old Providence off South America, was William's father, John.
If John Wilbore returned to Braintree in 1641, after the Spaniards conquered Old Providence, and brought with him our William, it would fit in with his buying the land in Braintree in 1647.
