In the name of God Amen.

The rents arising from the said Room until the death of my wife Mary Mugford I do give and bequeath unto my said wife and at her decease if the aforesaid grandson Anthony shall not have attained the full age of twenty one years I do order and direct that the said rents shall be received by my son William Mugford for the use of my aforesaid grandsons William and Anthony in such way as he in his judgment shall think fit.
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor. |
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
