1.  Stephen E. Bradley, Jr.  c1990.  The Wills of Tyrrell County, North Carolina. Self-published, Keysville, VA (courtesy of Bill Gray):
# 43  January 11, 1764.  Probate Mar. Term 1766 John Blount
To my sons Thomas, John, Greshom Blount 1 shilling sterling each.
To my Daughters Margaret Steely, Elizabeth Swain 1 shilling each.
To my 2 youngest daughters Deborah Gray and Refina Blount all my household goods, livestock.
Ex: My friend Henry Gray, Refina Blount.
Wit: Frans. Egleton, Jeroboam Thomas, Godfrey Gray
The "f" in "Refina" would appear to be a misreading of "long-s."

To be tithable, a male had to be 16 or over; to be taxable, I believe a male had to be 21 or over.  Presumably, the male with John Sr. is his son, Thomas.
