Nathaniel is not in the will of his assumed father, Samuel Sr., written 2/10/1705/1706, probate 11/14/1706. Bermuda Archives, Book of Wills, Book 3, part 2, film 281, inventory pg. 168. Cited in Clara Hallett letter dated 1/8/1990. Since a Nathaniel Dunscombe is cited in the 7/29/1696 Association Oath Rolls source we may put his death date between 7/29/1696 and 2/10/1706. But a Nathaniel Dunscombe is a witness to the Jan. 29, 1726 will of Jeremiah Burgess of Hamilton Parish (Book of Wills, Book 2,1, p. 215 - Bermuda Archives). This may, or may not, be the same Nathaniel. Hallet cites a Nathaniel in a 1708 petition regarding various local policies in existence as a general inhabitant of Bermuda, as well as a Nathaniel of Hamilton Parish who appears in a 1727 assessment to raise money for the repair of fortifications (correspondence 3/2/2001).

According to Dunscomb, Trott threatened the widow with his sword, entered her house to search for money, and "looked under the bed."Then Will appeared, and Trott "put a pistol to his Breast and said he would shoot him through if hee would not show him the money."
