      Imprimis: I give unto my wife Sarah forever 1-3 part of my moveable estate; also the use of 1-2 of my houseing and lands during her natural life. I give to my son Cornelius lands I have already given him, and the residue of a bond given me by Jacob Phelps obliging him to give me a deed of land. I give unto my son John 1 parcel of land containing 12 acres, lying on the west side of the street and bounding south on the heirs of Samuel Phelps decd. I give unto my son Timothy 2 pieces of land, one lying at the old house and the other across the way near to it, both containing about 12 acres. I give to my son Isaac my dwelling house, barn and homestead, containing about 26 acres, bounding north by ye street, on the heirs of Samuel Phelps, and to go east as far as Peter Brown's acre as it is called. Also I give to my son Isaac, as a peculiar gift, my tools and provisions made for a blacksmith. Also, whereas I have hereby given to my son Isaac in houseing and lands to a greater value than to the rest of my sons, my will is that my three sons, Cornelius, John and Timothy, shall have in my other lands indifferently taken till each of them be made equal at inventory apprisement with Isaac's houseing and lands, only excepting from all my sons my wife's improvement as given to her. I give unto my daughter Sarah Hutchingson, and to her heirs and assigns forever, œ120, to be paid to her in moveable estate. My will is that my four sons aforenamed shall in equal share be at the trouble, cost and charge of providing for Samuel Mansfield during his natural life for ye necessaries thereof. And in case that they or either of them neglect or refuse to do the same, that then he or they shall fall short in his or their portions accordingly, and the same be improved for the support and comfort of the sd. Samuel Mansfield from time to time. Lastly, my will is that after my funeral charges, just debts and legacies are paid and Samuel Mansfield duly provided for, that the residue of my estate, both real and personal, shall be equally divided among my four sons in equal shares. I appoint my sons Cornelius, John and Timothy to be executors.
