Jonathan Fairbanks in his will left 40 shillings to each of his deceased daughter Susan's  four children by Ralph Day.  
They had five children, but Elizabeth was born June 16, 1648 and died later that year, twenty years prior to the will.  
Hence the will gave to Jonathan's four living Day grandchildren.  No one would have left 40 shillings to a 
dead infant.  The will also stipulated that they be paid their 40 shillings "as they shall attain lawful age",  
which again eliminates Elizabeth, the deceased child.
