Estate Accounts and Inventories-1732-1732

There is a book titled Surry County, Virginia, Wills, Estate Accounts and Inventories, 1730-1800 by Lyndon H Hart, 111 On page 4 or page 150 (both are lsted) there is an inventory account listed for a William Ray or Wray whodied in 1731. It was ordered 20 Oct 1731 and recorded Jan 19,1732. Is this like an estate sale? I thought if I could find if there was an estate sale it would list the people that attended the sale and I might be able to find who this William Wray or Ray was and which Rayfamily he was from. I think his wife's anme was Elizazbeth but I am not sure. His will was torn and tattgered and could not be read except for his son William as executor and his brotgher in law William Pitman or Pittman. Therre was a William Wray or Ray that died idn 1735 in Surry co va. Maybe that was this William Ray's son. thanks, Ross
