    The last will and testament of John Marsh, Sen., of Hartford, in the County of Hartford and Colony of Connecticut, in New England:

    As God hath given the earth to the children of man, divideing it to every one severally as He will, and doth induldge to them ye liberty of disposeing their worldly estate in a testimentary way to such as are to succeed them in the injoyment thereof, and their doing this seasonably and in a just and prudent manner being a likely means to prevent after trouble and contention about it, therefore I, who am old and now languishing under these delays of nature which forbode a speedy desolution of it, do, with submission to the will of God, make the following disposition of that part of the earth which through His goodness is continued in my possession:

    Imp, My will is yt all my just debts and funeral expenses be first paid without fraud or delay.

    Item. I give to each of my daughters now living, besides what they have already received, £10, to be paid within a year after my decease, either out of my lands at inventory price, or in current pay, at the election of my executors. Yet with this proviso, that they bear their several proportions of the debts and charges before mentioned.

    Item. I give to the children of my daughter lately deceased £10 over and above what she hath received in her lifetime, to be divided equally among them and paid as the abovesd. sum and upon the same condition.

    Item. I give to my son-in-law, Joseph Pratt, 5 shillings.

    Item. I give the rest of my sd. estate, that is to say, all my lands not otherwise disposed of, whether divided or undivided, to my sons, to be equally divided between them, excepting that I give 40 shillings more to my eldest son than to either of his brothers.

    Lastly, I do appoint and constitute my sons executors.
