    Page 467.- "Whereas, I, PETER TITUS, of the town of Hempstead, being in perfect mind." I leave to my wife Martha all my bedding and household goods, and four of my best cows, and my roan horse, and a negro woman and a negro man. I leave to my grand son James, son of my eldest son, James Titus, 5 shillings. I leave to my sons, Peter and Robert, a certain tract of land lying at South, called Great Neck, bounded south by an Indian path, "north by the Card," west by a swamp, "and east by the Card," being 16 acres. I leave to my sons, Richard, Peter, and Robert, all my right of lands, divided and undivided. I leave to my son Robert a piece of land that I had of Daniel Wright, lying at the north west corner of said Wright's land. And my son Robert is to provide a good comfortable maintainance for his mother, Martha Titus, during her life. All the rest of my negroes and stock to my children, Peter, Robert, Richard, and Elizabeth Townsend. I make my sons executors.
