    Case, John, Simsbury. Died 22 May, 1733. Invt. £1340-00-00. Taken 8 June, 1733, by Joseph Case, John Humphrey and Daniel Addams. Will dated 14 September, 1730.

    I, John Case, Sen., of Simsbury, do make this my last will and testament: I give to my well-beloved wife Sarah 1-3 part of my now dwelling house and barn, with 1-3 part of my improveable land during her natural life, and also 1-3 part of my moveable estate forever. I give to my son John a certain piece of land lying on the east side of the river in Simsbury, being 12 acres that his barn now stands upon, sd. land lying westward of Buttolph's house, north of the highway, bounded northerly side on Josh. Holcomb's land. I give to my son Daniel the pasture lott that his house stands upon, with 4 rods south of his dwelling house and so running west 1 1-2 rods, south of the south corner of sd. Daniel's land, straight through the lott to the west end, and also the 2 1-2-acre lott that bounds south upon sd. pasture and north upon Samuel Adams's land. I give to my son Jonathan my homelott that I now dwell upon, with all the buildings thereon. The remaining part of all my lands I give unto my sons John, Daniel and Jonathan, to be equally divided between them, except that I give to my son John £10 more than an equal part. I give to the heirs of my daughter Mary, 10 shillings to her son and 5 shillings to each of her daughters, besides what I have already given her in her lifetime. I give to my daughter Sarah so much in moveable estate as to make up £60 as money with what I have already given her, with this promise, that my wife Sarah quits all her claim in the law that she has or may have unto lands that descended to her from her Father Holcomb equally to my sons, John, Daniel and Jonathan; but, if not, I give unto my sd. daughter 10 shillings. Also I give unto my daughter Hannah £60 in moveable estate with what she has already received, in the whole £60 as money. I appoint my three sons, John, Daniel and Jonathan, executors.
