Will - Dower and Thirds

Posted: 1350941231000
Classification: Query
I have recently been transcribing a Will dated 1756 in which a widow was well provided for. Except that if she re-married her annuity would be halved and she would be expected to relinquish any claim to "dower and thirds".

What were dower and thirds?
