Note: An executrix is a female individual who is in charge of taking care of the provisions that were put on a will before the death of a testator (in this case, Samuel Hilditch is the testator). Hannah was responsible for carrying out all of his wishes that were mentioned in the will that was created before Samuel's death. Also, since Samuel died, Hannah is now in charge of all the disbursement of an estate's assets.  Source:     "Dictionary."
