The Will of

George ESTMOND (1623-1667)

 

I have copied the following will from Ancestral Jigsaws - many thanks to tillymint.

 

In the name of God Amen, I George Estmond of the parish of Westham in Sussex, gent, being somewhat infirm of body but of a sound disposing mind and memory for this the Lord be praised do make my last Will and Testament in manner and form following

Imprimis: I bequeath my soul to God hoping to be saved through the only merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ. As for my body I commit that to the earth to be buried where it shall please my Executrix.

Item: I give and bequeath unto eight poor people of the parish where I shall be buried such as my Executrix shall think fit the sum of forty shillings to be distributed amongst them.

And in case either of my daughters shall happen to die before marriage or age of one and twenty years then my will and mind is that the legacy so to her given shall come (?) to her that shall (?) to survive.
