    Hinsdale, Barnabas, Hartford. Invt. £483-00-00. Taken 17 March, 1725, by John Skinner, Thomas Seymour and Samuel Catlin. Will dated 25 January, 1724-5:

    I, Barnabas Hinsdale of Hartford, do make this my last will and testament: I give and bequeath to Martha, my beloved wife, the improvement of 1-2 of my house during the time she remains my widow; 1-3 part of all my moveable estate to be her own forever, and 1-3 part of all my real estate in houseing and lands for her improvement during life. I give to my eldest son Barnabas Hinsdale i20 out of my estate (besides what I have given him in and by a deed of gift), to be to him, his heirs and assigns forever. I give all the rest of my estate, both real and personal, unto my children, Jacob, John, Daniel, Amos, Martha, Sarah, Elizabeth and Mary Hinsdale, to be equally divided among them, only Sarah to have £10 and John £15 less in their portions than the other children for the trades they have learned. Upon that account I think it reasonable so much of their portion should be abated. To be to them and their heirs and assigns forever.
